Federer set to help Aussie charity

Sydney: An Australian children's charity is hoping someone will pay big dollars to play tennis with Roger Federer. On Thursday, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation, a charity which raises money for medical equipment for children's hospitals, said an hour of tennis with Federer and his coach, Sydney-based Tony Roche, would be among the items up for bid at the group's annual ball on Saturday. "Roger is always keen to help a good cause," said Roche. "And helping provide for sick Aussie kids is definitely one of them." The package also includes two first-class return air tickets to Dubai and five nights at a resort. "We're not sure how much someone might be prepared to pay for the opportunity," said Humpty Dumpty Foundation chairman Paul Francis. "But we're hopeful of a six-figure sum." The No. 1-ranked Federer is in New York defending his US Open title. (AP)
