The one-night Tie-break Tens event will take place in Stadium 2 at 8pm on Tuesday, 10 March, with all tickets costing just $25, and proceeds going to local charities including Masimo’s Patient Safety Movement; Eisenhower Health; Bighorn Golf Club Charities; and Family YMCA of the Desert.

BNP Paribas Open Tournament Director Tommy Haas said:

“We are thrilled that The Eisenhower Cup will once again serve as a kick-off to the BNP Paribas Open and raise funds for local charities. A huge thank you to Rafa and all of these incredible players for taking part in such a fantastic event. What a perfect way to welcome everyone to another year in Tennis Paradise.”
