Another Federer-Nadal exho coming up

Tennis legends to face off in Malaysia
21st July 2008

Tennis fans will flock to Malaysia in November, where Roger Federer will face off against Rafael Nadal and Bjorn Borg will clash with John McEnroe in exhibition matches, organisers said.

The four have confirmed their participation in the "Countdown of Champions", set for November 18 at the Bukit Jalil stadium south of Kuala Lumpur, executive secretary of the Lawn Tennis Association of Malaysia Jaafar Abu told AFP.

"Last year, we had Pete Sampras and Richard Gasquet along with Nadal and Federer," he said.

"It has become something of a tradition for us to have a celebrity exhibition match every November."

World No.1 Federer will get another chance to avenge his losses in this year's French Open and Wimbledon finals to world No.2 Nadal.

Borg and McEnroe will give fans a chance to walk down memory lane, remembering the highs and lows of their bitter rivalry, typified by the 1980 Wimbledon final won by Borg in five gruelling sets.

The 49-year-old McEnroe, who won seven grand slam singles titles during his storied career, now works as a television commentator.

Borg, 52, captured 11 grand slam singles titles - six at Roland Garros and five consecutive titles at Wimbledon.

Not another battle of the surfaces?

Oh that's right, Rafa would have to be on both sides of the court if we're doing the King Of Clay vs. the King Of Grass

Re: Another Federer-Nadal exho coming up

Having such good memories of Raf's and Rog's exho match there in 2006, I'm looking forward to see this one.

That said, I still think these kind of things are stupid.

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

You're trolling, but I'm sure you realize that.

Roger Federer has won Wimbledon a total of five times.

Once again, you're trolling. Back under the bridge, otherwise you'll be forced to eat non-kosher foods for supper.

Didn't Sampras win Wimbledon 7 times? Shouldn't Nadal play him then?

You're trolling, are you aware of that ?

To think, the remedy for this type of behavior could have been more hugs as a child or recreational activities such as taking part in organized sporting events for children of the ages of 13 and under, if only you had won a few trophies -- even for coming in 2nd or 3rd place, you'd be a lot less likely to live vicariously through a Spanish boy that hasn't any clue what your name is.

Get your confidence up, Adam, put the keyboard in your closet and slowly step away from it.

Adam, I'm sure the criminal ATP does everything that Roger finally gets a victory against Rafa this year - at may it be just at a exho This means: The faster the court the better

They could do King of Clay & Grass vs Duke of Clay & Grass.

Re: Another Federer-Nadal exho coming up

Hopefully Fed knows what he is doing, last year he played three different exho's against Sampras in Asia right after the TMC having to travel thousands of miles by plane for each match in Bird-flu and SARS infested regions which probably had a lot to do with his "mono". At the end he was so exhausted that in fact lost to Sampras in straight sets.

That's why you spend your life making cheap thinly veiled racist comments on a tennis message board
