Tennis stars Rodger Federer and Rafel Nadal have been interacting with excited fans at the Grand Parade in Cape Town. They will face-off in a charity match which thousands of supporters are expected to attend at Cape Town Stadium on Friday evening.

The match will raise money to support children’s’ education on the African continent.

Some excited fans have started making their way to the venue with many donning t-shirts of their favourite player. Fans hope to meet Federer in person.

“I can’t wait to see him and I hope to meet him in person. He is just a wonderful person, especially the way he is after matches; the way he greats his opponent and I totally watch until the end until he is making the signature and gives his waves.”
