Roger Federer will face Alexander Zverev in front of 40,000 people at Plaza Mexico on November 23. On Tuesday Mextenis will hold a press conference to make an official announcement and give more details about the 20-time Grand Slam winner's appearance to the country.
The event was called “The greatest match”. The Americans Bob and Mike Bryan will also face the Mexico's Santiago González and Miguel Ángel Reyes Varela in a doubles match. Gonzalez said: "It will be incredible, my exhibition with Bryans is not official yet and in the next days as tickets go on sale we will learn more about it.
Regardless who is here it will be a very important event, one of the most important ever in history (in the country), I think that playing in front of 40,000 people is something Federer never did it." Meanwhile there are fewer and fewer tickets left for the exhibition between Federer and del Potro on November 20.
Now there are more details about the Vips sections. The VIP Package includes attending a tennis clinic with players, having cocktail, watching the matches from amazing places. But the most exclusive service is a dinner attended by Federer himself which is US$1.500 worth overall.
Meanwhile Alex De Minaur's coach spoke about the difficulties in facing Rafael Nadal: "You play tennis for those matches. It's difficult to think that Alex can hurt Rafa. You have to enjoy it. Playing on the Central Court is much better because it's a unique experience that you do not know if it will happen again."
