In one of the most incredible, particular and dramatic seasons ever, the great tennis stars like Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams still managed to shine, for one reason or another. Probably not even Roger Federer expected such a great success for the Match for Africa 6 charity event which took place on 7 February 2020, starring Federer himself along with Rafael Nadal, Bill Gates and Trevor Noha.
Cape Town, on the other hand, responded as best it could to the event that was aimed at raising funds for African children. The crowd present was 51,954 people. Incredible. The Swiss champion wanted to thank everyone with a message: "What an unforgettable night: we raised 3.5 million dollars for vulnerable children in the region, reached a world record with over 51,000 spectators during a tennis match and we had a lot of fun.
Match for Africa six was a unique moment in my life. Thanks to the three inspiring philanthropists Rafa, Bill and Trevor for sharing this beautiful moment. Thanks to the hundreds of people who organized this meeting for Africa and created a high-class event.
But most of all, thank you South Africa, thank you Cape Town for your great participation and for making a difference to those most in need."
