The War Against Cancer exhibition

Hi FWTT players,

Introduction

Since my mother has been fighting cancer, it has become one of my priority to raise money for that cause. That is why, after the US Open, I'll be organozing an exhibition called War Against Cancer. It will be played in Miami, Florida where the World Cancer Foundation head offices are located.

Tournament info

*16 players(14 pros and 2 juniors)

*The players will be divided in 4 round robin groups

*All four players in a group will play against eachother once

*Singles only

*Surface = Hardcourt

*In the round robin and 1/2 finals, players will play a best of 3 with tiebreak in third set

*In the final, players will play a best of 5 match

Money donated

*In every match, sponsors will donate 100$ per winners and 200$ per ace.

*All of ticket money will be donated


I ask every players who are interested to play, to sign-in in this thread. I'd like to take everyone but due to time, the first 14 pros and first 2 juniors will be selected. I really hope that a lot of the top players will be participating because people look up to you!

Thank you very much

Larissa Liashenko

This is a very noble cause. And Tiffani Eggert would really like to support it but she will be unavailable. Sabine Eggert is very eager to play, however, she may not have the star power draw you are looking for. If you choose, Sabine will play. If not, she understands.
