He may be getting on a bit, but McEnroe's still got it
The ATP Champions Tennis Tour returns to the Royal Albert Hall, giving fans a chance to see legends from the game battle it out just like they did all those years ago.
Big name stars expected at this year's event include the mighty McEnroe, Goran Ivanisevic, Mark Philippoussis, Pat Cash, Henri Leconte, Mansour Bahrami and Peter McNamara. Brit Tim Henman will be returning to defend his title, so expect some fireworks.
These players may be getting on a bit, but none have lost their competitive edge. They're in it to win it, and out to give tennis fans real value for money. Expect plenty of laughs too – Leconte and Bahrami never fail to raise a smile with their on-court antics during matches. You might even catch McEnroe roaring "You can NOT be serious" – rumour has it he's contracted to bellow it at least once per match.
What makes the event extra special, for both the players and the crowd, is the fabulous venue. The Royal Albert Hall, built almost 150 years ago, really is a rather special place and one of London's most striking pieces of architecture. What's more, its oval design lends itself perfectly to a game of tennis, with every spectator guaranteed a splendid view.
