Rafael Nadal, Ana Ivanovic to play in Richard Branson's event this week

While Novak Djokovic is back to Belgrade to play in the Davis Cup final against the Czech Republic this weekend, Rafael Nadal is already in the Caribbean for Richard Branson's Necker Cup.

The Necker Cup is an exclusive Pro-Am event held on Sir Richard Branson’s private island Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands held on November 12-16th. If the Necker Cup is not exciting enough for you, then it has to be Super Bowl to be held in February next year in New Orleans. To get yourself prepared for more winning moments, visit Super Bowl XLVIII Bets.

Back to the Necker Cup, some of us may not be too familiar with the event. Sixteen (16) ATP/WTA Tour Players/Legends are paired up with sixteen (16) amateur teams of all levels to compete in the fun tennis event. A handicapped scoring format is implemented to make it competitive for every player. Each team consists of one pro and up to two amateurs. Teams will compete to win their bracket and earn a chance to play in the Necker Cup Finals.

Of course besides playing tennis, participants also get to do a lot of island activities.

Kevin Anderson undergoes LASIK vision correction

"#Nomorefoureyes" as he puts it in his Tweet today.

Kevin Anderson decided to ditch his contact lenses and glasses and "go under the knife" to correct his vision.

The South African is absent from the Davis Cup match this week. Last year, he has defended his decision to skip the tournament citing financial concerns, along with the risk of injury, as the reasons for not playing.

Meanwhile Frenchman Benoit Paire paid a visit to the dentist. He'll be cheering for his countrymen as he didn't make the Davis Cup team.
