Geneva (Vocus/PRWEB) January 24, 2011

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) today appointed the World Cup-winning Spanish football goalkeeper Iker Casillas as a Goodwill Ambassador for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In this role, he will focus on issues affecting young people in developing countries, promoting poverty reduction, education and health.

Casillas is no stranger to the tremendous needs of the poor in this world, and has shown on many occasions that he can be part of the solutions. Twice now, he and tennis champion Rafael Nadal have organized Friends of Iker v Friends of Rafa sports events to raise money for those suffering from malaria in Mali and last December he organized with Luis Figo a football charity match in support of homeless people. He has also worked in Peru to raise awareness of the needs of children living in poverty.

While my job on the pitch is to prevent goals, my job at UNDP will be to help score them, said Casillas. Bringing attention to the poor conditions people are enduring around the world is essential to motivate action on the worlds pledges to improve their lives.

The MDGs are a set of eight globally agreed targets that seek to halve world poverty by 2015 by combating hunger, disease, illiteracy, environment degradation and discrimination against women. UNDP works in 166 countries around the world to create, realize and monitor each ones own MDG-based national development plans.

UNDP works with people and their governments around the world to end poverty with solutions that will last, Casillas said. Only with that kind of team approach can we win the battle against poverty, and I am proud to add my personal commitment to this work.

Casillas plays for the Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid and serves as captain for both the Spanish national team and Real Madrid. As captain of the national side, he led a young Spanish team to their first European Championship in 44 years, his first senior international honour. In 2010, he led Spain to their first ever FIFA World Cup and won the Golden Glove for the tournament's best goalkeeper.

We are thrilled to have Iker Casillas working with us to help countries reach the MDGs and defeat poverty, said UNDP Associate Administrator Rebeca Grynspan after presenting Casillas with his credentials. Iker is not only a role model for young people across the globe, but also a very committed partner in the need to raise awareness and create real opportunities to improve the lives of the most vulnerable.

Casillas is joining eight other UNDP Goodwill Ambassadors: four footballers, Ronaldo de Lima, Zinedine Zidane, Didier Drogba and the worlds number one female football player, Marta Vieira da Silva; tennis player Maria Sharapova; Spanish performer Antonio Banderas; Japanese actress Misako Konno; and HRH Haakon Crown Prince of Norway.

Twitter: @RafaelNadalFC twitter.com Facebook: Rafael Nadal Fans www.facebook.com Messi or Cristiano? "Messi is better than Cristiano for Barca and Cristiano is better than Messi for Real Madrid. We have to enjoy who probably are the best two players in the world and it is very fortunate that we have them in "La Liga". I, as a Real Madrid fan, enjoy seeing Messi, even though he is not in my team, and being lucky enough to see him every weekend, as it must be for Barcelona fans with Cristiano, but obviously I'd like to have Messi in Madrid".

NYC, New York (PRWEB) May 22, 2011

The 110th French Open, which is the second Grand Slam tournament of the season, will be a tennis tournament played on outdoor clay courts. It will run from May 22 through June 5. It will take place at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France, from May 22 to June 5, 2011.

Click here to watch 2011 French Open live online.

The annual two-week clay-court extravaganza begins today, with defending champ Rafael Nadal coming in as the No. 1 seed just ahead of the red-hot Novak Djokovic.

Djokovic is playing the best tennis of his life. He's traditionally more comfortable on hard-court surfaces, but the 23-year-old Serbian has already racked up a 61-18 record in 2011, including two titles - most recently, last week's Italian Open crown, where he defeated Nadal 6-4, 6-4. Nadal, meanwhile, is the king of Roland Garros, having won five of the last six French Open titles. He's nearly unbeatable on clay and finally appears to be close to 100-percent health.

Roger Federer, the former world No. 1, comes in ranked third and is looking to turn back the clock for one more run here. Clay isn't his preferred surface, but he is the last man to defeat Nadal here, winning the 2009 title. Ferrer will be dangerous at Roland Garros not only because of his doggedly consistent game, but also because the best-of-five-set format plays into his best attributes: his conditioning and his ability to concentrate, point after point, for many hours. After Nadal and now Djokovic, Ferrer is the one player who strikes fear in the hearts of his opponents. With his improved serve and rock-solid return game, Ferrer can beat anyone in the draw.

On the women's side of the bracket, neither Williams sister will be making the trip. Both Serena and Venus are sitting out due to injury. Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki will be looking for her first major title. She's never advanced beyond the quarterfinals here, but she's certainly one to watch these next two weeks. No. 2-seed Kim Clijsters has finished second twice, and does have the momentum from her recent win at the Australian Open. Defending champ Francesca Schiavone is seeded fifth.
