The ATP players showed a relax performance and a unusual covered teamwork, and received enthusiastic cheering from the crowd. ATP player’s team, captained by Djokovic, scored by Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis and Scotland's Andy Murray in the 40 minutes match. Nadal and compatriots David Ferrer and Fernando Verdasco were among the reserves.

After the soccer match, a gala dinner was held and raised $100,000 for the American Red Cross Japan disaster relief effort.
