"I got a tennis coach and in two months I had to learn tennis from scratch and it was one of the craziest things I have done in my life.

I played every single day for 2 to three hours, every single day, just learning how to play tennis", said Noah.

Noah partnered with Nadal against Roger Federer and Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates for the charity match in Cape Town earlier this month.
