Order of play confirmed for Champions Tennis

The action takes place at the Royal Albert Hall this winter.

The order of play for this year’s Champions Tennis tournament has been confirmed.

The final event of the ATP Champions Tour returns to the Royal Albert Hall, London from Thursday 28 November 2019 to Sunday 1 December 2019.

The iconic London venue will host some of the biggest names in Tennis with former world No.1 Juan Carlos Ferrero, former British No.1 Greg Rusedski, Grand Slam finalist Mark Philippoussis, the recently retired Marcos Baghdatis, Thomas Enqvist, David Ferrer, Goran Ivanisevic, Martina Hingis, Tim Henman, Tommy Haas and fan favourite Mansour Bahrami all set to compete.

The four-day tournament promises fast-paced action and world-class tennis from the legends.

Now in its 23rd year, the tournament will follow a brand new format for 2018. Players will work together in three teams as they compete for the Champions Tennis trophy.

Each team will be led by fan favourites Rusedski, Henman and Ivanisevic, who will also be joined by two other legends.

Each day will consist of an afternoon and evening session, featuring four matches per session; two competitive singles matches, one competitive doubles match and one exhibition doubles match.
