LOS ANGELES - Andre Agassi is among the tennis stars slated to play at a charity event hosted by the top-ranked doubles team of Bob and Mike Bryan.
The Bryan Brothers' All-Star Tennis Smash will be at the Sherwood Country Club on Sept. 27, and will benefit local and national charities.
It's the first event supporting The Bryan Brothers Foundation, set up by the twins who play for the U.S. Davis Cup team and will compete at the Beijing Olympics. The Bryans have won five Grand Slam doubles titles together.
Former No. 1 Lindsay Davenport and current top-10 player James Blake are also scheduled to appear.
The top draw is Agassi, who won eight Grand Slam singles titles before retiring at the 2006 U.S. Open.
"We were thrilled when Andre committed to play at our event," Bob Bryan said. "On the court, he's of course long been a hero of ours. Off the court, he's been a mentor to us as we've watched him build the Andre Agassi Foundation."

Organizations: Sherwood Country Club, The Bryan Brothers Foundation, Beijing Olympics Andre Agassi Foundation
