Jill Craybas, Monica Seles to play exhibition in Newport

An exhibition match featuring tennis legends Monica Seles, Tracy Austin and Gigi Fernandez, and Rhode Island native and recently retired WTA Tour player Jill Craybas has been added to the schedule of events for the International Tennis Hall of Fame’s annual Hall of Fame Tennis Championships and Rolex Hall of Fame Enshrinement weekend.

The women’s doubles exhibition match will take place on Sunday, July 13, at 11 a.m. at the International Tennis Hall of Fame, preceding the finals of the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships. While the Hall of Fame hosts the men’s tournament annually, this exhibition match will mark the first time that a women’s tennis event has been played in Newport in many years.
