Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal joke with kids at Cape Town Stadium ahead of big match

In the sixth Match for Africa, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will play against each other in front of the record-breaking crowd of 50,000 at the Cape Town Stadium later on Friday, setting the world record and writing history yet again.

Eight years after their first Match for Africa clash in Zurich, two great rivals will compete in South Africa, with a chance for Roger to perform in front of the crowd in his mother's land for the first time. Besides Roger and Rafa, Bill Gates and Trevor Noah will join the doubles match, with Gates and Federer taking upon Nadal and Noah in what should be the most entertaining encounter of the day.

After that, Roger Federer will embrace his first singles match in his mother's land, never playing in South Africa before and choosing a perfect rival for that in Rafael Nadal who was more than willing to come and share the beautiful moment with his old rival, almost 16 years since their first clash on the Tour.
