Yes another exhibition match.. ya'll!

World No 1 Rafael Nadal of Spain and compatriot David Ferrer will play a tennis exhibition match in Taiwan in autumn, organisers said on Tuesday.

The match, which will take place at National Taiwan Sport University on October 1, is to create a boost for Taiwan's tennis scene, the International Management Group (IMG) and its local partner told a news conference.
In a video message to Taiwan fans, Nadal said he is looking forward to the match against Ferrer, currently ranked sixth.

In addition, a women's exhibition match between former No 1 Maria Sharapova and fellow-Russian Vera Zvonareva will be staged on September 22 in Taipei, IMG said.
The two matches will be the biggest tennis event in Taiwan which is trying to produce its own world-class tennis players. Earlier this year, former stars Andre Agassi and Marat Safin played exhibition matches against Taiwan players in Taipei and Kaohsiung.
