Roddick and McEnroe among tennis stars in Cedar Park

CEDAR PARK, Texas (KXAN) — A quartet of retired tennis stars, who remain among the biggest names in American men’s tennis, took to the court at the Cedar Park Center Thursday night as part of a one night exhibition series.

The PowerShares Series brought together Austin native Andy Roddick, John McEnroe, Jim Courier and James Blake for three one-set matches.

Roddick defended his home turf. The youngest player in the field defeated Courier 6-3 to win the fifth stop in a 12-city tour. Courier advanced to the final after beating McEnroe – still animated and competitive at 56 years old – in a tiebreaker.

The series continues in Little Rock, Arkansas, Friday and stops in Dallas on Saturday, with Mark Philippoussis replacing Blake.
