Saudi Arabia is set to host an exhibition event in October featuring some of the sport's biggest names. Among those confirmed to participate are Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, rising star Carlos Alcaraz, and the newest Australian Open champion Jannik Sinner.[1]

Dubbed the "6 Kings Slam," the event in Riyadh will also showcase the talents of Daniil Medvedev and Holger Rune, making it a star-studded affair.

All players except Rune boast at least one Grand Slam title to their names. Djokovic, with a record 24 titles, leads the pack, followed closely by Nadal with 22. Alcaraz holds two titles, while Sinner and Medvedev each have one.

The announcement comes on the heels of Nadal being named an ambassador for the Saudi Tennis Federation, further solidifying ties between the kingdom and the sport.
