Tennis Anyone?


Not to be outdone by Dubai's tower match, Toronto staged its own tennis friendly on Bay Street today as former top seeds Monica Seles and Chris Evert rallied infront of a lunchtime VIP crowd and onlookers.

The event was a leadup to the Rogers Cup which kicks off this weekend.

Newest leaf Jason Allison - he of the serve and volley game - was also on hand, teaming up with Evert for a game of doubles.

Evert and Seles each wore headsets and joked with Mercer and the crowd, including tales of a harrowing Air Canada landing at the airport last night.
