Rio de Janerio: Novak Djokovic will play an exhibition match against retired champion Gustavo Kuerten in Brazil in November.

Djokovic will play the three-time French Open champ to help inaugurate a tennis court in Rocinha shantytown, one of Latin America's largest slums.

Djokovic will also play a football friendly before a Brazilian league match. He will join Serbian countryman Dejan Petkovic, who starred for several Brazilian clubs in the last decade.
