Friends of Sheva vs Celebrities in Kyiv?

Sheva is planning on a second meeting of His Friends vs Ukraine and World Celebrities, all profits from which will go to his own charity which was founded back in 2002 to help the Kyiv orphans.
The first such meeting was held in May 2005 in Italy (the celebs won 6:5). This time Andriy's planning to have it in Kyiv. All preparations are already under way.
The match will be held on July 6-9 this year.

Its quite possible that most of the people who took part in the 2005 event will be recalled. These include:

Friends Of Sheva: Gatuzzo, Maldini, Costacurta, Inzaghi, Boban, Leonardo, Marco Simone, Toldo, Vialli etc

Ukraine Celebs: Volodymyr Klichko (boxer), Andriy Medvedyev (tennis player), Vakarchuk (singer - group Okean Elzy), Tomenko (minister of sport) etc...

Davydenko is better,much more a all around player,medvedev was almost a clay player...though davydenko has yet to play a grand slam final he has a lot of quarters and semis,and anyway nowadays with federer no one stands a chance maybe apart from roland garros.

Medvedev should have won the 99 roland garros final.

Sure, and Agassi is even better Davydenko does not represent Ukraine, dummy. Anyways, he has a long ways to go to get to Medvedev's level and achievements; 2-3 decent seasons cannot overcome a 10-year career.

99 roland garros was a disaster: the thropy was in his pocket before it suddenly melt down.

Alright. p I have to say though a word about Larisa Savchenko, a product of Syxiv (Lviv), and, arguably, top 3 pair tennis player in the world in the 80th-90th.
