When charity meets tennis

More and more tennis players are involved in charity alongside their passion for tennis. The example has been given by the big names in the field, and many others follow. A characteristic example is Roger Federer, whose foundation  funds education in poor third world countries. The millionaire player supports the infrastructure of existing school infrastructure and still cares about improving the living conditions of children.

Another way to support charity activities is to participate in charity events and tournaments. Stefanos Tsitsipas, who is one of the representatives of "Together for the Child" organization and has participated in various competitions whose income goes to children with special needs both in Greece and abroad.
But also women tennis players do charity. Serena Williams supports the charity action of her friend and Duchess of Sussex Megan Markle, while through her own institution she helps victims of violence and also supports educational goals by building schools in her native Africa.
Another charity is about raising awareness about the environment. Puerto Rico's best tennis player, Puig rushed to help her island after the disproportionate damage that caused Hurricane "Maria" last September. Through its online mobilization, it has managed to raise the amount of $ 150,000 while organizing events to distribute food and other essentials to disaster victims.
