Roger Federer is a professional tennis player from Switzerland. He began his career in 1998. He made his debut at the Grand Slam tournaments (Roland Garros) in 1999. In 2001, he won his first ATP title by winning the tournament in Milan, and in 2003 he won the Grand Slam tournament (Wimbledon) for the first time. He is the record holder for the number of victories in the Grand Slam tournaments (20). The highest position in the ATP ranking is 1.
Federer will play in an exhibition match, which will break a historical record. 50,000 spectators are expected to play. This is of course amazing. This is not the first time Roger has played in a match of this type. We are waiting for a beautiful game from the legend.
Federer, apparently, due to his age, did not appear so often in various tournaments. For example, in the current season, Roger took part only at the Australian Open.
In Melbourne, the 38-year-old Swiss managed to get to the semifinals, where he lost in three games to Novak Djokovic (6-7, 4-6, 3-6), the future triumph of the competition. It is an acceptable result for Federer, given that he could fly much earlier if Millman or Sandgren were more fortunate.
Rafael Nadal is a professional tennis player from Spain. He began his career in 2001. He made his debut at the Grand Slam tournaments (Wimbledon) in 2003. In 2004, he won his first ATP title by winning the dirt tournament in Sopot, and in 2005 he won the Grand Slam tournament for the first time (Roland Garros). He became the 11th time winner of the French Open, which is the record of the tournament. The highest position in the ATP ranking is 1.
The Swiss will be opposed by his eternal rival on the court, and Rafael Nadal, a friend in life. Nadal is less likely to play in exhibition matches, but he has experience. Rafa, in turn, will show his powerful game. By the way, the court will be orange, everything for Rafa. Of course not the soil, but the color is familiar to Rafa.
Nadal has already played 11 matches in the current season. In 2019, the Spaniard began at the ATP Cup, where he, together with his national team, managed to get to the final of the competition.
Then Nadal performed at the Australian Open, where he, like Federer, stopped a step away from the finals. Tim, who defeated the Spaniard in four sets with a score of 7-6, 7-6, 4-6, 7-6, prevented Rafa from playing the decisive match in the major in Melbourne.
Betting Tips Statistics
- In personal meetings, Nadal leads with a score of 26-16.
- The last time tennis players met on hard in 2017, Federer defeated (6-4, 6-3).
50,000 spectators will be at the match, and they will wait for the spectacle from them. Both will, although not playing at full strength, by itself, but the motivation will be great for them. This game will definitely not end quickly.
It’s not easy to predict the outcome of a friendly match.
Of course, tennis players will primarily play for their own pleasure in order to please local fans, and thoughts about the score will recede into the background. We expect a spectacular three-set match, in which we give preference to Roger. And most importantly – an impressive interesting game from the legends of tennis.
