Having A Blast At Acapulco Kids Day

Mexico's Giuliana Olmos joined forces with WTA Charities and a handful of ATP players at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel to give underprivileged kids in Acapulco the experience of a lifetime at the 24th edition of AMT Kids Day by Nickelodeon.

AMT Kids Day hosted hundreds of children from the Teleton Center of Childhood Rehabilitation as well as Guerrero's DIF, an organization that works with family developments in the area.

Olmos and the players were recognized by the tournament as "Agents of Change" for making a difference by being a positive example for the youth.

Autism Awareness In Kuala Lumpur

In the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur, players took a break from their preparations for the Alya WTA Malaysian Open to visit Pusat Permata Kurnia, a learning centre for autistic children aged 4-7 and where the motto reads: 'Autism Is Not A Tragedy, Ignorance Is.'

Australian buddies Casey Dellacqua and Ashleigh Barty, who teamed up in the doubles draw, were joined by wildcard Zheng Saisai and Malaysian player Theiviya Selvarajoo at the learning centre.
