Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal ready for the Cape Town clash!

Roger Federer is training for the Match for Africa 6, in which he will challenge his friend / rival on the Cape Town Stadium: "We chose this orange color for Rafa, but it is a very fast surface" said Roger talking about the playing surface.

It will be an incredible charity event tonight in Cape Town, South Africa. Roger and Rafa will raise funds for the Roger Federer Foundation's projects to support the education of African children. The prediction of a new crowd record for a tennis match could exceed that set by the performance between Federer and Zverev in Mexico City in front of over 42,000 people.

Tickets sold out quickly in ten minutes as soon as they went on sale. Federer and Nadal also competed in 2010 for the Match for Africa, in Zurich and Madrid, but this year, in a court that can host up to 50,000 people, they managed to write a new crowd record for a single tennis match, another achievement of their amazing careers.

In the afternoon, before the match, children will have the Learning Through Play session with Roger and Rafa, followed by an open practice session and a press conference on the court that has been built on the Cape Town Stadium pitch.

Certainly a very beautiful moment for the children, but also for Roger and Rafa.
