I am happy to announce that after the successful exhibition for my foundation in December 2010, Stan Wawrinka has agreed to play me in The Match for Africa 2 on December 21st in Zurich at the Hallenstadion arena. It’s going to be an amazing night! I hope to see you there.
On winning DC and its overall importance in the discussion for all-time greats

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
I'm trying to work out how Roger's going to fit training in around this. He has DC 21st-23rd November, then presumably he'll need a holiday, then a short training break (I assume in Dubai), then this exho, for which he'll have to be back in Switzerland, then Christmas, then straight off to Brisbane, then AO ... ???
I'm surprised he's doing this. It's been a long year for him.

I don't know how much the tickets will cost. I could preorder a ticket via Roger's fanclub and I paid 185 Swiss Franks (about 150 Euros...) for category 2.
I have no idea if this is a special offer for the club.
