Djokovic to play charity match in Rio

Rio de Janeiro: World No.1 tennis player Novak Djokovic has agreed to play an exhibition match here in November against retired Brazilian star Gustavo Kuerten.

This will be followed by the Serb`s involvement in a soccer game with underprivileged children in a Rio slum the next day.

"He will be here between the 15th and 19th of November," event organiser Dejan Petkovic said.

"There will also be a clinic on a pitch that the local council is going to install," he said.

Kuerten won the French Open three times and reached the top of the men`s rankings in December 2000. Djokovic has won five Grand Slam titles.
