Khachanov's Charity Match Raises Funds for Artsakh Refugees

Khachanov’s Charity Match Raises Funds for Artsakh Refugees

Karen Khachanov, the former world No. 8, is currently navigating a rebuilding season after injuries disrupted his promising start to 2023. However, amidst his on-court challenges, Khachanov has remained committed to supporting causes close to his heart, collaborating with fellow tennis stars and legendary figures.

Khachanov’s Armenian heritage has been a driving force behind his philanthropic endeavors. Partnering with Homenetmen Glendale Ararat, he organized a “charity match” with Andrey Rublev, the 2023 ATP Fan Favorite Doubles Team, to raise funds for Artsakh refugees. The event, held between the BNP Paribas Open and Miami Open, raised an impressive $100,000.

“I’ve always expressed my support for Armenia and Artsakh,” Khachanov explained. “It’s important for me to be attached to this country.”

Khachanov’s support for Armenia extends beyond the tennis court. He frequently writes messages on the camera lens after match victories and has previously collaborated with Homenetmen Glendale Ararat.

In addition to his charitable work, Khachanov also had the opportunity to connect with tennis legend Andre Agassi at a gala dinner preceding the charity match. The eight-time Grand Slam champion shared his insights and advice with Khachanov, who was eager to learn from the icon.

“I was surprised by how much he’s into tennis,” Khachanov said of Agassi. “He knows everything about everybody. It was great to hear his advice and consider some changes.”

Khachanov’s commitment to both his sport and his philanthropic pursuits is a testament to his character. As he continues his rebuilding season, he will undoubtedly draw inspiration from the support of his fans and the causes he holds dear.
