FLASHBACK: Belinda Bencic won her second title of the season last month in Abu Dhabi.


Tennis united, indeed. The game's biggest stars are coming together at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden for a mixed doubles exhibition that benefits a good cause.

Announced over the weekend, the Swiss pair of Belinda Bencic and Stan Wawrinka completes an eight-team field for Tuesday's charity doubles tournament at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, the proceeds of which will be donated to local charities. The past three editions have raised more than $300,000.

Bencic and Wawrinka join the seven other previously-announced pairs, which include six other duos of compatriots. World No. 1 and defending women's singles champion Iga Swiatek will partner with fellow Pole Hubert Hurkacz, while Emma Raducanu and Cameron Norrie, Maria Sakkari and Stefanos Tsitsipas, Jessica Pegula and Tommy Paul, and Leylah Fernandez and Felix Auger-Aliassime are also teaming up.

The event will be rounded out by US Open finalists Ons Jabeur and Casper Ruud, and reigning Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka and defending BNP Paribas Open men's singles champion Taylor Fritz.

The exhibition will be played in the Tie Break Tens format, which does not consist of games or sets; instead, teams will play a single tiebreak to 10 points; the winner is the first to reach 10 points, or win by a margin of two.

The main draw of the 2023 BNP Parbias Open begins on March 8.
