Pics of Anna and Tracy from tonight's charity match
cellularsouth Charity Challenge
World No. 1 doubles team and Memphis top seeds Bob and Mike Bryan found themselves on opposing sides of the net Monday night during the cellularsouth Charity Challenge with Anna Kournikova and Tracy Austin. Bob partnered Kournikova to a 7-6, 7-6 victory after an entertaining duel that entertained the enthusiastic crowd on hand.
At one point Bob fired a 130 mph ace by Mike. In the next game Austin’s serve was clocked at a more sedate 60 mph, prompting the former World No. 1 to ask aloud “Can we turn that thing off?”
Money raised from the event benefits the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center and the Katrina Relief Fund.
Tracy Austin looks more ready to return to the tour than Kournikova.
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
Just pray that neither Evert nor Austin ever finds out that you referred to the latter as Chrissy. I'd like to find out which of them gets more pissed off, though.
Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)
"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
