Roger Federer Accepts Andy Murray’s Invite To Play In Glasgow Charity Event

Roger Federer Accepts Andy Murray’s Invite To Play In Glasgow Charity Event

Tennis superstar Roger Federer will play in Scotland for the first time after accepting an invitation from Andy Murray.

The Swiss legend will take part in the Andy Murray Live charity event at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow in November.

It comes after the 35-year-old ace’s shock win at the Australian Open in January – the 18th Grand Slam title of his glistening career.

And Murray, who suffered an early exit in Melbourne, will be honoured to host the game’s greatest ever player.

The world number one said: “He’s just extremely popular. He’s one of the best players that’s ever played the game.

“It’s not just how much he’s won, but the way he plays and carries himself.”

Federer accepted Murray’s invite after the Scot agreed to feature at the Swiss star’s own event in April.

Murray added: “I saw a little video where he was wearing a kilt when he was announcing that I was going to play in his event over in Switzerland.

“He’s returning the favour in November. It’s really good he’s doing it.

“He said a few years ago he wants to go to places he’s not been. It’s great.”

Murray’s event in Glasgow raised £300,000 which will be donated to children’s charities.
