"Honoured, I had the best seat in the house @rogerfederer was on fire today on the court and with strategies off it."

India's Davis Cup star Rohan Bopanna shared the sentiments of his colleague as he also took to Twitter to express his delight.

Federer first paired up with Sania, and eased past the pair of Bruno Soares and Daniela Hantuchova 6-0, before beating Czech Tomas Berdych in his singles match.
