Israel's top tennis players visited the children's department of Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba on Wednesday, making the most of the stormy weather that caused the postponement of the day's Israel Tennis Championship matches. Shahar Pe'er, Yoni Erlich (left) and Andy Ram, as well as Tzipi Obziler, Dudi Sela, Harel Levy, Noam Okun and Amir Weintraub handed out Hanukka gifts to the delighted children, including autographed Israel Tennis shirts. Play at the national championships in Ra'anana will resume on Thursday, weather permitting. Pe'er faces Julia Glushko and Obziler plays Chen Astrogo in the women's semis, with Sela to come up against Okun and Levy to face Weintraub in the men's last four. (Ran Poni/ITA)
