Tennis stars to raise money with soccer
Nadal and Djokovic are in South Florida to compete in the Sony Ericsson Open, which began Tuesday.
Andy Murray and David Ferrer are among others planning to play in the soccer match against the Fort Lauderdale Strikers professional team at a Miami high school Wednesday night. A fundraising dinner is planned after the game and proceeds will go to the American Red Cross Japan disaster relief effort.
Djokovic won the BNP Paribas Open in California last week while playing with messages written on his knee tape in support of Japan.
