Best sport on Earth

I'm so proud of tennis. In the past year, we've seen the players band together to help raise money for a trio of countries in need: Haiti, Australia and now Japan.

Today's soccer (fine, football) match was a great fundraiser and although I haven't seen any footage, the pics alone are enough to warm the heart. 

Hope Match for Japan featured so many top tennis stars: Rafa, Nole, Ferrer, Muzz, Lopez, Verdasco, Tsonga, Pico, Bagdatis, Melzer, Troicki and of course Japan's Nishikori. These guys all took time out of their busy schedules (during a massive tournament no less) to help raise money to aid devastated Japan. It's so heartwarming.

Pretty funny to see the players kitted out in soccer attire and I hope highlights from the match will end on Youtube. Shame they couldn't have had some of the ladies on the field. I reckon players like Sveta, JJ, Stosur and Schiavone could have kicked some bum on the soccer field!

Until then, here are a few of my fave photos:
