JEN AND SERENA here in Richmond, Va on 9/17/04!!




Six-time Grand Slam title winner Serena Williams will play an exhibition tennis match against comeback star Jennifer Capriati on Friday, Sept. 17, at the Alltel Pavilion at the Virginia Commonwealth University Siegel Center.

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is presenting the event as part of Anthem LIVE!, a fund-raising event to benefit VCU's Massey Cancer Center. The format of the match will be the best two out of three sets.

"Serena Williams and Jennifer Capriati are two of the biggest stars in the tennis world right now," Tom Snead, president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Southeast Region, said in a statement. "To have them come to Richmond on the heels of the Olympics and U.S. Open to help support the Massey Cancer Center and its fight against cancer is itself phenomenal. It shows these two women are superstars off the tennis courts as well as on."

One hundred percent of ticket proceeds will go to the Anthem Cancer Research Endowment Fund at Massey Cancer Center. Last year, Anthem LIVE! featured Jay Leno and raised more than $500,000 for the fund.

"Massey is honored to be the beneficiary of Anthem LIVE! and this celebration of life," Gordon D. Ginder, M.D., director of Massey Cancer Center, said in a statement. "Because of this kind of support from our community, Massey can attract some of the nationís leading physicians and scientists specializing in research and care. Our goal is to develop and deliver the best possible treatment and prevention available, and ultimately find the cure for cancer."

Williams received the 2003 Celebrity Role Model Award for her work with cancer awareness. After an eight-month layoff due to knee surgery, she won her third straight crown in an unprecedented 50 minutes at the WTA event in Key Biscayne, Fla., on April 3. She was ranked No. 1 among the 2003 Top 10 Most-Marketable Female Athletes by Sports Business Daily.

Capriati achieved fame in 1990 when, at the age of 14, she became the youngest player to be ranked in the Top 10. A year later, she was the youngest player to reach the semifinals at both Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. In 2002, Capriati received the ESPY award for Comeback Player of the Year and the U.S. Sports Academy Female Athlete of the Year award after winning the Australian Open Grand Slam title for the second consecutive year.

Both Williams and Capriati have won the Laureus Sports Award for Female Athlete of the Year in 2003 and 2002 respectively.

Tickets for Anthem LIVE! will go on sale to the public on Tuesday, April 20, and will be available through all TicketMaster outlets. Ticket prices will range from $15 to $100. In addition, box seats will be available by calling Massey Cancer Centerís development department at (804) 828-0034. The price of box seats for six is $2,500 and for eight is $3,000.

Come back EVENTUALLY Cappy!! Ok this clearly was written back in a day when I still had faith..

Did one of these ladies relitives battle cancer or something? They both seem to do a lot of work with it.

Jennifer is a good friend of Corina Morariu's. During their 2001 French Open quarter final, Jennifer actually walked around with a sign on TV that said "get well soon". In her victory speech after she won the title, she even mentioned Corina.

Both Jennifer's mother and brother have had cancer scares.


This is the best match-up on the tour at the moment, how great to get them playing together to raise money for charity.

Plus I think both of these have too much pride to fix it so whoever wins the first set wins the match!!!

Rather than do that why don't exhibition matches have third set champions tiebreaks like the Eastbourne Cup did?
