The USTA announced a series of expanded fan enhancements and programming for the 2009 US Open. I’m sure his fans will be happy to learn that Benjamin will host a tribute to former U.S. National Champion Pancho Gonzalez on Saturday, September 5, 2009.
“Pancho Gonzalez Tribute: On Saturday night, September 5, special guests including actor Benjamin Bratt will host a tribute to former U.S. National Champion Pancho Gonzalez on-court in Arthur Ashe Stadium. The tribute will celebrate Gonzalez on the 60th anniversary of his second consecutive victory at the U.S. Championships and will include a video presentation highlighting Gonzalez’ life and tennis career. Gonzalez family members, as well as a number of former players and Hispanic community leaders, will be in attendance.”
