Roger Federer may have hung up his tennis racquet, but he is still an athlete eager to try other sports and finally has the time to do so.

His latest video shows him on the golf course. He is not the first tennis player to take up golf. Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Carlos Alcaraz have also been spotted on the links.

Federer's Instagram video elicited many comments from professional athletes of all walks of life; some were very entertaining.

Carlos Alcaraz openly wondered if there was anything RF could not do. Retired tennis player turned golfer Mardy Fish said he finally figured out how to win back the money he lost to Federer from their tennis matches. Andy Murray joked that he needed to yell "fore" to the right based on what he saw from the video. Canadian tennis player Genie Bouchard marveled at the perfection of his swing and Caroline Wozniacki enjoyed the sound of the ball coming off his club. Rafael Nadal's Academy posted his signature phrase "Vamos!" John Isner said what all of us were thinking; of course, he would have a golden swing.

LPGA World No. 1 golfer Nelly Korda offered to be his coach should he want one while her fellow LPGA professional sister Jessica Korda did not seem surprised how smooth his swing was. Their brother, American tennis player Sebastian Korda admired his form and shared a one-word response "damn." Within the Instagram thread, someone else asked Sebastian Korda if Roger Federer could beat his sister Nelly.

Olympic and World Champion skiier LIndsey Vonn also admired Roger's form. It was difficult not to notice how fluid his motion was similar to how rhythmic and gracegul he was on the tennis court.

LIV Golf admired his form, and the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells encouraged him to try out some of the courses near the location where he won five titles.

Others want to see Roger and Rafa hit the links together. That would be ratings gold, and perhaps the PGA is already pondering that possibility for a future Match exhibition that has previously featured professional football and basketball players.

Federer's retirement is not all about fun and games. He is slated to speak at Dartmouth's graduation on June 9, and his Amazon Prime documentary is dropping on June 20.
