Re: Evert/Kournikova & George Bush Sr. defeated Davenport / Lovitz 62

Evert Classic wraps up in Delray Beach Published Tuesday, November 7, 2006

By Mario Sarmento
Sports Editor

Tennis and laughs were the order of the day in the final matches of the Chris Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic Sunday.

The 17th edition of this event raised a record $1.4 million to fight drug abuse and assist neglected and abused children in South Florida.

Evert teamed up with former President George H.W. Bush to continue their winning streak at the event. Evert and Bush defeated Lindsay Davenport and Jon Lovitz 6-2.

Anna Kournikova came in as a substitute for Evert up 3-1, and promptly hit Bush in the back with her second serve.

"I am so sorry," Kournikova said. "I was just so nervous playing with the President for the first time."

Bush ended the match with a crosscourt forehand winner at the net.

The weather was markedly better than Saturday, when wind gusts of up to 25 miles per hour made conditions difficult.

Sunday, a crowd of 4,091 watched the final four matches of the event.

Gayle Silverman has been coming to this event with her husband Harry for the last six years.

"It's so exciting seeing President Bush," Silverman said. "Jon Lovitz, I thought he was pretty funny. Chris Evert does a good job, good cause."

The final match featured four professionals: Davenport, Jim Courier, Evert and Taylor Dent.

Courier and Evert rallied to defeat the current pros 4-3 (5-0 in tiebreaker) to conclude this year's festivities.

Earlier in the day, actor Scott Foley and Taylor Dent defeated Lovitz and Vince Spadea, 6-3. Kournikova and Bush lead singer Gavin Rossdale topped Jim Courier and actress Maeve Quinlan, 6-4.

Highlights from the event will be televised on ESPN2 in January.

Anna's serve is still the same it seems.

Bush is over 80 right? Credit to him for being in such a good shape.

Re: Evert/Kournikova & George Bush Sr. defeated Davenport / Lovitz 62

But most people on-hand knew Evert was always the best dirty joke teller on tour, and her penchant for the playfully provocative came in the form of a charity auction for a night out with a bevy of bathing beauties at the Sports Illustrated swimsuit party. Par for the course, at a recent tennis charity function, Evert made a point of bidding to win a "Dinner With Anna Kournikova" so that her three sons — ages 15, 12, and 10 — could revel in having dinner with the sultry tennis player, which is a pretty exciting evening for guys not old enough to drink.
But it was Kournikova who surely was hoping for a stiff drink on the final day of play at the Evert Pro Celebrity Classic. After Evert pulled former President Bush up to a 3-1 lead over Lindsay Davenport and Jon Lovitz, she announced that a special surprise substitution would be made. Evert would "rest" as Anna Kournikova came in to play with the former Commander-in-Chief. Well, that was an exciting twist of dynamics for an already marquee match up. But in only her second point on court, Kournikova beaned the 41st President of the United States right in the backside with her first serve. The crowd, and Chrissie on the sideline, burst into laughter as Mr. Bush assured everyone he was not hurt. Ms. Kournikova was so embarrassed, she outstretched her racquet to Evert as an invitation to please serve out the rest of the game for her, but like a good coach, Evert nodded enthusiastically to keep playing…as Bush placed his racquet behind his back to avoid further beatings from Kournikova’s stinging racquet. She was able to finish out the game without further incident.

In a particularly enjoyable exchange, Davenport and Kournikova entered into an extended forehand volley drill, until Lindsay tapped the ball toward elder Bush, who — in arguably the first unplanned moment of the point — lobbed a perfect response over the net-hugging team for a clean winner. Whatever you may think of his politics, Mr. Bush’s smile is contagious and conveys a man who enjoys the days of his life immensely. The crowd was non-partisan in appreciating the feisty 82-year old.

ESPN2 will air abbreviated taped coverage of the event on January 24, 2007.

How should you be? You should be like a rocky promontory against which the restless surf continuously pounds.
It stands fast while the churning sea is lulled to sleep at its feet. I hear you say,
"How unlucky that this should happen to me."
But not at all.
Perhaps say instead how lucky I am that I am not broken by what has happened,
and I am not afraid of what is about to happen.

I wonder if the Secret Service wanted to use that ball in the back as a reason to jump Anna...

If Venus or Serena had done it, the Secret Service would definitely have delivered a beatdown.....

Did I say that out loud? I'm sorry.
