WATCH Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal Can’t Wait for Cape Town Tennis Match

Watch below as tennis stars Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal (number one in the world) speak about how they can’t wait to play at the Match in Africa in Cape Town, South Africa, on 7 February.

Federer, whose mother is a South African expat, said on Facebook: “I am so excited to be playing my first match in South Africa with my longtime rival @rafaelnadal . It will be a match of a lifetime🇿🇦🏟for my foundation! @rogerfederer.foundation #worldrecord #matchinafrica #southafrica #bucketlist”

This is the first time the two will face each other on African soil.

In a video posted on social media, the two tennis champions reminisce on the first time they tried to record a video about the Match in Africa together. It went viral and was hilarious as they battled to not laugh. The video this week has its moments too – particularly at the very end when Federer says: “We can’t see you…”
