LONDON, Aug. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Three days before the start of the US Open in New York City, the panel will debate the topic, 'Beyond the Baseline - What can tennis do to improve lives in Africa?' The debate will feature Stacey Allaster, the Chairman and CEO of the WTA, as well as Lorne Abony, the Chairman and CEO of Mood Media, and a member of the ATP's Competition Committee. They will be joined by Justin Gimelstob, a former player, who is now a tennis broadcaster and a member of the ATP's board, and Janine Handel, the CEO of the Roger Federer Foundation. Bill Macatee, a broadcaster for CBS Sports and The Tennis Channel, will host the panel.

Credit Suisse and the Roger Federer FoundationIn 2009, Credit Suisse started a long-term partnership agreement with Roger Federer. As part of this collaboration, Credit Suisse provides support for the Roger Federer Foundation (RFF), which promotes education projects for children mainly in southern Africa. Over a period of ten years the Roger Federer Foundation receives one million dollars every year. Thanks to this partnership with Credit Suisse, a 10-year initiative providing support in early childhood was launched in Malawi in 2011. Over 50,000 children between the ages of four and six will receive help in preparing for their transition to primary school education. The Foundation's local partner is the NGO ActionAid Malawi. Credit Suisse provides regular updates on this new initiative in Malawi through the documentary series "Growing up in Malawi":
