Last Friday, May 2 the Mutua Madrid Open celebrated its Charity Day, a charitable initiative with the aim of raising funds for the projects both of Rafa Nadal and Iker Casillas Foundations.
Presented by Jose Corbacho, the event was attended by a large number of famous faces, including athletes and celebrities like Serena Williams, Andy Murray, Carlos Moyá, Sergio Llul, Thibaut Courtois, Nieves Álvarez, Dani Rovira and Cristina Pedroche, among others.
The hundreds of fans who attended the Caja Mágica’s Central Tennis Court enjoyed a tennis match and afterwards a football-tennis one. After the event, Rafael Nadal explained that he felt “very grateful to all my colleagues... I hope people enjoyed the event, in which Iker and I have collected money for our foundations in order to continue bringing opportunities to many children”. In the case of Rafa Nadal Foundation, the funds will be intended for the Integration and Sport project.
