Cape Town - South African tennis fans were left irate on Wednesday morning when tickets to next February's exhibition 'Match in Africa' between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal were reportedly sold out in just 10 minutes. 

The tickets, which ranged in price from R150 to R1 950, were on sale online on the Computicket website as well as at Computicket and Shoprite stores countrywide. 

Purchasers were allowed a maximum of six tickets each, but the vast majority left empty-handed - and fuming.

Computicket confirmed via its Twitter account that it took just over 10 minutes for the tickets to be snapped up by tennis fans.
