Serena Williams and David Ferrer will be the main draw at the Mutua Madrid Open Charity Day on 1 May in an event presented by Arturo Valls and led by Elsa Pataky.
Excitement, fun and games on a charity afternoon that nobody will want to miss. Tennis players Serena Williams and David Ferrer and actress Elsa Pataky will square off with a number of other celebrities in various challenges on Mutua Madrid Open Charity Day, which takes place on Friday 1 May at 17:00 on the Centre Court – Manolo Santana Stadium in the Caja Mágica.
Everyone will be doing their bit to contribute to this charity initiative to raise money for The Serena Williams Foundation, which offers aid to families and provides an education to young people who do not have access to one, and the Fundación Fero for cancer research, for which Elsa Pataky is the ambassador. The Fundación Mutua Madrileña will be demonstrating its generosity by contributing to the causes of the other foundations.
The format of the charity event will be the same as last year’s, which included players and celebrities such as Rafa Nadal, Iker Casillas, Feliciano López, Andy Murray, Cristina Pedroche, Rudy Fernández and Dani Rovira. This year Elsa Pataky tops the list of famous faces: Jesús Castro, Antonio Velázquez, Almudena Cid, Paloma Lago e Iván Helguera.
