Swiss tennis fans in Zurich are in for a pre-Christmas treat as their two best players Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka are joining forces for an Exhibition night on behalf of the Roger Federer Foundation. 

The pair, who are the most successful players of all time will be playing for The Match for Africa 2, following on from the first successful exhibition night held four years ago, to sell-out crowds, in Hallenstadion in Zurich.

"I'm looking forward to playing Stan in Zurich in late December. It will be a fantastic evening and I hope we can meet a large number of our fans and play a great match,” said Federer, as the planned night has already received a warm response from Swiss fans.

Wawrinka will be making his first appearance, after scooping his first Grand Slam title in Australia and backing that up later in the year with his first Masters title in Monte Carlo, as well a being part of the Davis Cup team that will contest the final later this year against France.

"It's always a pleasure to be on the court with Roger,” he said, “and I'm looking forward to being part of a great night of tennis for an even more important cause. Helping children in need is something that means a lot to me."

As well as the top flight tennis on show, there will be a group of nine performers from Southern Africa and a Swiss performer, who not only sings, but plays tennis joining the musical part of the night.

The Match for Africa 2 will take place on Sunday 21 December.
