The 7th Annual All-Star Charity Tennis Event took place on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016 at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami. The event was hosted by Grand Slam legend and Hall of Famer Cliff Drysdale, while headlined by Serena Williams, currently ranked number one single’s women player in the world and 21 time Grand Slam winner. Wimbledon finalist and former World No. 5 (2014) Eugenie Bouchard, World No. 8 Japanese standout Kei Nishikori, World No. 9 and French No. 1 Richard Gasquet also all participated to support the cause.
In part sponsored by Pioneer Investments, the gathering gave 24 amateur players the opportunity to test their skills in a qualifying tournament in which the winners earned a chance to play alongside the top professionals.
Proceeds from the 7th Annual All-Star Charity Tennis Event supported First Serve Miami.
