KISSIMEE, FL, USA - The 21st Mylan WTT Smash Hits presented by GEICO, an all-star charity tennis event co-hosted by Sir Elton John and Billie Jean King, will take place on Sunday, November 17, 2013 at the HP Field House at ESPN Wide World Of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort.

The event benefits the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) and Hope and Help Center Of Central Florida, and has been running since 1993 - the previous 20 editions have raised over $11.5 million.

Two format is simple. There are two teams of tennis stars, one coached by Sir Elton John and the other by Billie Jean King (incidentally, they are 10-10 in their head-to-head). WTT co-ed format is used - so one set each of men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles, and mixed doubles - and sets are first to five games with a nine-point tie-break at 4-all. It's no-ad, and let serves are in play.

The list of players competing at this year's event is impressive - Venus Williams, Marion Bartoli, Taylor Townsend, Vicky Duval, Andy Roddick, John Isner, Jean-Julien Rojer and Robert Kendrick.

It's an action-packed, star-studded night of tennis every year - and there's also a pre-match live auction, which includes an Elton John signed piano bench. For more info visit www.wttsmashhits.com.
