Step aside Mad Butcher, there's some new beef in town! Powerhouse tennis sisters Serena and Venus Williams will be taking on NZ's own All Black brothers Julian and Ardie Savea in an exhibition charity match before the ASB Classic on Sunday January 1.

Most of us will know the Savea brothers for their freakish abilities in Rugby, but will they be able to handle the jandal against the greatest doubles combination the tennis world has ever seen, the Williams sisters?


The exhibition doubles match, which ASB Classic director Karl Budge says will be a "mix of sibling doubles and mixed doubles", will take place at Stanley St with all proceeds from ticket sales going to the Kaikoura earthquake fund.
