Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, and Serena Williams were just some of the players who helped kick off the Madrid Open this weekend, participating in a charity event with other Spanish athletes to raise money for the Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas' foundations.

The athletes goofed around on court, playing a number of different sports, including tennis, a combination of tennis and soccer (during which Serena comically avoids the soccer ball like the plague) and even volleyball.

Photos and highlights from the event below.

Here's a clip of Rafa and Serena playing mixed doubles against Agnieszka Radwanska and Casillas. That's ... a bit of a mismatch:

And here is Serena staying as far away from the soccer ball as possible:
