I’m a huge fan of @rogerfederer, so the chance to play tennis with him is a dream come true. It's also a great opportunity to shine a light on the terrific philanthropic work that he and his family are doing in southern Africa. I’ll get to play alongside him again tonight in the #MatchForAfrica (which you can watch live on Facebook).
The charity tennis match was hosted by the Roger Federer Foundation, the 6th edition, the first to be played in Africa. Proceeds from the event will be used to support the education of children in Southern Africa
‘This Match in Africa is a dream come true. I will play in my mother’s home country against my toughest rival and friend Rafa Nadal,’‘ Federer said ahead of the match.
‘We share not only the love for tennis but also for the good cause of giving children a better start in education and in life. I feel privileged to have other leading philanthropists on board to entertain millions of people in the stadium and on TV.’
