Madrid, December 22nd, 2010 – After yesterday’s match in Zurich, Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer have landed in Madrid where they plan to continue their charity work. Both players are very familiar with the ‘Caja Mágica’; the same stage where they have played together twice in the past but where today they will face each other with a different objective in mind: To raise funds in favour of the Rafa Nadal Foundation and therefore help children with disabilities as well as those who come from disadvantaged communities. “To me, today is a very special day. I am lucky enough to be able to do what I love to do which is to play tennis, but at the same time, through my Foundation, I get the opportunity to help hundreds of kids who are not as lucky.”
