The 10th annual World Team Tennis Smash Hits took place Thursday, Oct. 3 in the Pavilion at Villanova University. Sponsored by Advanta, proceeds benefited the Elton John AIDS Foundation and local AIDS charities, such as ActionAIDS and MANNA.

Sampras and Agassi, along with musical legend Elton John and tennis legend, Billie Jean King, were the stars of honor.

The night started with a celebrity doubles match with John and King on the court. Die hard tennis fans were left in suspense for the priceless match between Sampras and Agassi. The two fought it out in the very last event of the night. The match ended with a two game win for Agassi.
