Champions Tennis at the Royal Albert Hall is the season ending finale to the ATP Champions Tour. Former Grand Slam Champions, World No.1’s and national icons compete in one of London’s most famed and iconic venues. Champions Tennis has welcomed a host of the sport’s biggest names and personalities to play competitively in both singles matches and entertaining doubles matches, with previous players including John McEnroe, Pete Sampras, Bjorn Borg, Pat Rafter, Goran Ivanisevic and Andy Roddick.

Last year welcomed the return of former Grand Slam champions John McEnroe and Mats Wilander, the ever-popular Mansour Bahrami, Tim Henman and debutant Xavier Malisse. Champions Tennis 2016 ultimately saw Fabrice Santoro defeat Malisse for the title.

Whilst the crowds are treated to high quality tennis and entertainment in a breath-taking environment, players also feel privileged to play in such a unique and atmospheric arena.

In the event's 21st year, some of the most decorated players in ATP World Tour history made their way through the field to set up an exciting final. And Juan Carlos Ferrero beat another former World No. 1 in Marat Safin 6-3, 6-4 to claim his second ATP Champions Tour title of 2017.
