You get one guess as to where we want to be on February 28, 2011. That’s right: Madison Square Garden for the BNP Paribas Showdown!
It was announced this week that the Showdown, part of the grassroots initiative “Tennis Night in America,” will feature a best of three set match between Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi and a first-to-eight-games set between John McEnroe and Ivan Lendl.
We were in the stands at MSG for the 2010 Billie Jean King Cup (pictured above), and already can’t wait for the respite from wintertime with a little tennis in the Garden! (And we can’t help but wondering if we’ll get a replay of the last time Sampras and Agassi met – rivalry still in tact, accompanied by more than a few fighting words.)
Tickets go on sale on September 27, 2010.
