Where There's a Will, There's a Goofy Overhead Smash

Swedish world tennis champ Mats Wilander once said, "He'll never beat Roger Federer unless he becomes a little more aggressive." Only a true tennis fanatic would know he was talking about Lleyton Hewitt, but even the most casual observer would know that the advice certainly wouldn't apply to Will Ferrell, who has gamely stepped up to the baseline for The Global Tennis Showdown, a benefit for the Swedish School of Los Angeles and the Sweden House where Wilander and Ferrell will smash and lob for a good cause. After the match, enjoy the Dan Band pay disrespect to songs you once loved. A barbecue dinner and live and silent auctions await big spenders.
