On his Instagram account, Bill posted a photo with Roger with the caption:

“I’m a huge fan of @rogerfederer, so the chance to play tennis with him is a dream come true. It’s also a great opportunity to shine a light on the terrific philanthropic work that he and his family are doing in southern Africa. I’ll get to play alongside him again tonight in the #MatchForAfrica (which you can watch live on Facebook).”
