White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

The Greenbrier, a classic American resort in the foothills of West Virginia’s Allegheny Mountains, will be host this fall to The Greenbrier Champions Tennis Classic, featuring a historic match between tennis legends Pete Sampras and John McEnroe.

“Building on the success of the star-studded The Greenbrier Classic, an official PGA TOUR FedEx Cup event, we are thrilled to be able to bring the biggest names in tennis to our extraordinary facilities at The Greenbrier this fall,” said Jim Justice, chairman and owner of The Greenbrier.

“I am really looking forward to my first visit to The Greenbrier. I’ve heard such great things about the resort, the history of the place and the Old White Golf Course,” said Pete Sampras. “And it’s always a pleasure to get on the court with John. It’s sure to be an entertaining match in a beautiful setting.”

The Greenbrier has been welcoming guests since 1778. Known as America’s resort, it encompasses 6,750 acres of undulating landscape that includes four golf courses and championship indoor and outdoor tennis facilities, including five outdoor clay courts and five indoor courts.

“I am looking forward to experiencing The Greenbrier for the first time and the challenge of playing against one of the greatest tennis champions of all time, Pete Sampras,” said John McEnroe. “I know Pete will be ready for me, so I will be working very hard to be able to bring my best tennis. Hopefully the people of West Virginia and the entire Greenbrier area will come out, support the event and have a great experience.”

On September 22, 2012, The Greenbrier will host this new tennis classic featuring two of the greatest living American tennis stars that together hold 21 career Grand Slam men’s singles titles. The one-day event will include a Pro-Am and a marquee match-up between McEnroe and Sampras.
