Wimbledon Star Pledges to Charity

Rising Wimbledon star, semi finalist Zheng Jie has pledged to donate any prize money she earns from the tennis Championships to aid victims of the China earthquakes.

Jie, a wildcard in the draw, is the first Chinese player to make it into a Grand Slam semi final, and she wants to make the most of it, telling a news conference that she plans to part with every cent of her earnings.

‘When I go back there after Wimbledon I will do more charity work and encourage more people to come and support the stricken region,’ Zheng Jie commented.
