Tommy Haas outgunned Andy Roddick in mens singles 5-2 to lead Team Elton to a 16-13 win over Team Billie Jean King in the WTT Smash Hits event last evening in Baton Rouge.

Over $640,000 was raised for the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Baton Rouge area AIDS charities.  More than $200,000 of the funds raised will stay in the Baton Rouge area.

In its 17-year history, WTT Smash Hits has raised more than $9.6 million for the EJAF and local charities throughout the U.S.

With Tuesday's win, Team Elton leads the overall series 9-8.
