  • Something special is in the air tonight

    3/13/10 12:12 AM | James Munoz
    Something special is in the air tonight The Hit for Haiti relief brings together some of the game's greatest players to aid those in need in Haiti.

    Duke Ellington once said, "A problem is a chance for you to do your best."

    The situation in Haiti has galvanized some of the greatest in the game of tennis to come together for one night and try to raise money for Haiti earthquake relief. Roger Federer, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Rafael Nadal, Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf, Justine Henin and Lidnsay Davenport will compete in the Hit For Haiti exhibition presented by Oracle.

    The goal of this exhibition is to raise at least $1 million for the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development Fund.

    Bringing together some of the greatest names in the sport of tennis is never easy, but with such a worthy cause, it was academic. The event will be played Friday night at 7:30 pm PST and can be seen on the BNP Paribas website.

    The first exhibition match will have Martina and Henin competing against Graf and Davenport, followed by Nadal and Agassi versus Federer and Sampras. Like most exhibitions, this one promises to be a joy to watch for not only the play, but the show itself. Tennis royalty such as these greats are sure to give a great performance as they strive to entertain and fundraise.

    If you are interested in donating you can do so by texting “HAITI” to 90999 and a $10 donation will be added to your phone bill or donate directly at the American Red Cross Website.
