The Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the United States has become a global generosity movement called Giving Tuesday, a day to celebrate giving back, volunteering and acts of kindness.
Here’s what your favorite WTA players are up to as they work to impact their communities, give back to the underprivileged and spread some kindness on Giving Tuesday.
Madison Keys’ Kindness Wins Foundation is all about acts of kindness, alongside fellow ‘champions of kindness’ Mikaela Shiffrin and Oksana Masters.

Serving Up Hope is American player Vania King’s nonprofit organization, founded in 2019. On Giving Tuesday, King looked back on the organization's work as they help children in underprivileged populations to develop valuable social and physical skills through tennis. They also empower communities to provide and maintain tennis programs.
