Cowboys Stadium to host Serena, Sharapova, Roddick

Cowboys Stadium to host Serena, Sharapova, Roddick


ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)—Jerry Jones has found another unique way to use his massive Cowboys Stadium. Tennis, anyone?

Six days after Wimbledon, the $1.2 billion stadium will host a pair of best-of-three matches, featuring Serena Williams against Maria Sharapova, and Andy Roddick facing John Isner.

The showcase, to be held on July 10, is called the Cowboys Tennis Slam and it is being billed as the inaugural event.

In addition to the NFL, Cowboys Stadium already has hosted the NBA All-Star game, a Manny Pacquiao boxing match, and soccer. Bull Riding is on the agenda this summer.

While the building can hold more than 100,000 people, it will be configured to hold 20,000 for the tennis matches.

Jerry Jones has plenty of it. He knows how to make money, he knows how to advertise, and he knows how to show off. The guy is a business man through and through. Good job on his part. Netting Serena & Maria, along with 2 of the most recognizable US Male tennis players today is very well played on Jerry's part.

Oh and for the record I have been to the stadium to see the Cowboys play my Falcons, and words can not describe how amazing that place is. If you go it will honestly spoil you.

Re: Cowboys Stadium to host Serena, Sharapova, Roddick

Maria didnt go to NYC in March for $250,000
So these guys are paying big bucks.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
