The 34-year-old is known to be actively involved in the racket sport and usually trains in a military barracks during his leisure time.
Togolese legend Emmanuel Adebayor who has traveled round Europe to ply his trade for different teams is also said to be a lover of tennis.
And both Gyan and Adebayor are set to square off in the court in a typical fashion like Raphael Nadal and Roger Ferder in a Grand Slam final.
The pair who have many goals in their careers are also going head-to-head for who is a better tennis player and they have tagged their meeting as "clash of the legends".
In an Instagram interview with the Adebayor called out his fellow African striker to a challenge in the tennis court.
“It is going to be fire for fire. Who is Asamoah Gyan? I am going to finish him,” he said in an Instagram video.
“Asamoah Gyan come out,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Taiwo Awoniyi was taken off with a stretcher to the hospital during Mainz Bundesliga 1-0 defeat to Augsburg.
The on loan Liverpool striker was involved in a clash of heads with a German-born of Nigerian descent Felix Uduokhai.
The collision with the defender ended in a nasty fall for Awoniyi who was immediately attended to by medical staff on ground.
Legit.ng also reported that Chidozie Awaziem committed a defensive blunder in Leganes' 2-1 defeat to Real Valladolid at the restart of their La Liga campaign.
After just two minutes in the match, the Super Eagles defender and goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar had a misunderstanding which led to Enes Unal finding the back of the net for Valladolid.
Awaziem's intended back pass to Cuellar was misjudged as Unal took advantage of the error and slammed the ball into an empty net. l
