You have to love social media: Where else but Twitter could two of the biggest celebrities on the planet have a brief interaction in 280 characters or less? Roger Federer posted a photo seeking approval from one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars.

Dwayne Johnson, aka “The Rock,” responded, giving Federer the fist bump of approval.

Johnson, who’s made the transition from professional wrestling champ to box-office gold, is currently starring in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

The film just knocked Star Wars: The Last Jedi out of the top spot at the box office. If Federer defends his title at the Australian Open and Rafael Nadal fails to reach the quarterfinals, the world No. 2 will have done the same to his rival in the rankings.
