But now is tennis time and I'm happy to share this moment with Novak and benefit the charity. I have to thank Bulat Utemuratov for the invitation. Thank you Novak for supporting this charity match. It's really nice to be back in this country, it's great to be here. I could not imagine how beautiful this country is until my first visit. I hope this match will attract a lot of interest among the fans, especially among the children."
Novak: "Здравствуйте, салем. You speak Russian, and I know a little bit of that language. This is my first time in Kazakhstan, in this beautiful city. Thank you Rafael for playing with me again. I hope that one day we will play an ATP tournament in Kazakhstan. It is important for our sport that a person like Utemuratov provides support to tennis. I look forward to playing tennis with players from Kazakhstan."
