The beautiful Greenbrier Resort hosted the Sixth Annual Greenbrier Champions Tennis Classic this weekend.
“It’s just amazing, I didn’t get to play on the court last year because it was raining. The crowd is amazing and I just love being on the property. It’s an amazing place to be,” said retired professional tennis player, James Blake.
The tennis classic featured famous tennis legends such as: Pete Sampras, James Blake, Venus Williams and Martina Hingis.
The event kicked off with an autograph session for fans to meet their favorite tennis player, which was followed by singles matches that started at noon.

I love the people, resort and to be associated with The Greenbrier is an honor. I’m honored and hope to be back next year.”
Sunday’s events will focus on the mixed doubles match between the four players. This event is a fun filled weekend of exciting tennis activities.
