Novak Djokovic and other top players will play exhibition matches at Melbourne Park on Sunday, the day before the Australian Open begins, to raise money for victims of the devastating earthquake which hit Haiti on Thursday.
World number one Roger Federer has invited a number of tennis stars to take part in exhibition and help Haiti after the tragic earthquake. Apart from Federer and Djokovic, the “Hit for Haiti” charity event includes Spaniard Rafael Nadal, Americans Andy Roddick and Serena Williams, Belgian Kim Clijsters and Australians Lleyton Hewitt and Samantha Stosur.
”I had the idea we could do something to help Haiti so I spoke to some other top players and they all said ‘yes, we should do something’,” Federer said.
The exhibition will be held at 15000-seat Rod Laver Arena. The admission price will be $10, and all proceeds will go to the Haiti earthquake victims.
