With a week to go until the Statoil Masters Tennis at the Royal Albert Hall, Elton John and Billie Jean King have selected their teams for finals day on December 7, 2014, when a special Mylan World TeamTennis charity match will be held.

The charity match Ė Mylan WTT Smash Hits presented by Walgreens and AmerisourceBergen Ė will pit Team Billie Jean against Team Elton, with proceeds from the night going to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
