The 3-time Grand Slam champion Carlos Alcaraz has been confirmed for an exhibition in September in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Spaniard will face local Frances Tiafoe in a men's match, while there will be a women's match between 2017 US Open finalists Madison Keys and Sloane Stephens.
The exhibition will take place at the Spectrum Center, home of the Charlotte Hornets basketball team. It is scheduled for December 6th, once the regular ATP season is over, considering that the Davis Cup Finals will end on November 24th.
"All eyes will be on Charlotte as some of the biggest names in tennis face off in an event unlike any other," said Charlotte Sports Foundation executive director Danny Morrison. "Expect unparalleled, elevated hospitality that only the Queen City can provide and, of course, elite competition in a sport that's captivated the world."
The recent French Open champion expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to compete in the exhibition. "I am appreciative for the opportunity to compete in the Charlotte Invitational this December," Alcaraz said. "Fans can expect an incredible night and we look forward to providing an unforgettable experience for all in attendance."
