Good News for Nadal vs Federer Fans, Great News for Children of Africa

Rafa and Roger have played just three times in the last two years.

So given that deficit in Nadal vs Federer encounters, what great news to hear that they will be playing twice in consecutive days before the end of the year!

The occasion is an event organised by Nadal’s “Rafa Nadal Foundation”, which was born in November 2007 out of the desire to create opportunities for children with disabilities and those coming from underprivileged surroundings.

From Rafa’s website:

This is the match dreamed by all tennis tournaments in the world; a final between Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer. Together, they have played some of the most incredible matches in history and on December 22nd -from 6:30pm- at the “Caja Mágica”, Madrid will have the chance to stage a memorable meeting between the two legends in which they will be playing for a lot more than just a victory.

Organized by the Rafa Nadal Foundation, this friendly match aims to raise funds in benefit of children with disabilities and youngsters coming from underprivileged communities. After all, they are the force driving the Rafa Nadal Foundation and they will emerge as the only winners of this event.

“This will be the first time the Foundation will introduce an event of this magnitude to so many people and we really hope we can count with their support in all of our projects. This event is particularly special to me because I count with Rogers’ support. We are friends and we are both very committed to solidarity”, said Rada Nadal, Founder and patron of the Foundation.

“I am very excited to come to Madrid on Dec 22 to support Rafa’s foundation. Both the Zurich event the night before and this event will be a lot of fun. Playing against such a great player like Rafa, while at the same time raising monies for those less fortunate, makes it even more special.”, added Roger Federer.

If Stockholm Open – Federer vs Ljubicic

UPDATE – Match over, Federer won 7-6, 6-2

Roger Federer plays Ivan Ljubicic on Saturday’s semifinal at the Stockholm open.

Having seen off his countryman Wawrinka (2-6, 6-3, 6-2), he now faces a player that has beaten him three times in the past.

Those three losses however date back to the early 2000′s – the last came in 2003 on carpet, so they don’t count for much against the Fed’s nine consecutive wins since then (and 12 in total).

If Stockholm Open – Federer vs Wawrinka

Stanislas Wawrinka - Link to ATP Profile

UPDATE: Match over, Federer won 2-6, 6-3, 6-2

Roger Federer will face his friend and compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka for a place in the semifinals, but do not expect this to be a gentle hit between mates.

Although Wawrinka has always been in the shadow of his immortal countryman, he has managed to beat him in the past (once, last year, on clay) against five victories for Federer. Still, Federer is playing well and we would expect him to go through.
