If a guy is looking for a little inspiration or advice on how to win a sixth title, who’s a better expert than His Airness?

Roger Federer, who has five U.S. Open singles titles, took a moment to visit with Michael Jordan, who won six NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls, on Monday at the Open. Federer launched his Instagram account with a photo of the duo, writing: “It was an honor meeting one of my childhood idols today #MJ. Also, this is my first @Instagram. How’d I do?”

Federer, the No. 2 seed, will begin pursuit of his 18th Grand Slam title with a match Tuesday night against Marinko Matosevic.
