Roger Federer says he thinks he is over his Australian Open injury ahead of his Match for Africa charity clash with Rafael Nadal.

He played two matches injured at the Australian Open last week.

“You know how it is. Life on tour sometimes is what it is,” said Federer.  “I couldn’t be more excited now that it’s actually really happening. I hope I’m going to be really fine to play. I believe I am, but we’ll see.

“Also, that Rafa is willing to do it is exciting, of course, to say the least. I know my parents are very happy, very proud, as well. I’m sure it’s going to be very, very special for me on many levels to play there.”

Federer is set to face Nadal on Friday in South Africa.
