Kasatkina, Gauff, Rogers support animal adoptions

Daria Kasatkina, Coco Gauff and Shelby Rogers enjoyed special moments with adoptable puppies at last week’s Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic.

Each year, the tournament partners with local service organizations to give back to the community. One of these is an animal shelter, the Humane Society Silicon Valley. HSSV offers pet adoptions, affordable spaying/neutering, vaccinations, microchipping services, pet care services and education programs to enhance the human-animal bond. They were scheduled to bring adoptable puppies to the San Jose tennis event for all quarterfinalists to walk on with.

After winning the singles title at the 2022 Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic, Daria Kasatkina gave a victory speech that included all of the usual hallmarks, thanking her team, sponsors, and on-court staff.
