Arthur Ashe Kids Day

The United States Open doesn't officially get underway at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing until Monday but the United States Tennis Association will be the host for a full day of tennis and excitement for young children and families.

Arthur Ashe Kids' Day on Saturday at Flushing Meadows Park will be the site of games, musical entertainment, clinics and the chance to meet current tennis superstars. Previous U.S. Open champions Serena Williams and Andre Agassi, the 36 year old who will play in his final Grand Slam championship before retiring this year, will be present at the event.

Joining Agassi will be rivals James Blake, Andy Roddick and Anna Kournikova. Singing stars Teddy Geiger, Cheynne Kimball and Ne-Yo will represent the music portion of the day.

The event starts at 10 a.m. throughout various locations at the tennis center and conclude with a show at Arthur Ashe Stadium starting at 2 p.m.
