WTA CHARITIES: MAKING A CHANGE IN PRAGUE & RABAT
Wozniacki Headlines Kids Day In Prague
No.2 seed Caroline Wozniacki had some fun prior to debuting at the J&T Banka Prague Open this week, taking part in the tournament's Kids' Day.
The World No.11, who kicked off her tournament with a 6-0, 7-5 win over Misaki Doi on Tuesday, spent some time on court with children in attendance before taking time to sign autographs and later met the media.
Prague Donates Its Ticket Sales To Charity
After the final, which saw Mona Barthel defeat Kristyna Pliskova to win her first title since 2014, the J&T Banka Open announced that it would donate all of the ticket sales from both singles and doubles finals – 70,000 Czech korunas in total - to two charities.
Here are some photos from the announcement during the trophy ceremony!
Rabat Inspiring The Next Generation Of Tennis Stars
In Rabat, the Grand Prix De SAR La Princesse Lalla Meryem gave dozens of lucky Moroccan children the chance to be up close and personal with professional tennis stars at Kids Day.
Pauline Parmentier joined Laura Pous-Tio and some local tennis players - including Morocco's own Lina Qostal - to put on a clinic for the kids, running through drills and games and helping them fine-tune their tennis skills.
