Match for Africa - a great success!

22.12.2010 | Foundation, Starseite 3

Roger and Rafael Nadal came together in Zurich today for the 'Match for Africa'. The world numbers one and two competed in front of a great crowd in the Hallenstadion in order to raise money for the Roger Federer Foundation.

The two friends showed most entertaining tennis, earning applause and Mexican waves. Roger lost the opening set, but eventually defeated Rafa in his home-match 4-6, 6-3, 6-3.

A lot more important than the result on court is the fact that with the event a total of 2.5 million Swiss Francs were generated! The money will be used for education projects in Africa supported by the Roger Federer Foundation.

Roger experienced a day full of different activities. He picked up Rafa at the airport in the morning and personally drove him into town. After having lunch together, they made their way to a kids-clinic, various activities with sponsors and eventually the big finale. Tomorrow Rafa will be the host as they will be meeting again the same way in Madrid, this time to support Rafa Nadal's Foundation.
