USO: Kids’ Day

Thanks to Suzanne for pointing out that Rafa is now included in the list of participants in Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day this Saturday at the USO.

This year’s lineup is guaranteed to rock the house with some of today’s hot young new talent. Fans will see funnyman Will Ferrell and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks singing her new hit “Battlefield.” Also performing are rising star boy band Honor Society and Usher protégé Justin Bieber. Plus see exciting tennis matches and contests with former US Open champions Serena Williams, Andy Roddick and Maria Sharapova plus Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal, Kim Clijsters, James Blake and Novak Djokovic. The popular tennis and music festival, which includes interactive games, musical entertainment and tennis clinics, will be hosted by television personalities Susie Castillo and Quddus.

For those in the US, tune in to CBS Sunday, August 30, from 12:00 – 1:30 pm (ET) for the Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day television broadcast.

    Well, if I remember rightly, Rafa kicked everyone’s bottoms at the money collecting precision shot thingy they did last year at the kids’ day. So, at least we might see some more of that this year. Vamos! :D

    They should have an eating contest. Rafa would win that hands down.

    I guess this is where we miss out. Don’t think there will be any live telecast of this event down under. Maybe a replay if we are lucky. It’s coming into our finals period & football both AFL & Rugby take precidence. At least the USO will be live here.

    Fun! Hey don’t Rafa & Kimmy get along real well? I think he said once how she’s the nicest girl on the tour. I swear they did some promo thing together too. And now she’s back! Anyways, hope it’s a good time. The music stuff sounds pretty cheesy tho :/

    I won’t get to see it either.
    Oh, but charismatic Rafa will be wonderful here, as he’s such a natural, (and a brilliant, positive influence on kids).

    Seriously,let’s hope he can imbue some Rafa-cum Toni philosophy into the young ‘uns. (The current celeb-as-an-end-in-itself culture among kids in the UK has me foaming at the mouth.)Sorry if this last remark is off post, but such rubbish debases achievements like Rafa’s. *grrr*
