ґOver 80 thousand fans are expected to pack Real Madrid`s home ground on June 14, making it the biggest crowd to watch a tennis match.
All the money raised from the event will go to the charity foundations of Nadal and Real Madrid, which both help children and young people, offering educational programs as a tool for social integration.
"Back to practicing, very happy because the Rafa Nadal Foundation`s event has been confirmed at Bernabeu," Nadal wrote on his Facebook page.
Novak Djokovic of Serbia is now World No.1, with his Spanish rival occupying the second spot in the WTA rankings.
The duo have played 30 matches against each other, with Nadal so far has a 16-14 advantage.
