Roger Federer to Klay Thompson: ‘Sounds Like a Challenge to Me'

Programming note: Watch the Warriors' final preseason game tonight at 7:30pm on NBC Sports Bay Area.

Prior to the Warriors' second preseason game in China, Roger Federer visited with the team.

"Federer said his ping pong  game is pretty nice and Klay said, ‘So is mine.' Felt like there was a little bit of a challenge there (laughter)."

Federer got wind of this and took to Twitter on Friday morning:

We'll let you know if Federer and Klay ever face off in ping pong...
