Stefan Edberg and Britain's Tim Henman, currently ranked 5th in the ATP Champions race, will play an exhibition match on the 5th of December in London. The exhibition will be part of a big event, that will be held at the Royal Albert Hall from 4th to 8th December and will also involve other former champions like German Boris Becker and Michael Stich.
Tim Henman will have the chance to avenge the two defeats he suffered from Edberg in his last year of professional activity (1996). Stefan beat him the first time in a memorable match played in the 4th round of Flushing Meadow and lasted more than three hours, and the second time later that year in Stuttgart.
Henman, maybe the only expression of serve and volley tennis at the moment, will test himself against the man who is universally acknowledged as the master of this tactic in a match which will be absolutely a "must" for nostalgics of "sweet-touch tennis".

This time was for real. After the disappointment of last April, when an exhibition scheduled in Stockholm was cancelled for organization problems, the fans could finally enjoy one of the rare appearances of Stefan Edberg in the United States.
