Between them they have had over 2,000 wins on the ATP Tour, 186 titles and 39 Grand Slams, so it’s no surprise that whenever Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal take to the court, it’s always highly anticipated. But this time, the two titans of tennis are locking horns in unfamiliar territory.
South Africa’s Cape Town stadium will play host to a charity bout on 7th February 2020.
Over 50,000 will pack into the Sub-Saharan setting – but no matter where you are in the world, you’ll be able to watch the live stream of this unique match on Tennis TV.
The legendary duo are meeting to support children’s education in Africa, organised by the Roger Federer Foundation, and they’re both clearly very excited:
“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. 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. It will be a once-in-a lifetime moment for my family and I.” – Roger Federer
“Roger and I have shared so many magical moments on and off the court. Travelling with him to Cape Town and playing for the benefit of children is something I am very excited about. It will be my first time in the region with Roger as a tour guide, so that will be fun.” – Rafael Nadal
Tennis TV is excited to have full live streaming from the sixth edition of this event.
