Evert and Navratilova to play in Charleston exhibition

Rivals and long-time close friends Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert will participate with John McEnroe and Todd Martin in the Family Circle Cup's Game, Set, Rock! exhibition on Saturday, April 9, at 7:30 p.m. Both singles and mixed doubles will be played. Tickets for the event--which also includes live music--will be available as a stand-alone session, are available through Ticketmaster and will also be sold (after the public sale) at the Family Circle Tennis Center ticket office.

Last year's Game, Set, Rock! featured Monica Seles and Anna Kournikova.

Evert and Navratilova appeared together in Charleston in 2008 for the Family Circle Cup's 35th anniversary celebration, during which they gave a lengthy and amusing joint interview to the sports press. Evert won the Family Circle Cup eight times, and Navratilova won it four time.

I enjoy your blog, Diane! As one of the official photographers of the Family Circle Cup, I'm looking forward to seeing Evert & Navratlova back in Charleston. McEnroe was fantastic last year (just posted a few pics on our blog at, and I think Todd Martin will be a treat as well!

Thanks so much, Chris. Nice photos, too! Come and introduce yourself at the FCC if you get a chance. I'm all over the place, but often at the media table.
