Johannesburg – Cape Town, get ready for one epic tennis match. 

In 2019 it was announced that SA comedian Trevor Noah will step on the court with tennis greats Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal as well as billionaire businessman Bill Gates as part of the 'The Match in Africa' campaign. 

The game will see Noah and Nadal team up against Federer and Gates. Funds raised will benefit the Roger Federer Foundation.  

Tweeting about the match, Trevor wrote on Wednesday. 

"Hey @RogerFederer, you & @billgates want to play doubles against me & @RafaelNadal!? Okay. We accept your challenge, but be prepared for the crowd in SA to be on our side! See you Feb 7 in Cape Town! Masihambe!"

Of course, the event, which is in its sixth year, will also see Federer take on Nadal.
