Senior exhibitions and tournaments
John McEnroe and Stefan Edberg will clash in Sweden in March 2012 after it was announced that the city of Stockholm is to stage an ATP Champions Tour tournament for the first time.
Former World No.1's McEnroe and Edberg will all form part of a spectacular eight-man field of players at the event, which will take place 13-16 March in the Swedish capital. The remaining six players will be announced in due course.
"It is fantastic news that the ATP Champions Tour is coming to Stockholm," said Tournament Director, Per Hjertquist. "Players like John McEnroe and Stefan Edberg are global stars and I am sure that the people of Sweden will be happy to see them in March."
The event will feature an eight-man line-up of players which will divide into two groups of four. Players will face off against their group rivals over a round-robin format. All players will feature in at least three matches, and the top player in each group will advance to the final on Friday 16th March.
"To have an event in Stockholm is great news for the ATP Champions Tour," said Tour CEO, Jan Felgate. "The players on our Tour are popular wherever they go and I know that they will enjoy playing in Sweden, which has such a rich tennis tradition."
