Can you tell me what is better than watching world class tennis players play tennis with each other and with celebrities to raise money for a good cause? Nothing! Ok, well they are some things but this is pretty high up there. Now I normally spend most days at the BNP Paribas Open but was able to sneak away to watch the K-Swiss Desert Smash held at the stunning La Quinta Resort (a short distance from the tournament) which raises money for the charity, Variety.
The day started out with a pro am tournament in the morning which then led to the exhibition matches featuring pros like Jack Sock, Sam Querrey, Fernando Verdasco, Bryan Brothers, Mardy Fish and Novak Djokovic. The event was packed with people sitting around the stadium court watching some fun filled tennis.
