This is about the only way they will ever play each other.

When is the last time they've played each other (in an non-exo)?

Madrid final.


Anyway, I'm desperate to go! Respect to both of them as well especially since it's in the middle of the holiday/training offseason.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Couldn't they have gotten two better players?

First time they had met since the same tournament in 2009. And Rafa vs. Rog (or anyone else for that matter) on the clay isn't exactly a nail biter.

Looks like they probably won't meet again until AO at the earliest and probably not until 2011 clay season (unless Nadal surprises us at the US Open. Because we all know neither Nadal nor Federer will be making the finals of the TMC or the remaining 1000 events).

You don't have to pay attention to the match if you don't want to but for people in the German speaking countries such a match, even if it is only a showmatch, is something special as you probably will never get to see Roger and Rafa playing together at a tournament in Germany, Switzerland or Austria.

It is a nice gesture that they take their time so shortly before Christmas to do this event.

I am just reading a comment in the Swiss newspaper BLICK which says that apparently there will be a match for Rafa's foundation on December 22nd in Madrid...

Re: Match for Africa (Showmatch between Roger and Rafa) on December 21st in Zürich

Wether you like them or not this is definitely the best tennis match you can see in almost the last 10 years.
It's great to see that despite all the rumours, fan clashes and other bullsh*t both guys simply respect each other as tennis players and more important, as person.
The gesture of playing each other for such a cause only makes their legacy even bigger

Carlos, Tommy, Rafa, Feli, Nicolás, Marcel
Rainer, Radek, Benji Becker, Jarkko Nieminen, Melzer, Nalbandián, Tursunov, Starace, Djokovic, Youzhny
