Agassi, Graf will return for Richmond benefit
Richmond Times-Dispatch Aug 6, 2006
For those who were unable to see Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf perform their magic on the court when they were here in December, Genworth Financial is providing another opportunity.
Agassi, who has announced that he is retiring from the pro tour after the U.S. Open, and his wife, Graf, helped sell out the Siegel Center in 2005. They will join two other players Dec. 8 for the second annual Genworth Children's Advantage Classic at the same venue.
The event will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will include two matches, an eight-game, pro-set mixed doubles and a best-of-three sets men's singles.
In last year's exhibition, Agassi and Graf were joined by Anna Kournikova and Andy Roddick.
The 2005 affair raised more than $500,000 for at-risk children in the Richmond community. This year's event will be used for the same benefit.
Tickets, which will range from $35 to $125, will go on sale Sept. 12 and will be available through the Virginia Commonwealth University box office and all TicketMaster outlets. --John Packett
