Anyone for Tennis?

Last month, tennis fans got a chance to see Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal join legends Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi for a charity doubles match benefiting earthquake victims in Haiti. The crowd expected a great match. Instead, they witnessed Agassi and Sampras exchanging sarcastic barbs while Federer and Nadal watched in awkward silence.

But this weekend, Federer and Nadal will play for real at the finals of the Sony Ericsson Open at the Crandon Park Tennis Center. Federer looks to win his third Ericsson title, while Nadal will gun for his first. The tournament features the world's top ATP men's and WTA women's players, including Andy Roddick; last year's men's champ, Andy Murray; and everybody's favorite, Venus Williams.
