NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 16: (L-R) Lyle Lovett, John McEnroe, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Justine Koons and Jeff Koons attend the 2013 Riverkeeper's Fishermen's Ball at Pier 60 on April 16, 2013 in New York City.
The JMTP Benefit night is a highlight of the year for me and for the Johnny Mac Tennis Project ... My commitment is stronger than ever to the youth of New York, and just as Bjorn and Andre helped make the evening special in years past, getting to compete against Jim again will, I hope, pump people up about American tennis - past and future.
Jim Courier has meant so much to American tennis, and we couldn't be more pleased that he and the Texas Wild will be the opponent for this special night ... To have two of our country's all-time premier players and tennis ambassadors in Jim and in our own Captain and leader, John McEnroe, will make for a very competitive and entertaining evening, but most importantly will ultimately help so many children in New York.More quotes »
