Tennis icons, including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams, are coming together to headline the AO Rally for Relief exhibition match that will take place at Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday January 15.

All funds raised from AO Rally for Relief will be donated to the bushfire relief cause.

AO Rally for Relief  is part of the broader Aces for Bushfire Relief program, launched by Tennis Australia in response to the devastating bushfire crisis across the country, and which has been embraced by the global tennis community.

“This unprecedented bushfire crisis is devastating people, properties, communities, livestock and animals across the country and our hearts go out to all those affected,” Tennis Australia CEO and Australian Open Tournament Director Craig Tiley said.

“We felt it was vital we use all our events across the summer to make a meaningful contribution to help these people and communities rebuild their lives. The response from the tennis community – our players, clubs, partners and international tennis bodies – has been overwhelming and it’s wonderful to see everyone pull together.
