A charity football match was played last night in Miami to raise funds for devastated Japan which is facing disastrous earthquake and tsunami consequences.

The best Serbian tennis player captained the ATP World Tour Allstars. The tennis boys fell 4-2 to the Fort Lauderdale Strikers, a second-tier team in the United States as goals from Andy Murray and Marcos Baghdatis were not enough to give them victory.

The result had little meaning, of course, compared to the funds raised for the American Red Cross’ relief efforts in Japan.

It was a special evening for Japan’s no.1 Kei Nishikori, who took the field with Djokovic and Murray in the Allstars starting team. The match was followed by a gala dinner which also sought to raise funds for the relief work.
