Hit for Haiti – part deux announced

For a sport that has a reputation for being elitist, Tennis sure does do a lot of good in the world of charity. In what can be filed under “pure awesome win”, it has been announced that Rafa Nadal and André Agassi will take on TMD and his equally douchey “GOAT” predecessor, Pete Sampras, in a doubles match as a  “Hit for Haiti” mark two at Indian Wells in March.

Yeah. I’m gonna go ahead and say I want these dudes to win.

Although kudos to these douchebags for getting involved in even more charity work.

The match will take place on March 12th, and will be televised by The Tennis Channel. New IW tournament owner, Larry Ellison, is organising it, and donated $1m of his own money, so well done to him.

Let’s just hope that a lot of money is raised for this very worthy cause, and that the match is as epic as it could be!

 

Hit For Haiti: Vid Spam

Some kind soul already downloaded the whole thing on You Tube.  The quality is not that great but better than nothing. For those who missed it or want to see it again, this is for you. There are six parts and it’s quite long. Enjoy.

Hit for Haiti

Tennis stars are coming together to raise money for those affected by the devastating earthquake in Haiti. It’s a truly worthy cause, and tickets will cost just $10, all of which will go directly towards helping victims.

Nole, Rafa, RAndy, Kimmy, ReRe and Slammin Sammy will take part in the special mixed-doubles event, along with Federer.

It was, in fact, Roger who organised the event. Credit where it’s due, he has a great track record when it comes to charitable causes. Good for you, Federer, a most admirable idea.

Kudos to all the players involved. You are a credit to your sport!
