Fan Week w/Rafa, Jimmy Connors, Coco Grauff and Iga Swiatek raised $1.2 million for Ukrainian Charities

 Yesterday, during free fan week, the USTA held a party / fund-raiser for Ukrainian charities. It was not only great for Ukraine - $1.2 Million was raised, but also great for fans.

For fans that might not ever to afford tickets when Rafael Nadal, Coco Grauff or women's #1 Iga Swaitek plays, they could see these stars and more during a fund raising event Play for Peace. It was in the newest venue, Louise Armstrong court.

It started with a child who sang the Ukrainian National Anthem beautifully. It is a long long Anthem, but still, well done.

The first "match" was between Rafa Nadal and Iga Swiatek versus Coco Grauff and Jimmy Connors. It was all in good fun and a great time. And rarely do you see Rafa laughing during a game.
