ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- Ivan Lendl will play his first exhibition since he retired from tennis 16 years ago.

Organizers announced Tuesday that the first Caesars Tennis Classic will be played April 10 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

Lendl will play former nemesis Mats Wilander, while Andy Roddick will face recently retired Marat Safin. A third match will be announced later.

Caesars says it will donate equipment to Arthur Ashe Youth Tennis and Education. The group runs programs for 6,500 children in various cities, including Atlantic City, Camden and Philadelphia.
