Joining Williams are Mixed Doubles Grand Slam titleholder Richard Gasquet, Wimbledon Championships WTA titleholder Sabine Lisicki, 2013 Australian Open Mixed Doubles titleholder Jarmila Gajdosova, youngest ATP top 100 Borna Coric, ATP World Tour Doubles titleholder and Pinoy pride Treat Huey and World No. 8 in men’s singles and team captain Mark Philippoussis.
