The Champions Tennis event is the ATP Champions Tour’s longest-running tournament and features former and current players to compete in one of London’s most iconic locations.
The Royal Albert Hall plays host to the Champions Tennis and has done since 1997.
In previous years, players such as John McEnroe, Pete Sampras, Bjorn Borg, and Andy Roddick have all featured at the event.
In 2019, a brand new format was seen at the event which included three teams competing for the myWorld Champions Tennis Trophy.
The teams were led by Greg Rusedski, Tim Henman and Goran Ivanisevic.
At this year’s event, fans will be treated to watching rising British tennis star Emma Raducanu play fellow Romanian Elena-Gabriela Ruse.
Raducanu quickly rose through the ranks this summer after she reached the last 16 of Wimbledon before going on to win the US Open, becoming the first ever qualifier to do so.
