American Express Co., a sponsor of the U.S. Open, is running a sweepstakes that will pit a man and a woman against tennis stars John McEnroe and Billie Jean King for a shot at $1 million each.

For the top prize, the contestant must return a serve from the stars into a target area in the opposite court. There's a $10,000 consolation prize just for being selected.
