LONDON. Sweden's former men's world number one Stefan Edberg, who has not played competitive tennis since he retired 12 years ago, agreed to play on the Tour of Champions.
The 42-year-old six-time Grand Slam winner will play in the Trophee Jean-Luc Lagardere in Paris in September.
Edberg, who never won the French Open, said he was keen to meet up with some of his old rivals on the circuit.
"I retired from the ATP circuit 12 years ago and had often been asked to play on the Tour of Champions, but I had always said 'no' in the past," said Edberg.
"This time I decided to say 'yes' and I will play at the events in Paris in September and the Royal Albert Hall in London in December. They are beautiful cities and I am looking forward to seeing and playing against some of my old rivals."
