Nice to hear that, thank you!

From what I saw on and off court last year in Hong Kong, Venus is popular there.

Yes, the most popular ones are venus, serena and maria.

We show great respect for Arantxa, and we appreciate the great play of Sveta and the hard work of Elena.

Personally I applaud Vera's Sporting spirit alot as well... This tournament would not have been possible without her participation.

Back to the auction, I got to say that the amount of money raised was a astonishing. But it's all for a good cause.

Masha was already very popular in Hong Kong last year, but Ferrero was even more popular than Masha and Federer.

I also read in the newspapers about very generous donations by Hong Kong richest (who's also Asia's richest man) businessman and well known Hong Kong movie stars and singers.

Yes, that is true. Hong Kong has one of the highest if not the highest donation per citizen percentage in the world. It's all good, just doing our part for the world....
