Murray To Play Federer in Glamour Tie



TENNIS world number one Andy Murray will take part in a tournament aimed at raising funds for several charities.

This will be the first time Roger Federer plays in Scotland with Tim Henman, Jamie Murray and Mansour Bahrami also joining the line-up.

When asked to give the 18-time Grand Slam champion some advice, Murray warned ‘don’t try the fried Mars bars’.

He said; “I tried one of them for the first time last year and it was horrific. Stay away from them.”

The Andy Murray Live event will take place on November 7th in the SSE Hydro with Unicef and a local charity receiving the proceeds.

Last year the tournament raised over £300,000 for Unicef and the Glasgow charity Young People’s Futures.

Andy Murray noted that he was ‘delighted’ to be able to attract the Swiss sporting legend to the event.

He stated; “He will get a chance to see for himself just how enthusiastic Scottish fans are, and what a great venue The SSE Hydro is.

“Last year was such a fantastic night and to raise over £300,000 for Unicef and Young People’s Futures in our first year was amazing. It is important for me to be able support Unicef again this year, and to help a different local charity as well.”

Federer, 35 who claimed his 18th Australian Open last month will take part in his own charity event in Zurich with Andy in April fundraising for education initiatives in Africa and Switzerland.
