"I would like to congratulate Elina Svitolina on her new foundation that will help children worldwide through the sport of tennis. Elina's efforts to help children in the US through the ACE Outreach Program at the Bush Tennis Center is especially important to me. I have made several trips to Midland to help support the work of the Bush Tennis Center and I have seen first-hand the positive impact on the kids in West Texas. I look forward to returning to Texas on March 18th to help Elina with a junior clinic at TbarM Racquet Club and to celebrate the launch of her foundation."
