KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 14 (Bernama) -- Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer is scheduled to meet fans at the Petronas Twin Towers here on Tuesday in conjunction with the Showdown of Champions Kuala Lumpur 2008.

The men's singles World Number Two has allocated 40 minutes to meet his fans at the lobby of the Petronas Philharmonic Hall between 11.45am and 12.25pm, said Adlan Zabri, the Chief Executive Officer of LD Sports Sdn Bhd, the promoters of the event.

"This will be a chance in a lifetime for Malaysian tennis fans to get this close with Federer. He has agreed to sign autographs for the fans and this is indeed a rare occasion," he said.

He said as the turn out would be huge, fans are advised to assemble at Petronas Philharmonic Hall's lobby area early and to follow instructions issued by security personnel at the location to avoid disappointment.

Federer, together with James Blake, and legends John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg will be participating in the Showdown of Champions at Putra Stadium, Bukit Jalil on the same day.

Meanwhile, one lucky fan will be driving home a Proton Satria Neo if he or she catches a golden ball hit by the players prior to the start of the second match between Federer and Blake.

Aside from being thrilled by the skills of world class tennis players, spectators of the Showdown of Champions will also be entertained by the countrys leading divas like Jaclyn Victor, Ning Baizura and Ella.
