[WATCH] 'Clay court' all set for Federer-Nadal showdown at Cape Town stadium
The Match in Africa will be played on a portable tennis court with an acrylic surface and elastic sub-layer for shock absorption.
The court was shipped in from Europe and is completely reusable with zero waste.
Tennis court builder Jan Kemmer says the court has the feel of a clay court, with a terra cotta orange surface. However, it's technically a hard court.
It was completed on Thursday and has been placed in the centre of the Cape Town Stadium pitch where the action will take place.
Kemmer explains that the court will be raised by 1,2 metres on an elevated stage
The tennis stars have given the court a thumbs up after testing it for themselves.
