Alexandr Dolgopolov, Alejandro Falla and Ross Hutchins made a special appearance in the kitchen of the DoubleTree By Hilton Kuala Lumpur, the players’ hotel, on Monday morning in order to bake cookies to help the Dignity for Children foundation, which provides better education for disadvantaged children.
Dolgopolov, who is fourth seed at the Malaysian Open, Kuala Lumpur, said, “This was good fun. I had never baked cookies before. Luckily the chef was there to help us”
Falla, who could meet Dolgopolov in the second round if he beats Rajeev Ram, admitted, “We hope that the people will like our cookies and buy plenty of them so the foundation can do even more for the children.”
The cookies, which were labelled and signed by the players, will be on sale at the ATP World Tour 250 tournament site and the hotel.
“We love to support the Dignity for Children foundation,” admitted Hutchins. “I sometimes cook at home together with my girlfriend. I like to bake cakes and cookies for tea-time. But of course those cookies here are much better!”
