The match in Africa : Roger Vs Rafa

Hitman

G.O.A.T.
Well, they had to make up for that IW walkover from last year. Rafa being a class act. :D (y)


Was fun to watch these two, it is clear to me, that while not best friends, they are indeed good friends and like being in each other's company.

Nadal lost a point to a ballgirl. Legacy tainted. Tainted! Wait, it was just a ballkid, not Nadal.

Feels like they've joined tennis veteran's Invesco Series QQQ already. The fact that no nextgen can beat them on a big stage is just scandalous.

I was there last night - was surreal. I know it was an exho but they hit a few proper shots here and there. Rafa served a few 190km+ serves too.

There was a passage of play when they hit a few slices BH to each other - was amazing to see the low bounce in real life.

Stadium was buzzing - when Kolisi came out to hand over the jersey everyone went insane. Record breaking crowd at a tennis game too

Only downside - they didn’t sign any balls for the kids at the end

1) Federer and Nadal has good relationship. They've played many such exhibitions and it's happening for many years now.

Federer and Djokovic having exhibition match. No chance.

Nadal and Djokovic. Yes

2) Federer is seeing tennis from a bigger perspective. Going to places where people haven't seen him before. Making them happy. And all for a good cause.

Life isn't just wining the slams and masters you know

3) He faked injury to discredit another loss to Nole.

No match thread ? I'm surprised.
How in the world can anyone get excited about this farce?
It would be better for tennis if these two played at real intensity in a challenge match.
Compare and contrast to Laver/Connors challenge match.
