Novak Djokovic didn't get to wear his tuxedo to the Wimbledon Champions Ball on Sunday night, but he put it to good use 24 hours later. Alongside his girlfriend, Jelena Ristic, Djokovic hosted a charity gala for the Novak Djokovic Foundation at The Roundhouse in London on Monday, an event that featured an impressive guest list of celebrities.

Goldie Hawn and daughter Kate Hudson took to a makeshift tennis court at the event, as did Boris Becker and Jeremy Piven. Also in attendance were Naomi Campbell, Sarah Ferguson (who serves as the charity’s Global Ambassador), Sir Richard Branson, Gerard Butler and newly minted Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli.

The event raised almost $1.8 million for the foundation, whose mission is to provide assistance to children in disadvantaged communities in Serbia. Djokovic hosted a similar gala event after the U.S. Open last September that raised $1.4 million.

After the jump, check out video and more pictures from the event.

In his opening remarks before the live-auction portion of the night, Djokovic joked, "Yesterday we had the Wimbledon finals and for all of you who didn't watch, I lost. I'm a loser."
