Top-ranked tennis players competing at Australian Open 2010 are donating their racquets to help victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti.

All proceeds will be sent to aid organisation, Partners in Health www.pih.org, nominated by world No.1 Roger Federer at a special fund-raising event the Swiss champion initiated at Melbourne Park on Sunday 17 January 2010.

Bids for these racquets will close at 10pm on Sunday 31 January Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) +1100 UTC following the conclusion of the menís final at Australian Open 2010.

Fans have the opportunity to bid on racquets used by the following players at Australian Open 2010: world No.1 Roger Federer, No.2 Rafael Nadal, No.3 Novak Djokovic and reigning US Open champion Kim Clijsters.

Thought I would post it here as well.
Another great initiative by the players!
This is for a good cause!:)

The auction is pretty new. It still has 4 or 5 days left or so. I won't be surprised to see it go for 20k at this rate.

we can all ship in and buy federer's racquet. Each Person gets 2 days to play with it and then they have to give it to the next person and so on.
