In an interview the CEO of the Roger Federer Foundation Janine Handel spoke about the upcoming Match for Africa 6 between the Swiss and Rafael Nadal that will take place on February 7 2020 in Cape Town, South Africa. Handel said: “This match in Cape Town means the world to Roger.
It is a real dream come true, playing in the country of his mother’s home and bringing high-class tennis to Africa. That was really his motivation. That’s why he picked Rafael Nadal, his lifetime rival but also friend, sharing the cause for helping the less privileged and empowering children.”
