Trevor Noah, tennis stars and billionaire Bill blasting balls for better schools
The exhibition match between tennis superstars Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal at Cape Town Stadium on Friday is in aid of the Roger Federer Foundation’s educational efforts in rural areas in Southern Africa.
Comedian Trevor Noah will partner with Rafael Nadal in a celebrity doubles encounter against Roger Federer and Microsoft's Bill Gates for the celeb curtain-raiser match.
Quite a lot of high net worth individuals running after a little green ball - with lots of benefits for the Federer foundation and for South Africa.
Dr. Michael Goldman, assistant professor at the sports management department at the University of San Fransisco, is enthusiastic that the event is not only generating millions for rural education - but the knock-on effects are also good for tourism.
Over two million dollars of ticket sales generated and hundred of thousands of people will tune in.
