First, before we go any further, we love every sport that spices up the social agenda, however, Tennis just happens to rank up on our favorite sports. Since that confession is out of the way, we always look forward to several events during any year – and in this case it just happens to the 2015 BNP Paribas Showdown.
In case you don’t know about this event, here are the deets to get you acquainted and help support our love and enthusiasm for the event and sport – in general.
Established in 2008, this is a one -night exhibition match officially starting the Tennis season in the USA. It is usually played by selected Tennis professionals compromised of men and women – single matches and/or doubles in both categories.
The BNP Paribas Showdown is also known as World Tennis Day and is a bit shorter than a normal game scoring – and best out of three sets wins.
During our attendance in 2014, we had the chance to watch John and Patrick McEnroe vs Bob and Mike Bryan – and the final match was viewing Novak Djokovic play against Andy Murray.
This year in 2015, the BNP Paribas Showdown welcomed Monica Seles (USA) against Gabriela Sabatini (ARG) with a final score of 8-5 (Sabatini).
The last match featured Roger Federer (SUI) play with Gregor Dimitrov (BUL).
The match surprisingly concluded with a win of two sets from Dimitrov – as it played out in the final score of 6-2 (Dimitrov); 6-1(Federer); and 7-5(Dimitrov).
Shortly thereafter, we had the opportunity to listen in on both players as they highlighted their perspective on the showdown, and their future expectations as we begin multiple Tennis events leading up to the US Open.
