Victoria Azarenka recently announced her first-annual charity exhibition event, to be held March 1 in Los Angeles, and a couple big-time names are slated to take part.

The WTA tour's No. 1 star, Serena Williams, and flashy shotmaker Gael Monfils, both friends of Vika, will join the fray, with more pro players to be announced later. (One has to think Sloane Stephens won't be among them. Exhibit A: This.)

It seems likely that Monfils, never short on stylish points, will aim to please, as he does in this fantastic montage of his greatest hits:

Who would you like to see join the fray in L.A.? The Spin leaves you with that question, and will go now to dream of a Serena-Monfils mixed doubles pairing. I bid you adieu.
