Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal,
the world's top two players, will try to set a record attendance
for a tennis match when they face off at Real Madrid's Bernabeu
stadium in July, the club said on Tuesday.
"The objective of this exhibition match is to set a
spectator record for a game of tennis, exceeding 80,000," the
nine-times European champions said on their website.
The charity event, to be played on July 14, is being
organised by the Realmadrid Foundation and the Rafa Nadal
Foundation, with the proceeds going to projects developed by
both around the world.
Spaniard Nadal is a well-known Real fan while Serbian
Djokovic has been a guest of honour at the club's facilities,
and once wore a Real shirt when he walked out for a tennis match
at the Madrid Masters.
