Roger Federer plays fun match for Africa vs Andy Murray in Zurich Switzerland

Tennis fans got to see Andy Murray back in action after a spell out injured...but probably not how they expected .

The World No.1 was forced to withdraw from the Miami Open in March after injuring his elbow. He has also has suffered with shingles and illness since the turn of the year.

The Brit subsequently missed Great Britain's exit from the Davis Cup against France over the weekend but kept up his promise to play against Roger Federer in 'The Match for Africa 3' at the Hallenstadion on Monday night..but not before he had taken on the Swiss champ on a FLOATING tennis court.

The duo knocked balls about on a raft as it floated down the river Limmat in Zurich.

And later than night they returned to more normal surroundings as Murray 6-3 7-6 (7/5) against in-form Federer.

Reigning Australian Open champion Federer is set to take a voluntary sabbatical before the French Open begins at the end of May.

Asked what his plans were over the coming weeks, Federer responded: "Not very much."I'll be resting most of the time. The body needs a rest, I can feel it.

"Everything is good. I should be back for the French Open, that's the plan."
