With no tennis for nearly three months now, the players and fans are bored without some live action. To get rid of the tennis-less boredom, World Number four Sofia Kenin, Eugenie Bouchard, and tennis stars on the WTA Tour have decided to lock horns on June 23, 2020 in Charleston, USA.

The Credit One Bank exhibition event in South Carolina will be aired by Tennis Channel. The event will have the Grand Slam champions Victoria Azarenka and Sloane Stephens, Slam finalist Bouchard, reigning Aussie Open champion Kenin and Rio Olympics champion, Monica Puig.
Also, Amanda Anisimova, Jennifer Brady, Danielle Collins, Leylah Fernandez, and Ajla Tomljanovic are part of the draw.
The US Open champion Bianca Andreescu hasn’t stepped on the WTA circuit since WTA Finals 2019. It was all because of her knee injury. It led her to miss the Australian Open, wherein she was the clear favorite of the tournament and later the tour got suspended.
Presently, she’s eager to return to the tennis courts, and hopefully she gives her best to play in Charleston. Andreescu became the first tennis player to be born in the 2000s to win a Grand Slam.
The Belarusian ace Azarenka just played one match this year in Monterrey Open and lost in the opening round. She pulled out from tournaments in Australia due to some personal reasons and injuries.
