International tennis stars to play for Australia bushfire charity games

Even tennis superstars are now actively involved in helping Australia rise once again following the devastating bushfires.

Big names in the tennis industry including Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal will be featured in several exhibition matches in their efforts to raise money for the victims as the fires have already destroyed over 1,800 houses and killed 25 individuals since September, as per reports from Agence France Presse.

“For a period of about two-and-a-half hours we’re going to be showcasing the game, but also coming together as a community to play our part in the relief effort,” said Tennis Australia chief Craig Tiley.

Set to take place at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, the matches will also serve as a primer for the Australian Open as it takes place January 15, exactly one week before the opening of the annual Grand Slam.

Included in the star-studded tennis roster are Naomi Osaka, Caroline Wozniacki, Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas who are all set for the challenge to help Australia.

“All the information we have at the moment, with qualifying coming up next week, is that the forecast is good, we don’t expect any delays and we’ve implemented additional measures to ensure the Australian Open will be able to run as scheduled,” Tiley furthered.

Tiley pointed to Melbourne Park having three roofed stadiums and eight other indoor courts which “effectively weather-proof the Australian Open”.
