Haiti fundraising event

Dear fans

We are going to have a fun exo at Melbourne Park tomorrow (Sunday) at 2 p.m. to help raise monies for relief efforts in Haiti from the devastating earthquake. Other top players such as Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Kim Clijsters, Serena Williams and Sam Stosur will also participate. The entry fee is a minimum donation of $10. This should be fun and it's for a great cause.

I think it’s something as a tennis family we’re very happy to do. I know it’s on the eve of the first Grand Slam of the season, so it’s for some not so easy maybe mentally to separate a few things – but I think it’s a great initiative.

The devastating earthquake which hit Haiti on Tuesday measured 7.0 on the Richter Scale and has left tens of thousands of people dead. The United Nations has launched an appeal for hundreds of millions of dollars to try to help around three million people in need.

We all hope to see lots of you there to support the cause - it may be a nice day also for families to come and see some top players play!
