UPDATED: It's Official... Rafael Nadal is Coming to Cairo
It's been all over Facebook for over a week now, but now that it was officially announced in Egypt's national newspaper, Al Ahram, I can finally post this (I mean if Al Ahram says it, then it must be true, right??!). Rafael Nadal is coming to play an exhibition in Cairo during the first week of February 2011, in the Gezira Club, against his fellow Spaniard, Juan Carlos Ferrero.
The idea is believed to have come from Egypt's Minister of Tourism, Zoheir Garana, in efforts to boost sports tourism in Egypt.
Stay tuned for more details and feel free to contact me if you want to attend.
The match is no longer happening. As many of you might know, Juan Carlos Ferrero is injured and he won't be able to make it to Cairo before April. Nadal will not be free at that time so Ferrero is reportedly going to play David Ferrer instead.
