Tennis great Andre Agassi has been confirmed to play at a charity match at the Sherwood Country Club in California in September.
The Bryan Brothers’ All-Star Tennis Smash will take place on September 27, and will benefit local and national charities. It is the first event to benefit The Bryan Brothers Foundation, an organization set up by the top-ranked doubles team of Bob and Mike Bryan, both of whom play for the US Davis Cup team and will compete at the Beijing Olympics next month.
“We were thrilled when Andre committed to play at our event,” said Bob Bryan. "On the court, he’s of course long been a hero of ours. Off the court, he’s been a mentor to us as we’ve watched him build the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation."
Former tennis champion Lindsay Davenport and current player James Blake are also scheduled to appear.
