The ATP held a special year-end gala auction last night in London. Held at Battersea Power Station, the event raised more than $630,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
Among those in attendance were… well just about everybody.
All the top eight men made appearances including tournament favorites Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer along with the top doubles teams.
“I’m very happy to be here tonight, and I’m proud to qualify for the season-ending event for a 10th time,” said Federer. “We have a great group of players this year and it’s fantastic to have this launch party. It’s something new and it’s for a great cause. It’s very nice to see that the ATP and the players have come together to support charity tonight.”
Patients from Great Ormond Street Hospital will be special guests at the 2011 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals at The O2, and will get to meet their tennis heroes.
The ATP World Tour Finals begin on Sunday.
