The Madisen’s Match tennis exhibition will once again bring some of the biggest American stars to Fort Myers, Fla., when Sam Querrey, Taylor Fritz, Robby Ginepri and the Bryan brothers will play to raise money for cancer research on March 16 and 18, 2019.
These players and others will compete in the Golisano Children’s Hospital Pro Tennis Classic on Monday, March 18 at the Suncoast Credit Union Arena at Florida Southwestern State College. Before taking the court, the players are scheduled to appear along with famed coach Tom Gullikson at the Madisen’s Match Gala & Auction and the Legends Tennis Camp, both of which take place March 16 at the elegant Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club.
“It’s exciting and heartwarming at the same time to see these pros turn out for this one-of-a-kind showcase,” Madisen’s Match founder Duane Chaney said. “It’s a thrill to see players of this caliber in the same place, and it’s even better knowing it’s all going to help Southwest Floridians suffering from cancer.”

The event has raised nearly $1 million since its inception in 2009. Since 2011, funds have gone exclusively to Barbara’s Friends, which is the Golisano Children’s Hospital Cancer Center Fund, and The Brain Tumor Navigator Program at the Lee Health Regional Cancer Center.
Fritz burst onto the ATP World Tour as an 18-year-old in 2016, reaching the finals in just his third tournament. Querrey rose to a career-high No. 11 ranking earlier in 2018 and reached the Wimbledon semifinals in 2017. The identical-twin Bryan brothers are the most decorated doubles team of all time, and Mike Bryan added two more grand slam titles to his own count this year while pairing with Jack Sock. Ginepri rose to No. 15 in the world at one point before retiring in 2015.
“The group we have coming this year is an outstanding mix of legends and up-and-coming talent,” Chaney said. “It’s a rare opportunity to see world-class tennis pros in Southwest Florida.”
The gala and tennis camp take participants a step further, giving them a chance to mingle and receive one-on-one instruction from the Madisen’s Match celebrities.
