Good friends Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal continued their tradition of playing tennis together in unusual settings.
Last year the two tennis greats enjoyed a hit on the water. This year they took their talents to the fire, playing tennis on a court lit by candlelight. How romantic for the two of them!
“It was a very special atmosphere playing in the amphitheatre with all the candles lit up,” Federer said. “It was a mixture of dramatic, romantic and Arabian Nights. It felt very much alive. I really enjoyed it.”
The special launch took place Katara at the amphitheatre in Doha, surrounded by more than 4000 burning Roman candles.
Federer and Nadal will both make their 2012 debut tomorrow. Federer plays Nikolay Davydenko in a rematch of their 2011 final won by the Swiss. Nadal takes on the tough German Philipp Kohlschreiber.
Happy New Year everyone!
