29-Mar-2011 Nastia Helps Raise Funds For Japan
Last week at the Sony Ericsson Open, Anastasia took part in a special fundraising event for the victims of the Japan earthquake and tsunami disaster. The event was dubbed “Tennis for Japan” and featured the stars of the WTA and the ATP World Tour, including Kim Clijsters, Vera Zvonareva, Robin Soderling and many others.
“Tennis is a global sport and when a tragedy strikes, the entire tennis community comes together and responds,” said Adam Barrett, Sony Ericsson Open Tournament director. “I think the fact that the entire tennis family has come together tonight to help raise money for the relief effort makes a powerful statement about the sport, its players, and sponsors.”
