All proceeds will go to help flood victims in Queensland. The auction follows a tennis charity match on the eve of Australian Open 2011 featuring Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak, Djokovic, Kim Clijsters, Sam Stosur and Lleyton Hewitt.
Bids are still being taken for a range of tennis items donated by players on the day of the charity match.
They include a Roger Federer-signed Wilson tennis racquet, a Justine Henin-signed racquet, Ana Ivanovic’s latest outfit signed by the Serbian and Novak Djokovic’s new Sergio Tacchini shirt, also signed by the 2008 Australian Open champion. There are also official Australian Open hats, giant tennis balls and towels signed by players on the day.
