For 26 years, Chris Evert has brought celebrities and tennis pros to Delray Beach to play and raise money and, this weekend, she’s continuing the tradition with big names like American Pie actor Jason Biggs, tennis great Martina Navratilova, Oasis‘ love rat Gavin Rossdale, Growing Pains’ Alan Thicke and Chelsea Lately’s Chelsea Handler.
Saturday started out with four matches that mixed celebrities and tennis pros at the Delray Beach Tennis Center. And celebs even took turns umpiring: Funny man Dennis Miller called the shots during the second match!
Evert looked every bit the elegant hostess in a one sleeved dress with a cut out across her chest.
Incidentally, Evert appears to be single still years after she divorced ski hall-of-famer Andy Mill to marry, then divorce, golf great Greg Norman.
Gala tickets were $750 each.
The event is to raise money for Florida families to help them keep their children drug and neglect free.
The weekend event continues today with matches and culminates with a match that pits Rossdale and Evert against Deadwood‘s Timothy Olyphant and Navratilova.
Jon Lovitz will be the umpire.
The actor is making his first post-Justified television appearance in the Fox comedy starring Rob Lowe and Fred Savage. He’ll play fellow actor and “frenemy” to Lowe’s character, Dean Sanderson, in the Thanksgiving episode, ‘Giving Thanks, Getting Justice.’
In the half-hour series, the Parks and Recreation alum portrays one of TV’s most popular lawyers who decides to move back to his hometown of Boise, Idaho and join his real-life attorney brother Stewart (Savage) at his firm, despite having no actual degree or license to practice law.
Lowe tweeted the news out Friday morning:
Really excited to work today with the latest great actor to join #TheGrinder, Timothy Olyphant. Our love for him is… Justified!
