Roger Federer’s Locker Achieve Top Bid

Lockers Auction

Many ways to charity, maybe that’s what caused the ATP to conduct auctions lockers the players who qualified to perform at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals have ended last week.

The lockers, personally stocked with signed memorabilia by each of the top eight singles players including Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer, were on display in the Fan Zone at The O2 across the eight days of the tournament. The results of the auction total reached $ 57.261, where the lockers Roger Federer – the tournament winner, sold for the highest price of $ 17.800, followed by Rafael Nadal lockers which sold at a price of $ 14.800.

Save the Children, the charity partner for the tournament, will receive 50% of the proceeds from the auction, with the other 50% going to each player’s chosen charity.

Chief Executive of Save the Children, Justin Forsyth, commented: “Save the Children is thrilled by the response to the locker room auction at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. The lucky winners of the auction now own a piece of tennis history. We want to say thank you to everybody who placed a bid. All of you contributed to raising a whopping $57,261 which will change the lives of some of the world’s poorest children.”

The charity auction was run online through www.BarclaysATPWorldTourFinals.com/Charity over the past 10 days, enabling fans all over the world to bid on their favourite player’s locker. Five of the winning bids came from Japan, whilst two came from the U.K. and one from Switzerland. A total of 499 bids were placed on the eight different lockers.
