Pete Sampras vs. Jim Courier Miracle Match

Since someone we know has recently been diagnosed with cancer, I thought it was neat that Cami and I got hired to photograph the Pete Sampras vs. Jim Courier exhibition tennis match benefiting the Miracle Match Foundation and the MUSC Children’s Hospital. The event was held at the North Charleston Coliseum this last weekend. Not only was it great tennis…yes, these guys can STILL bring the heat…but it was also entertaining. Pete Sampras, arguably the greatest tennis player ever to have lived, and holder of the most Grand Slam Championships in the history of the sport, is normally a pretty shy guy. So to see him loosen up and have some fun with the crowd was just awesome. This first image was taken at a private Meet & Greet function before the match…what a grin!?! 🙂 On top of everything else, the entire event was for a fantastic cause. So if the Miracle Match Tour is coming to a town near you, make sure you attend. You’ll get a lot for it, and you’ll be giving to someone who needs it a lot.
