David Ferrer to Join Tennis With The Stars Event in Palm Springs
Cliff Drysdale Tennis and Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa are excited to announce that World No. 8 and one of the best returners in the men’s game David Ferrer will join the Tennis With The Stars event on March 10th in Rancho Mirage, CA.
The recent addition to the event's roster comes in the wake of Petra Kvitova's withdrawal from the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells and subsequently the Tennis with the Stars event.
Kvitova stated this morning "I'm really sad that I won't be able to take part in the Omni Resort event this year as I heard it's a really fun event! I love spending time in the desert during Indian Wells and I'm looking forward to hopefully being involved next year instead."
"We are sad that Petra will not be able to join us and wish her a speedy recvoery and great success on the court this year!" states Jerome Millet, Cliff Drysdale's Director of Tennis at Omni Rancho Las Palmas. "We are however, very fortunate that David will be participating, he is a phenomenal player and having a really strong start in 2015, and his recent on court battles with Kei Nishikori in Australia and Mexico promise a very entertaining exhibition when the two go head to head on the Rancho Las Palmas courts!
The evening also features World No. 4 Kei Nishikori, the Japanese tennis star who had a breakthrough year in 2014, 16-Time Grand Slam Champion Martina Hingis, former number 1 in the world Jelena Jankovic, and more special guests.
