This match was to help raise money for the fight against fires in Australia. The Maestro last tournament was the ATP Finals in London where he lost against Dominic Thiem but then beat Matteo Berrettini and Novak Djokovic in straight sets to advance to the ½ finals.
His opponent in the semifinal was Stefanos Tsitsipas and the Greek won that match 3-6, 4-6 and then also won the tournament. Before playing in London, Federer won the trophy in his hometown, Basel, after a victory in the final against Alex De Minaur 6-2, 6-2.

Johnson and Federer played twice and the Maestro won both of these games. Roger is the favorite and I expect nothing else than a solid victory for him because he will be fresh and rested at the start of the season. Value tennis betting tips: Roger Federer to win
