Roger Federer has given a hilarious response to Alexander Zverev accidentally throwing his tennis racket into the crowd at the Shanghai Masters, during his Round of 32 match against Jeremy Chardy.

Roger Federer used a number of ‘stunned’ emojis as he reacted to a bizarre incident that saw Alexander Zverev’s racket being flung into the Shanghai Masters crowd.

Zverev was in the middle of a tie break against Jeremy Chardy, when he appeared to lose his grip on his racket.

As he struck the ball, his racket broke free of his hand, and was flung into the crowd, leaving onlookers bewildered and laughing.

The fifth seed immediately apologised to the crowd, and saw the funny side of the incident – likely because he was well on his way to securing his spot in the next round.

Roger, please control your kid

Meanwhile, Federer, who won his Round of 32 tie against Albert Ramos Vinolas on Tuesday, also made light of the situation.

He retweeted a video of the racket being thrown into the crowd, along with six stunned face emojis.

“Roger, please control your kid,” replied one Federer fan.

“Papa Fed is disappointed,” claimed another, while one jokingly said: “That’s a huge… Maximum!”

Zverev went on to win the match in straight sets against Chardy, 7-6, 7-6.

The German won the first set in a tight 15-13 tie break, while he won the second set tie break 7-3.

He now takes on Andrey Rublev in the Round of 16 on Thursday, with the winner facing a tough match against either Federer or David Goffin in the quarter-finals.

Rublev will be a tough opponent for Zverev, after the Russian knocked out 12th seed Borna Coric in the first round of the tournament.

Meanwhile, Federer is expected to ease past Goffin on Thursday, although the Belgian has still been seeded 13th.

Goffin made it through to the Round of 16 after his opponent, Mikhail Kukushkin retired in the final set of their match.

Elsewhere, there are still a number of big hitters in the Shanghai Masters, with Novak Djokovic taking on John Isner, and Daniil Medvedev facing Vasek Pospisil.
