LONDON, UK – Fresh from their triumph in Ghent, helping Aegon GB to a tenth Davis Cup title, Andy and Jamie Murray and Kyle Edmund will all be at the Champions Tennis at the Royal Albert Hall.

The draw, made last week will also pit former British No. 1 and World No. 4 Tim Henman alongside another former World No. 4 James Blake, in the evening session with Jamie Murray set to play doubles in the afternoon and evening session on Wednesday.

On Saturday, Andy Murray will help launch the inaugural Tie Break Tens format of quick-fire tennis. Henman, Edmund and World No. 7 David Ferrer are also on the line-up with two more players to make up the field, one qualifying from the Champions Tennis field.

Each of the ten matches at Tie Break Tens will be contested over a first-to-ten-point tie-break with a round robin format of three players. The prize is a cheque for £250,000!

This year, Champions Tennis will feature Aegon Crowd Call – a unique line-calling system where spectators hold up cards which read ‘in’ or ‘out’!
