Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer is clearing having a great time in his mom’s home country, South Africa. (Federer’s mother Lynette is an SA expat from Kempton Park.)
Federer has posted a couple of ‘holiday snap’ type photos, taken in Cape Town today… as he prepares for tonight’s big match against the World’s Number One player, Rafael Nadal.
Nadal happens to also be a good friend, and the two will be playing for charity – raising money for education initiatives run by the Roger Federer Foundation in South Africa and other parts of Africa.
The two sportsmen posted a video in front of Table Mountain earlier on Friday:

Federer reported he woke up in happy mood today:
He will be hoping to break a world record this evening at the stadium in Cape Town with the most spectators at any tennis match ever.
Federer and Nadal will be joined in a celebrity doubles match before the big match, alongside South African comedian Trevor Noah (partnered with Nadal) and Microsoft legend Bill Gates.
