Emma Raducanu is set to play mixed doubles next month as she will team up with fellow Briton Cameron Norrie at the Eisenhower Cup in Indian Wells. On March 7th, the 2023 Eisenhower Cup edition will be taking place in the desert.
For the first time, the Eisenhower Cup will feature mixed doubles teams. The Eisenhower Cup is a Tie Break Tens event as the winner is the first team that wins 10 points. For this year’s Eisenhower Cup edition, the organizers decided to try something new and have mixed doubles matches.
As a result, tennis fans will have a chance to see star ATP and WTA players teaming up.
Raducanu, Norrie confirmed as one doubles team
Here is a full list of the Eisenhower Cup player field – Iga Swiatek/Hubert Hurkacz, Maria Sakkari/Stefanos Tsitsipas, Jessica Pegula/Tommy Paul, Leylah Fernandez/Felix Auger-Aliassime, Aryna Sabalenka/Taylor Fritz.
One additional team will be announced at a later date. Tommy Haas, who serves as the tournament director in Indian Wells, is looking forward to the 2023 Eisenhower Cup edition. “We are thrilled that The Eisenhower Cup will return for a fourth time to serve as a meaningful charitable event to ring in two weeks of exciting action in Tennis Paradise.
Tennis fans will be treated to the brightest stars of both tours pairing up for a fun and unique mixed doubles event, and we extend our sincerest thank you to all players for their participation in supporting this great cause,” Indian Wells tournament director Haas said, per the tournament’s website.
As it was the case in previous years, all the proceeds from the Eisenhower Cup will be redistributed to local charities. It will certainly be a great festival of tennis as fans will have a chance to see some of the best players in the game competing in a very quick and short format.
