Published November 14, 2012 12:00
TORONTO, Canada - You can relive the Wimbledon final in Toronto this Friday night, as two of the WTA's brightest stars - and two of the ATP World Tour's brightest stars, as well - square off at the Sport Chek Face-Off, an exhibition event that will take place at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
The night will feature two marquee match-ups starting at 8pm: Serena Williams against Agnieszka Radwanska, then Andy Roddick against Milos Raonic. And before all of that, starting at 7pm, there will be some celebrity mixed doubles, featuring the four aforementioned players as well as CFL commissioner Mark Cohon, Canadian TV and radio personality George Stroumboulopoulos, Entourage star Adrien Grenier and CFL player and Bachelor Canada star Brad Smith, all mixing it up in some celebrity mixed doubles.
TSN's Gord Miller and Daniel Nestor - a former World No.1 doubles player and Canadian tennis legend - will be holding the fort in the commentary booth.
Gates open at 6pm, and in recognition of Cohon's participation and the CFL's 100th Grey Cup in Toronto on Sunday, November 25, a special offer of 20% off select ticket prices is extended to anyone wearing a CFL team jersey when buying tickets at the Air Canada Centre Ticket Office on event day.
The event will also be broadcast live on TSN, Canada's leading English-language sports channel. Live coverage will also be available on TSN Mobile TV and shown on the Tennis Channel and ESPN3's broadband airing in the US, as well as in Latin America, the Caribbean, Brazil, the Middle East, Oceania, the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa, all via ESPN's international properties.
