ARLINGTON, Texas, May 27 (UPI) -- Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones announced Thursday his team's new stadium will host its first tennis event this year.

Maria Sharapova will play Serena Williams and Andy Roddick fill face John Isner in a pair of exhibition matches July 10.

Jones has lured a variety of sporting events to his stadium in an attempt to create long-range revenue for the mammoth building. The NBA All-Star Game was held there this year and the Super Bowl will be played in the stadium next season.

The 2014 NCAA Neb's Basketball Final Four is on the schedule for the stadium.

"This will be an exciting event for us to hold at Cowboys Stadium," Jones said. "We have seen the flexibility our new stadium has for holding spectacular events of all kinds. Being able to attract some of the best tennis players in the world under one roof for a night like this will be something special."
