“Best Tour Guide Ever” – Trevor Noah Gets a Surprise Visit from Roger Federer in Zurich

Perhaps Switzerland’s greatest athlete, Roger Federer, enjoyed great success on the tennis court. During his career, he won 20 Grand Slam singles titles, which is the second best among male players. Apart from playing tennis, he is also one of the richest athletes in 2022, although he has been absent from the tennis court for almost a year. In his spare time, he produced some of the best commercials for Switzerland Tourism, as their brand ambassador. It seems that his advertisements are attracting a lot of people in Switzerland, as the famous American talk show host Trevor Noah visited Federer in Switzerland.

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah is currently in Switzerland on his comedy tour. Last night he was in Geneva, since he posted a story on his Instagram. In this story, he says, he will soon visit Zurich as well.

However, the South African comedian received a nice welcome surprise from none other than Roger Federer himself. According to the comedian, the Swiss player is the best tourist guide he has ever had. He posted a photo with Roger and wrote, “The best tour guide ever! @rogerfederer #visitswitzerland.”

Then Roger reposted this on his Instagram story, praising Noah’s amazing comedy show. “What an entertaining sight…Nice to see you buddy!” » Federer wrote on Instagram.

Notably, this isn’t the first time they’ve collaborated. Previously, they played in an exhibition match, alongside Rafael Nadal and Bill Gates in South Africa on February 7, 2020. The match was a huge success as it generated over $3 million and nearly 50,000 gathered inside the stadium to watch the game.

After suffering a heavy Wimbledon quarter-final loss last year to Hubert Hurkacz, Federer underwent knee surgery. Since then he has not played on the tour. As of now, he is still in recovery mode and will likely miss Wimbledon this year.

However, he has already announced his comeback tournament. It will take place on its native soil, in Basel, in October. Before that, he will also make his return to the Laver Cup, scheduled for September. Either way, fans are pretty excited to see the Swiss maestro back on the tour.
