Roger Federer jokes he had to “force” Rafael Nadal to give him a date for their South African charity match after a two-year wait:
It took me two years to find a date, but we have it.
I was trying to be as little as possible annoying to the guy as I could have been. But still I had to force the issue at some stage. It was like, Rafa, please…
Of course, we hope to have a big crowd. My dream has been reached to have a match there with Rafa in that country.
