On the courts of the US Open, on the morning of September 6th, USTA Serves held its 11th Annual Pro-Am. We welcomed 16 of the world’s greatest tennis champions and gave amateurs a unique opportunity to play alongside them.
Our annual event featured a doubles round robin format where amateurs traded backhands and returned serves with some of the best players in the world. It was truly a tennis player’s dream come true to experience what it is like to play with a tennis legend.
Our champions included Martina Navratilova, Tracy Austin, Michael Chang, Jim Courier, Robin Ammerlaan, Jimmy Arias, Pat Cash, Gigi Fernandez, Mary Joe Fernandez, Luke Jensen, Iva Majoli, Todd Martin, Cedric Pioline, Rennae Stubbs, Chanda Rubin and MaliVai Washington.
We are grateful to all of the participants and professionals who came out and supported us. They are true champions both on and off the court who believe in the future of tennis and education and who want to give kids ‘a better shot.’ The proceeds from this event will help USTA Serves fund college educational scholarships and program grants to community-based tennis and education programs throughout the country.
