Unidos por la Infancia: Federer vs. Nadal at La Caja Magica in Madrid, Spain

Patrick McEnroe and Chris Fowler (bah humbug!) will be calling the matches.
Patrick McEnroe on Rog v Rafa:
“These are called exhibitions, whenever these two guys square off, the competitive juices start flowing and the crowds and spectacle will be terrific as each plays in his own country,” McEnroe continued. “Certainly no two other players in the world could pull this off.”
“I always enjoy playing Rafa on the big stages and it is especially exciting when we can do it to help raise monies for our foundations. I am sure that the fans in Zurich, Madrid and those around the world who will catch it on TV or the internet will see some exciting tennis for a great cause.”
“Playing Roger is always something special for me. I think it is also special for the fans since we played great matches all these years. But to play for a special cause as we are in Switzerland and Spain in December makes it even more special since we are helping also other people”
