It was a memorable Australian Open final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on January 29, a match that no tennis fan will forget anytime soon.
While the world gushed over Federer’s record 18th grand slam title and Nadal’s amazing comeback performance, Tennis fans in Pakistan were left upset.
One of these tennis fans was former Pakistani cricketer Ramiz Raja, who took to Twitter to express his frustration that Pakistan TV broadcasters were not showing the Tennis match in the country.
Unbelievable: We are such a sports unfriendly nation that no channel showed the iconic Federer Nadal Australian Open final..shameful ..

While Raja might just have been expressing his frustration and nothing more, he would surely not have expected to get trolled for it.
Here are few of the comments that he got on his tweets,
