BNP Paribas Showdown

 The BNP Paribas Showdown is a one-night tennis exhibition held at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan New York City, United States each February or March since 2008.

Officially known as the BNP Paribas Showdown for the Billie Jean King Cup, the event format is a single elimination tournament with four players competing in a one set, no-ad scoring semifinal, with the winners advancing to a best-of-three set final with regular scoring.

The BNP Paribas Showdown serves as the kick off to the tennis season in North America, as it is part of one of the United States Tennis Association's grassroots initiative Tennis Night in America.

The 2008 edition, called NetJets Showdown, faced Roger Federer and Pete Sampras, which eventually won by Federer. In 2009 and 2010, the tournament was named Billie Jean King Cup, in honor of retired female player Billie Jean King, and featured the four Grand Slam women's singles winners from the previous year. In 2011, the four players were American male legends Ivan Lendl, John McEnroe, Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras.
