2012 Daily Tennis News Wire -
Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have never been known as low goal setters and on July 14 at Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu Stadium  they will try to smash tennis single session attendance record. The two will play an exhibition to benefit Nadal's foundations and the Real Madrid (soccer) Foundation.

The stadium seats 80,000 people. The current record for attendance is the 35,681 fans that watched an exhibition between Serena Williams and Kim Clijsters at King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels, Belgium in July, 2010. That exhibition broke the previous record of 30,372 fans that saw Billie Jean King beat Bobby Riggs in the famous "Battle of the Sexes" in Houston in September, 1973.
