“This Match in Africa is a dream come true,” said Federer.”I will play in my mother’s home country against my toughest rival and friend Rafa Nadal.”
Nadal added: “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 – that will be fun.”
