The exhibition event pitted three of the reigning grand slam champions and the world’s top-ranked player against one another in a one-night only, single-elimination event, which celebrated tennis legend King.
“Venus and I were so excited to play at MSG,” said Serena. “It was really intense.”
French Open champion Ana Ivanovic, Wimbledon winner Venus and US Open champion Serena were joined by world number one Jelena Jankovic, who was a replacement for the injured Maria Sharapova.
Serena defeated Ivanovic, while Venus ousted Jankovic in one-set semi-finals.
