The clinics started at 9 a.m. followed by a free lunch with Mats.

Wilander hit the courts with players of all ages in the afternoon as the crowd watched on.

Following the clinic there was an exhibition doubles match with Wilander partnering with Ashland's Julie Ditty against Park Pro Richard Williams and Huntington's Patrick Walker.
