Exhibition a Success Especially for Atlanta's Young

September 2, 2008 09:54 AM
Under the watchful eye of former No. 1 Jim Courier, USTA Southern players Donald Young and John Isner battled for charity in the Sunset Showtime in Atlanta Wednesday, Sept. 10. Young's quick movement and consistent game was too much for Isner in their one-set exhibition. The evening of tennis featured a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary "Unstrung" about the US National Hardcourts in Kalamazoo, Mich., also known as "The Zoo."

Four-time Grand Slam champion Courier was in great comical form as guest umpire for the set between Atlanta's Young and former Georgia Bulldog and NCAA champion Isner of North Carolina at the Bill Moore Tennis Centerkno at Georgia Tech. Showing off the humor and biting insight that makes him one of the best television broadcasters, Courier needled the players and joked with the crowd. His tennis advice was a treat for the packed house, who probably appreciated it more than the players he was humorously correcting from the chair.

The event benefited the Atlanta Youth Tennis Foundation.
