Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal may collide in just a few days in the Cincinnati semifinals, but the two tennis greats left the rivalry on the court to share a few fun, comedic moments during this taping of a promo during the Western and South Financial Group Masters.
What brought about this laughter? From the video, this exchange:
“So Rafa, you know what you are going to give me for Christmas yet?” Federer asks Nadal.
Replies Nadal, “You know what? I gonna play an exhibition.” And then the hilarity ensues.
“His English is the best, how can you not laugh,” jokes Federer.
Based on the conversation the promo is for an exhibition Nadal will play against Federer in Switzerland this Christmas. The proceeds will go toward Federer’s foundation.
The video was to be “strictly confidential” but someone “leaked it” so these videos may get taken down.
Both guys have difficult matches today in Cincinnati. Federer plays friend Phillip Kohlschreiber in a match that follows Nadal’s contest with Julien Benneteau.
After a week ranked No. 3, Federer is back to No. 2 this week but could drop again after his 1,000 points from his 2009 Cincinnati title fall off the rankings calendar.
