Federer Beats Nadal In Exhibition Game


Roger Federer beat Rafael Nadal 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 yesterday to open a two-match exhibition series for charity between the world’s top ranked tennis players.

Federer sealed victory on Nadal’s serve with a backhand crosscourt return in front of 10,000 fans at sold-out Hallenstadion indoor arena. This was the first  time they have played each other in Federer’s home country.

The match in Switzerland raised money for Federer’s foundation, which backs educational work with children in Africa. It currently supports projects in  Ethiopia, Malawi, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and his mother’s native South Africa.
