Here’s a better story than the Serena one I just posted. Listen to this news. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi will compete in a doubles “Hit for Haiti” exhibition at the Indian Well Tennis Garden on Friday, March 12.
The teams? According to the Indian Wells website Federer will team with Sampras to play Nadal and Agassi. That’s 44 total Grand Slams on the same court! Outrageous!
Early thoughts are the Federer/Sampras team should dominate. They have the serve and volley skills and the power. Nadal/Agassi have the better return game but Roger and Pete should prevail!
The event organizers which include the Oracle CEO Larry Ellison are hoping to raise $1 million for those affected by the earthquake in Haiti last month.
The match will be televised LIVE at 10:30pm ET on the Tennis Channel and I’ll be watching. What an excellent idea. Can’t wait.
