Roger Federer meets Pelé in Brazil

On earlier before the second Gillette Federer Tour exhibition match Roger Federer met the legendary footballer  Pele.

Roger Federer: Had the incredible honor today to meet the great legend Pele. He was so nice and his energy is amazing!!!!

Pele: I love to play tennis, and today, one of the greatest in the sport stopped by to say hello. Roger Federer, you are a true champion on and off the court.

Pele presented his Brazilian National Football Team shirt that he weared in the 1958 FIFA World Cup Final between Brazil and Sweden that took place in Råsunda Stadium, Solna, Sweden on 28 June 1958. Brazil won the World Cup by defeating Sweden as 5-2, and thus won the trophy for the first time. Pele scored twice in that match.

Roger Federer booked his first victory on the Gillette Federer Tour in Brazil today. He defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6, 6-3 in a spectacular match full of fun such as a little dance with the mascots.

Roger will play Tommy Haas in São Paulo on 9th December 2012 at 6:00 pm (watch live on YouTube) before moving on to Argentina.
