Andre Agassi - Elton John Serves Up $1 Million To Charity After Tennis Tournament

SIR ELTON JOHN showed off his racket skills as he faced off against tennis legends Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf at a charity tournament in Pennsylvania on Tuesday (16Oct12).

The Rocket Man, a longtime fan of the sport, took on the former champions at his 20th annual World Team Tennis' Smash Hits showdown in Pittsburgh to raise money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

The event, which also featured Andy Roddick, Martina Navratilova, Mark Knowles and tournament co-host Billie Jean King, ended with an auction of Sir Elton's autographed piano bench, tickets to his Las Vegas show and a dinner date with him.

The match pulled in $1 million (£625,000).
