Dear Tennis Fans,
On Thursday, September 22nd, we are playing a historic tennis match at the Taipei Arena in Taiwan. It will be the first time that both of us visit Taiwan, a country with a proud tennis history in Asia. As we learned about Taiwan before confirming our visits shortly after the devastating earthquake that hit Japan earlier this year, we learned that both Taiwan and Japan are islands, both countries rely on nuclear power and both have suffered from devastating earthquakes over the years. Having visited and played in Japan on many occasions, we thought it would be very appropriate to ad a charity component to our match in Taipei, as a way to raise funds for the many that have and are still suffering from the earthquake and tsunami and nuclear catastrophe in Japan in 2011.
By bidding and ultimately purchasing the autographed items and experiences on this website, you, the tennis fans of Asia, will have the opportunity to not only own these items and enjoy these once in a lifetime experiences, but also help out in a small way the many people in Japan that are still suffering the consequences of a horrific natural disaster.
Please give generously and with heart and we promise you all a night to remember in Taipei on September 22nd.
Thank you for your donations and generosity,
Maria Sharapova and Vera Zvonareva
