Jay Chou “felt like an outsider” meeting tennis star Roger Federer

Tennis isn’t exactly the multi-hyphenate’s forte.


Looks like even Jay Chou gets jealous from time to time.

The multi-hyphenate and his wife, Taiwanese model-actress Hannah Quinlivan attended the Australian Open tennis tournament yesterday (January 21), where they had the opportunity to hang out with tennis star Roger Federer before his match. 

Posting a number of pictures from their locker-room encounter on Instagram, Jay couldn’t help but to poke fun at himself, drawing attention to a particular picture where he was playing second fiddle to Roger, with the tennis star engaged in animated conversation with Hannah.

“When Hannah and Roger were talking about tennis, I felt like an outsider,”  he laughed in his caption, adding “ I’ll have to start playing tennis from now on.”

Fans of Jay then began leaving comments poking fun at the singer, with one asking “ Are you jealous of Roger now?” Another fan also gave Jay an idea for a possible conversation starter with Roger, suggesting for Jay to “try chatting about basketball with Roger”, since Jay is known for his love of the sport.

This is not the couple’s first time rubbing shoulders with the tennis star. Last October, the couple had attended the Shanghai Masters tennis tournament, where they met Roger after one of his games.
