Tennis legend John McEnroe will replace Jimmy Connors in 40 Love: A Night of Empowerment Celebrating 40 Years of the Family Circle Cup, a special evening presented by Dove. Connors was forced to withdraw because of a hip injury, which requires surgery.
The event will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 7.
The evening will feature a reunion of the ‘Original 9’, including Billie Jean King and first-ever Family Circle Cup Champion Rosie Casals. Honorary coaches Billie Jean King and Virginia Wade will lead a star-studded World Team Tennis-style exhibition with former Family Circle Cup champions Martina Navratilova, Chris Evert, Tracy Austin, Martina Hingis and Rennae Stubbs, along with McEnroe and American standout Aaron Krickstein.
