CINCINNATI, OH, USA - Shelby Rogers and CoCo Vandeweghe formed the perfect tag team to make lots of kids at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital very happy.

Up first, Rogers and her coach Marc Lucero hit the local Target in Cincinnati to do a bit of shopping, choosing out toys for the children.

WTA Charities also donated needed infant toys to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, along with the Kendra Scott Giving Program, a tournament sponsor which gave to the older children at the hospital.
