ESPN3 Presents the Williams Sisters in S. Africa 11/4; 'The Face Off' in Toronto, 11/16

ESPN3 will present live two special tennis events with some of the biggest names in the sport - a family affair in Johannesburg, South Africa, with Serena and Venus Williams on Sunday, November 4, and a doubleheader from Toronto on Friday, Nov. 16, with Serena facing Agnieszka Radwanska and Andy Roddick against local favorite Milos Raonic.

The Williams Sisters will meet on an indoor hard court in front of 4,000 fans at Ellis Park Arena in the capital of South Africa on Sunday, Nov. 4, at 7 a.m. ET. ESPN3 holds exclusive distribution rights in the United States. The 31-year-old Serena, currently ranked No. 3 in the world, holds a 13-10 advantage over her older sister including their last four matches. The two have not played in three years, since the 2009 WTA Championships.

Between them, Serena and Venus, 32 and currently ranked No. 24 in the world, hold 22 Major Singles titles (15 and seven, respectively) and teaming in doubles they have won 13 Major championships and three Olympic Gold Medals. Each has also won two Major Mixed Doubles crowns and each has earned Olympic Gold in singles.

On Friday, Nov. 16, at 8 p.m. from Toronto's Air Canada Centre, Serena and Agnieska Radwanska meet in a rematch of this year's Wimbledon Ladies' Championship. Serena took the three-setter, seen on ESPN, to start her immaculate summer, which later included Olympic Gold and the US Open.

Roddick, who carried the banner for American men's tennis for a decade before announcing his retirement on his 30th birthday during the recent US Open, will cross the border to meet Raonic, the 21-year-old rising star of Canada. The 6'5" hard server was the ATP's Newcomer of the Year in 2011 and is currently ranked No. 15 in the world.
