Tennis Legend Michael Chang To Replace Pete Sampras In The Champions Shootout At Wells Fargo Center On November 2

 Philadelphia, PA – The PowerShares Series announced today that Michael Chang will replace an injured Pete Sampras in the Champions Shootout to be held at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday, November 2.

 
Chang, a French Open and Davis Cup Champion, will join John McEnroe, Jim Courier and Pat Rafter in the four-man shootout event. McEnroe will face Courier in the first semifinal while Chang will face Rafter in the second semifinal, with the winners meeting in the championship match.

 “I am excited to play in Philadelphia,” said Chang. “The field is very strong but I've been training and will be ready to take on Pat and hopefully John or Jim in the finals.”

 
Sampras injured his right calf muscle while practicing in California earlier this week and is receiving treatment. “I am disappointed to be unable to defend my title in Philadelphia,” said Sampras. “I injured my calf in practice yesterday and my doctor advised me that I should not play this Friday.”
