Even Bill Gates posted the video via his Twitter account. He thanked the Roger Federer Foundation for allowing him to work for the good cause of helping children.

What Was So Special About The Charity Match Played By Roger Federer? 

It was less of a match and more of a spectacle. The event featured a record-breaking crowd of 51,954. In fact, the previous record was also held by a Roger Federer exhibition match. This was when Federer beat Alexander Zverev in Mexico City in front of 42,517 fans.

However, the match had a much deeper purpose. The proceeds for the match were to go towards the Roger Federer Foundation. In fact, the money would be used to aid the education of South African children.

How much money did the match raise, you ask? It went on to raise $3.5 million against the originally set target of 3 million.
