ESPN on Wednesday aired its piece on Roger Federer's heart-warming meet-up with Beatriz Tinoco, a 17-year-old cancer survivor from Rockville, Md.

Federer flew Beatriz and her family to Wimbledon last month to help fulfill her wish of meeting him. ESPN's cameras followed the two around the All England Club as Federer gave her a tour of the grounds, taught her the secrets of returning his serve and even talked about his famous haircut. The video is great, but do take the time to read Tinoco's own version of the events, which she posted on TwitLonger earlier this month. Her excitement is contagious.
