"I'm really excited to announce a charity tennis match that I will be doing in Zürich on December 21st - Rafa has graciously agreed to play with me! I hope you enjoy this short video announcing the event."

Well we've all seen the Giggle Vid in an attempt to make the announcement to this, and here it is - it's happening!
Giving my left arm to be able to attend it, virtually speaking, of course.
A Fedal's Dream coming true! :) :) :)

It's just... immaculate. Gorgeous. Hilarious! :oops:
Whenever some bozo again asks me why I'm a Fedal fan (or even worse, tries to question my allegiance) in the future, all I have to do is send them the link to the vid. Should be saying enough, no? you know? :p

There's an edited version of the video posted on the credit suisse website.

Just click on "The match for Africa" and then the "Making of" video
Glad to see that they realized that the Giggle Vid was too funny not to let everyone know about it. Great move, guys!

A chance for Fed to heal his H2H?
Did you read the OP? It's an exhibition match, and they don't count towards the head-to-head. Nadal and Federer have played 2 exhibition matches before. The first was in Seoul, South Korea on the 21st November 2006, with Federer winning 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, and the second was in Palma, Majorca on the 2nd May 2007, the famous half-clay, half-grass match, with Nadal winning 7-5, 4-6, 7-6.

Correct. And of course, exhos mean sh*t towards any a H2H (if that means anything at all in the first place). These exhos are just hits-and-giggles, nothing more, nothing less.

I'd so much love to attend this. Rumor has it there'll be a follow-up exho on the 22nd, in Madrid. How nice of both guys to partake in this, so close to Christmas.
Yep, I just heard about this! WOW!!!
Is it just me, thinking that both of them are in fact pulling a long nose to any of their mutual haters, by doing these kind of lovely things together?

GO FEDAL!!!

Roger interview

There will be another performance from you in Switzerland at the "Match for Africa" which is going to take place on December 21st in the Hallenstadion in Zürich. It will be a supermatch for the Federer Foundation against Rafael Nadal. You both tried to announce this event.

One can see which relationship you have - the two big rivals, Federer and Nadal who get along.


Yes, we get along very well. Of course we have a huge rivalry on the court but off court it is the same as with other players. I don't know whether we have a friendship. We seldom have dinner together but our relationship is really good. The funny thing at this promotion we did was that they said "Ok, it only takes 5 minutes. They are here now and have time so we are doing it quickly. It won't be any problem" and I knew that it wouldn't work as we aren't that easy. I collapsed with laughter when I heard his accent, it was so hot in there and the people said you have to say this and that and we both couldn't remember anymore what we had to say even though it had been that simple.
I'm really looking forward that this match happens with the support of Credit Suisse and all other sponsors. It's really a huge organisation of one evening and therefore I waited a few years to do it. I'm really happy that the event is sold out and would like to thank the Swiss TV for their support and promotion. I'm glad that Rafa has time and appears without getting any fee. That's really great of him.

The hall is sold out but we will show the match on SF 2. What can the people expect from you? Will you play with microphones and make jokes or will there be a tough fight?

No, we won't play with microphones. You wouldn't like to hear the groaning in the whole arena for 2 hours. I think the people want to see something serious between us. Of course there will be showelements and other athletes are going to appear but in the end we are going to play each other as good as it gets at the end of the season. We will deliver a good match and it has to be seen who will win. Even though we already made a deal regarding the first set. It will surely be a great evening.

This match will end world hunger and all misery the earth is enduring.

Most importantly, it will end the GOAT discussion.

Whoever wins the most games between the 2 matches is the true GOAT.
