During the event we will honor the professional career of tennis legend Nick Bollettieri and his contribution to the game and sports in general.
Considered by many to be one of the best tennis coaches of all time. Nick Bollettieri has changed the way the game is played and taught at every level.
He founded the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy - now IMG Academy - with a focus on intense physical training, total immersion and ongoing competition among the most talented players in the world.
Nick has helped shape the careers of Andre Agassi, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Jim Courier, Boris Becker, Monica Seles, Anna Kournikova, Tommy Haas, and other tennis champions.
His accomplishments have been imitated but never equaled. Now in his 80s, he's still going strong developing the next crop of young champions and working to bring tennis to inner-city children.
