After a very successful event, Match in Africa 2020, Roger Federer announced how much money they managed to raise to help the children in Africa.
There is no doubt that the 2020 Match in Africa was a huge success. Except for seeing a beautiful game of tennis, having a lot of fun and breaking a world record, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal also managed to raise a lot of money. They collected more than $3 million as a donation for children in Africa.
“It was such a privilege to be here tonight. Of course, we want to try to play the best tennis we can, that’s what we’re world-famous for. It was an absolute pleasure to share the court with Rafa again, but the first time here in beautiful Cape Town in South Africa means so much more. It really is very, very special on so many levels,” Federer said on court after the match, “This is so much more than just tennis. I really hope we can do it again. I hope Rafa can do it again one day, come back to this beautiful country. I’m so proud to have roots down here and thank you very much for coming everybody. It really is so, so special.”
“We tried our best as always. The energy has been just fantastic. I think we can’t describe our feelings. It’s a lifetime experience playing here in front of such an amazing crowd, such an amazing stadium. It’s not my first time playing here in South Africa, I played when I was a kid. But it’s my first time as a professional player,” Nadal said. “I just can say well-done to Roger and all his family, all his team, because the organisation of this event has been just fantastic. It has been a big pleasure for me to be part of it.”
