How was Arthur Ashe Kid's Day??

I was just wondering how it went???

Any highlights or who won the most money for their charities.

I missed it because I had to work and I would have felt like a retard taping it. So, was it fun?!?!

I'd like to know, too

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

Agassi dethroned Anna K as the skills champ he made $35,000 for his charity Andrei and Roddick played a tie-break and Anna was the umpire

funny moment: mcEnroe supposedly calls Anna on her cell phone, Andy protests and asks how come he doesn't have her cell # Then Anna says "Mandy wouldn't like that" then Andy started signing Living La Vida Loca and says "Oops wrong song" (refering to Enrique Iglesias)

Also, Agassi challenged Andy by saying "Show me what you got!" Andy Replies with "Hair" .............Agassi said Andy played like a girl...........he won too anyways.

Overall it was a fun kids day as usual, its different not seeing hingis or serena there looks like they improved at hitting those targets!

Sounds pretty damn funny actually!!!

Andre is always great on Kid's Day and Andy singing "Livin' La Vida Loca" sounds hilarious. I wonder if anna got it?

Anyway, was the music good? Monica and Daniel Bedingfield, right?

Wait - we all forgot something! The skills challenge is an exhibition setting! Anna is an incredible player when it isn't a real match I am being serious, too. Many people have talked about how great Anna is in practice, and a skills challenge is an extension of that. It's when there is real pressure than Anna folds.

its true, when there's no pressure, she is brilliant to watch seeing how many times she can hit those darn things. ironically, serena williams doesn't do as well in these challenges when she did them the last 4-5 years

it was good, after monica sang she said, "get well soon venus and serena." and then she talked about how she got into tennis because of the williams sisters and how serena invited her to watch the 99' us open final.
