Friendship, Fun and Saving Lives: Formula For A Perfection Day

16th of December 2008

The day finally arrived!! - Rafa's friends and Iker's friends have met for the second year in a row for a great cause. The objective: help those in desperate need of assistance to stop Malaria from killing more children.

A magnific reason to put together this event, and celebrate life with some of the best sportsmen in the world. The spirit of competition and classic score system were not part of the evening and instead they replaced it with fun and entertainment for an incredible crowd, which witnessed a very special moment in Rafa's and Iker's lives. This is how they split up the teams:

Rafa Nadals team: Carlos Moyá, Jorge Lorenzo, Raúl González, Almudena Cid, Carlos Sastre, Marcos Senna, Novak Djokovic, Sergio García, Carlos Sainz, Sete Gibernau and Samuel Eto'o.

Iker Casillass team: David Ferrer, Carmen Jordá, Feliciano López, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Santi Cazorla, Sergio Ramos, Alberto Contador, Dani Sordo, Alvaro Bautista, Kanouté and Fernando Alonso.

Madrid's El Palacio de los Deportes was the stage for 3 contests: A kart race, a tennis match (one set) and a soccer match which had Rafa Guerrero as the referee. At the end of the encounters, it was Iker's friends who got away with the victory after Dani Sordo (in the goalkeepers team) won an exciting kart race against Carlos Sainz and Fernando Alonso.

Add to that a draw in the tennis match and a solid win in the soccer match.ser, Iker Casillas, ilovemylife, Madrid, Against Malaria, Rafa, Rafael Nadal, Red Cross, Sandra Hammel, Schedule, Sold Out, Palacio de Deportes,Tennis, Football, Soccer, Kart Racing, Dec

A big congratulations to all the members of their team for helping put on an incredible show, but most importantly, for helping raise enough money to keep saving lives. These people are the real winners of this event. End of text from Rafael Nadal's website.
