Roger Federer played art critic in Indian Wells, evaluating the portraits of himself that a group of local children created.

As expected, everyone was thrilled to see him when he walked into the press room. (Turn the sound up to hear the screams.) 

In his reviews of the paintings, Federer was honest, but encouraging. "The racquet, it turned out a little small," he told a girl named Sasha. "But that's OK.  You're only gonna get better. This is already so good."

Federer also admitted his twin girls are better than him at drawing, while he's still got an edge over his three-year-old sons. 

The group then went outside the stadium to see the unveiling of the mural commemorating Federer's 2017 title win. It's safe to say Federer's reaction was the best. 

Federer is into the fourth round of the tournamet after easing past Filip Krajinovic on Monday.
