Tennis stars from past and present have come together on a make-shift court in New York just days ahead of the start of the US Open next week.

The aim of the event, organised by sportswear maker Nike, was to celebrate the final Grand Slam tournament of the year.

Alongside the likes of Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Rafa Nadal were legendary stars Pete Sampras, and Andre Agassi who gave his thoughts who might win the trophy at Flushing Meadows:

“The way Roger (Federer) played last week, I mean he is timeless. He is ageless and timeless. I think the favorite going into the tournament is Djokovic, but I think it’s up for grabs.”

Agassi then focused his attention on the women’s tournament with his money firmly on the defending champion:

“If future occurrences are best predicted by past occurrences it’s hard not to think anybody but Serena.”

Novak Djokavic and Serena Williams go into the US final which starts on August 31 as the top seeds.
