Roger Federer can’t stop! The Swiss sensation has just ended his campaign at the Australian Open to head to Cape Town where he will try to break the record of attendance for a tennis match with the help of his dear friends Rafael Nadal and Bill Gates. As soon as he landed in Johannesburg, the Swiss sensation went quickly to Namibia to meet the partners of his foundation and he had the pleasure to meet President Geingob.
After his trip to Namibia, Roger went straight to Cape Town where he met the journalists at the Airport. This is going to be a rather busy and emotional weekend for him.
Many thanks to President Geingob and our Namibian partners for hosting me.
It was such an inspirational visit. I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of a vibrant movement to enhance school readiness in the country.
