Roger Federer Hoping To Play In South America Later This Year
Roger Federer is keen to make first trip to South America as a tennis legend. Federer, who has never played a pro tournament in South America, is hopeful that he and organizers can pull together to set up a mini-exhibition tour on the continent for his fans at the end of season.
“We’re trying to put a nice tour together in South America at the end of the year,” Federer said Tuesday. “Still looking at which countries and which players actually at this point. Some are sort of confirmed, I think, and some are not, so still some talks going on there.
So I hope I can play sort of as many as I can. There are many countries I haven’t been yet in South America except for the juniors back in the day. I hope we can make it a special down there.”
Sounds promising for Federer fans in South America.
After beating his second straight 30+ lefty today, the second-seeded Federer plays Russian Mikhail Youzhny Thursday in the Dubai Duty Free quarterfinals.
Top seed Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray were also winners on Wednesday.
