The two philanthrophic giants, Elton John and tennis legend, Billie Jean King, partnered together to host the Adavanta World Team Tennis Smash Hits at Villanova University in Philadelphia. Tennis superstars from today and the past, showed up to compete with the goal of raising funds for Elton’s AIDS Foundation, as well as the city’s local charity, ActionAIDS. $400,000 was raised when fans showed up to watch sports celebrities like Andy Roddick, Anna Kournikova, Lindsay Davenport and Patrick McEnroe play against each other in the name of charity, who were just as happy to be there to help the hosts of the event.
“Whenever I’ve played a tough match or have a good result, the first person who I get a text message from is Billie Jean,” Roddick said. “She’s been so good to me throughout my career.”
I think the best faces being made in these pictures or those of the fans. For example, this woman is LOSING HER MIND that Andy Roddick is standing so close to her. Thank God she brought her camera, otherwise, her girlfriends at work would never believe she was within throwing distance of him! YAY! Also, the guy in the pic of Anna Kournikova looks like he is professing his undying love for her, adding that, “All my friends are on the whole Maria Sharapova bandwagon, but I’m like, DUDE, I’m all about Anna.” That picture of Elton and Billie Jean is pretty adorable, since it just proves my belief that eventually, all old people start to look and dress alike. It’s been scientifically proven.
