Jeff Mosier of the Dallas Morning News writes under the header “Venue shows its versatility with Tennis Slam” after Cowboys Stadium announced the creation of the new Cowboys Tennis Slam.
“Cowboys Stadium (right) has gained fame since opening last year by setting attendance records left and right for multiple sports,” Mosier notes. “Now it’s continuing to prove its flexibility…the stadium has already hosted football, basketball, soccer, boxing and bull riding.”
“This will be an exciting event for us to hold at Cowboys Stadium,” said Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. “We have seen the flexibility our new stadium has for holding spectacular events of all kinds and this event should be like no other. Being able to attract some of the best tennis players in the world under one roof for a night like this will be something special.”
The July 10 event features best-of-three set matches between No. 1 ranked Serena Williams and former No. 1 Maria Sharapova on the women’s side and former No. 1 Andy Roddick and John Isner in the men’s match. The court will be set up across the end zone at Cowboys Stadium, creating an intimate seating configuration for 20,000 fans.
