By John Evenson

Delray Beach is known for being a hot spot for tennis, but on Saturday it was a who's who of tennis. Tennis legend Chris Evert invited some of her closest friends, both professional tennis players and television stars, t the Delray Tennis Center for the 24th annual Chris Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic.

"There's so much pressure to play in front of people when you're not a professional athlete," says Elizabeth Shue, star of the CBS show CSI, "so I like trying to see if I can try to overcome that."

The weekend of tennis highlighted by a Charity Gala helps raise money for Evert's charity to help prevent drug abuse and neglect. Since 1989 the event has raised more than $20.6 million.

Other celebrities who took part include comedian Jon Lovitz and Scandal star Scott Foley.
