Updated (Check out some new photos posted below from Roger’s Facebook page).
Nike’s Clash of Champions charity event was today in Oregon, and some of the biggest names in tennis took part. Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal, Maria Sharapova, and Victoria Azarenka all played and all funds from ticket sales went toward their charitable foundations.
Rafa took the exhibition set against Roger 7-5, and John McEnroe made a surprise appearance. Read the full article here via the Associate Press on Yahoo! Tennis.
Here are some more photos from Justin Gimelstob via his Twitter. Cmon Justin, get a phone with a better camera..these are pretty blurry!
Roger returning serve:
This is a photo sent in from a fan who attends the University of Oregon. Thanks for sending this in, its clearer than Justin Gimelstob’s photos from close up!
Final note, it looks like Roger will be playing doubles with fellow Swiss, Stan Wawrinka! “I play doubles here….With the other Swiss guy ;-)….” – Thats Stan via his Twitter. He just seemed to confirm it saying, “Yes with RF….”
Well thats that then! For those of you going to Indian Wells this weekend, you may get the chance to watch Roger playing singles, doubles, and in practice!
Thanks for visiting!
