The stakes certainly won't be nearly as high as at a Grand Slam or even their recent meeting in the ATP Championship in London, but tennis fans can see Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer take swings at one another the next two days on ESPN properties.
The top two tennis players in the world will play a pair of best-of-three-set exhibitions on Dec. 21 and 22, benefiting each's charitable foundation.
The Dec. 21 meeting will be held at Hallenstadion Arena in Zurich, Switzerland at 2:30 p.m. (ET), benefitting the Roger Federer Foundation. The following day they will meet again at La Caja Magica in Madrid, Spain, at 1 p.m. with proceeds earmarked for the Fundacion Rafael Nadal.
ESPN2, ESPN2 HD and ESPN3.com will cover the exhibitions, with Chris Fowler and Patrick McEnroe providing the call.
ESPN International will distribute the telecasts on ESPN platforms in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and the Pacific Rim.
