Tie Break Tens, the new short-form tennis format, is set to stage its first-ever US event at New York’s Madison Square Garden in March 2018.

Serena and Venus Williams will both compete in the all-women event, which represents the fifth tournament of the Tie Break Tens series.

Felicity Barnard, CEO of Tie Break Tens, said: “We’re thrilled that Serena and Venus are competing in the first Tie Break Tens to be played on US soil, in such an iconic venue.

“Hot on the heels of a sell-out men’s tournament in Melbourne this week, it’s clear that Tie Break Tens is fast becoming a regular fixture in the Tennis calendar.”

The first-ever Tie Break Tens competition was held in 2015 in London’s Royal Albert Hall and the concept has grown in popularity since. Events have also been held in Vienna, Madrid and – most recently – Melbourne.

Venus Williams said of the new tennis concept: “It’s unlike anything we’ve seen in tennis before and it helps bring in new fans to the sport.”
