Henman to defend Masters title
Defending champion Tim Henman will return to the Royal Albert Hall for the AEGON Masters Tennis, which run from December 5th-9th.
South Kensington’s historic building staged the event last year, with the likes of Henman, Goran Ivanisevic, Mark Philippoussis and Fabrice Santoro joined by senior legends of the sport and tennis-mad celebrities.
Tim Lovejoy, Jamie Theakston, Denise Lewis and Lorraine Kelly contested the allplay Challenge Cup, while John McEnroe defeated Pat Cash in the final of the Legends singles bracket.
Henman, who defeated Thomas Enqvist in last year’s Champions Tour final, is looking forward to returning to the venue for the 2012 event.
“There’s nowhere in the world quite like the Royal Albert Hall to play tennis. It’s wonderful,” he said.
