Kate Middleton has two great passions in life: sports and charity. No wonder then that she did not hesitate for a second to participate in the Laver Cup in the company of an immense tennis champion, Roger Federer.
Kate Middleton is a great sports enthusiast, and tennis in particular. Moreover, this year, she has not missed a single major match of the Wimbledon tournament, sometimes sharing this moment with her husband, sometimes with her eldest son, Prince George. Very involved in the fight against inequality and poverty in the United Kingdom, the Duchess of Cambridge is also a sponsor of a number of charities. She therefore did not need to force herself for a single second to participate in this annual event combining sport and charity.

According to information revealed by the magazine People , Prince William's wife will indeed soon play hand in hand with the man who has no less than twenty Grand Slam victories to his credit, we have named Roger Federer . The Duchess and the tennis player will team up as part of a special day organized alongside the Laver Cup, an annual men's tennis competition, the Open Practice Day .
Excited to announce that Laver Cup is partnering with The Duchess of Cambridge this year to raise funds for two incredible charities @actionforchildrenuk and the @LTA Tennis Foundation. Thank you for your support, and I look forward to seeing you in London! https://t.co/7B82Gkj5EE

Like every year, it will see two teams compete. That of European players including Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Casper Ruud and Stéfanos Tsitsipás (just that) will thus play against that of international players such as Felix Auger-Aliassime, Taylor Fritz Jack Sock or even Diego Schwartzman. This year, the tournament will therefore take place in London and this day will be an opportunity to raise funds for two associations dear to the heart of Kate Middleton and of which she is also the godmother . The first, Action for Children, supports vulnerable children and their families across the UK. The second, Fondation LTA, offers underprivileged children moments of leisure and sport. It could therefore be that a good number of teenagers, all aged between 8 and 15 and from east London, will be invited to this large-scale charity event. And may they all have the chance to exchange a few balls with the eight-time Wimbledon champion! Open Practice Day will therefore be held in public and all proceeds from ticket sales will be split between said organizations. .
And if the news of Kate Middleton's participation in Open Practice Day delights fans of the Crown, this is not the first time that the Swiss and the Duchess have met. In effect, the tennis player is a longtime friend of the Cambridge clan . Already in 2019, he gave some lessons to the eldest son of the Duke and Duchess, Prince George. Two years earlier, he was even invited to the wedding of Pipa, Kate's sister.Source journaldesfemmes.fr
