Wimbledon finalist Maria Sharapova will join world number one Caroline Wozniacki in Japan in September to take part in charity events for victims of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck the country in March.

The tennis stars will arrive in Japan ahead of the Pan Pacific Open on September 25 and, along with French Open champion Li Na, will meet children from the Fukushima Prefecture, where the nuclear power plant suffered a massive meltdown following the disaster.

“I was deeply saddened by the terrible disaster,” said Li. “I continue to think about you during these difficult times.”
