Haiti fundraising a great success

17.01.2010 | Off Court

The charity-match that Roger initiated has turned out to be a great success! A total of 15'000 tickets for seats in the stadium were sold (full house), about 5'000 more visitors came to see the action on the screens on the compound, which normally stays closed on Sundays.

 

The athletes played a doubles competition in two teams:

Team Federer: Roger, Serena Williams, Lleyton Hewitt, Samantha Stosur.

Team Nadal: Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Roddick, Kim Clijsters.

 

Roger's team was eventually defeated 6-7 in the show-match. All in all, the stars were able to generate about 200'000 Dollars with the event. The money will be donated to help the victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
