There is still hope for some Capetonians who missed out on the first round of tickets sales, however. The foundation has hinted at a possible second round of ticket sales as they consider adding more seating area to accommodate the demand.
“Lines were opened up by Computicket at 9am and within a record time of less than 10 minutes, the tickets were sold. To ensure that everybody has a good view, the event is running with the availability of 48,000 seats. We are considering adding more grandstands. Please keep an eye out for announcements if more tickets are available. Also, note that the event will also be televised,” Roger Federer Foundation CEO, Janine Händel told EWN.
Ticket prices and the day of release are yet to be confirmed but locals can keep an eye on our page for updates.
So for all those locals out there who thought their dreams of seeing Nadal and Federer battle it out had died, there is still hope.
