Spotted: Andre Agassi at Stanford Shopping Center with junior player from Menlo Park
Tennis legend Andre Agassi teamed up with the Swiss watch brand Longines and jeweler Shreve & Co. on yesterday (11/30/11) at the Stanford Shopping Center to host a fast serve contest, followed by a Q&A with USTA junior players to address the importance of education.
Twenty of the top ranked female junior players from the USTA’s Northern California division took part in the competition. Twelve-year-old Elena Van Linge from Menlo Park was the talented young tennis player with the winning fastest serve.
She’ll be flown to New York City to compete in the Longines Future Tennis Aces on the Road to the French Open against the top ranked girls ages 10-12 of the USTA Eastern Division in April 2012. These young tennis stars will compete for a grand prize trip to Paris to play on the famous clay courts at Roland Garros with 16 players from around the world. The two finalists of the tournament in Paris will get the privilege to rally with another tennis legend, Steffi Graf.
