Zurich, 30 September 2014
– On Sunday, 21 December 2014, the two most successful Swiss tennis players of all time, Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka, will be playing not for titles and prize money, but for a good cause in «The Match for Africa 2». The first such Exhibition Night held four years ago on behalf of the Roger Federer Foundation delighted Swiss tennis fans in the sold-out 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», commented Roger Federer on the positive response to the second event. Stan Wawrinka is taking part in «The Match for Africa 2» for the first time. Following his Grand Slam success in the Australian Open and wins in Chennai and Monte Carlo, the star from the French-speaking part of Switzerland is one of the world's top players with an ever-increasingcommunity of fans. «It's always a pleasure to be on the court with Roger 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», said the current World No. 4 about the duel with Roger Federer in the Hallenstadion.

Setting the scene for the Exhibition Night in aid of the Roger Federer Foundation will be a group of nine performers from southern Africa and a young Swiss woman who not only plays outstanding tennis but also has an amazing voice. Tickets in various price classes will be on sale from Ticketcorner as of 1 October 2014. Ticket sale will start at 8 am. Prices range from lower-priced regular seats for CHF 90 up to CHF 210 for first category seats on the main stand.
