Roger Federer and kids

Roger Federer and his Foundation have helped many children in Africa in recent years. The Swiss champion has just played a charity exhibition with Rafael Nadal in Cape Town, where they raised $3.5 million. “That came from me.

I always knew I wanted to do something with children. And not just a doctorate, but something with a direct encounter. In addition, physical suffering just affects me too much. So I decided on education. Together with health, it is everything in life” – said Roger.

Federer also revealed that he was not a very good student himself: “Mediocre, I would say. But I always tried really hard. Sometimes I just got a little tired from sitting and listening. Then they had to use all their motivational tricks to keep me going”.

Roger began his 2020 season at the 2020 Australian Open. He reached the semifinals after straight sets wins over Steve Johnson and Filip Krajinović, a five-set win over John Millman, four-set win over Márton Fucsovics, and a five-set win over Tennys Sandgren.

Federer then lost his semifinal match to Djokovic in straight sets, having sustained a groin injury earlier in the tournament. The 20-time Grand Slam champion will try to defend his title in Dubai later this month before the Masters 1000 of Indian Wells and Miami. His manager Tony Godsick has confirmed that he will play Roland Garros as the only tournament on red clay.

The charity exhibition “Match in Africa” in Cape Town delivered yet another record to Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal, who played an exhibition match in front of 51,954 spectators. The record of 42,517 payers in Mexico City last November was beaten, with Roger always the protagonist.

The match was organized by the Roger Federer Foundation: the proceeds, of approximately 3.5 million dollars, will be used to finance school projects in the poorest areas of Africa. Roger is very close to these countries, being his mother Lynette originally from South Africa.

In a recent interview, the Swiss Maestro discussed the topic of tourism in South Africa: “Above all, you have to take your time. I would not only travel to South Africa, but also try to visit countries like Namibia, Botswana or Zimbabwe.

Sure, you can’t miss a safari, it’s unique. And Cape Town has long been a global hotspot. We also want to visit the vineyards. Incidentally, I’ve never been to Table Mountain . It is a must, so I keep it as a good reason to come back here soon” – Federer explained.

At the Australian Open in Melbourne, he reached the semifinals after straight sets wins over Steve Johnson and Filip Krajinović, a five-set win over John Millman, four-set win over Márton Fucsovics, and a five-set win over Tennys Sandgren.

Federer then lost his semifinal match to Djokovic in straight sets. The 38-year-old is still ranked third in the world behind Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, reaching the latter stages at notable events and fighting for Masters 1000 and Major titles despite being among the oldest active players left on the Tour.
