Former British No 1 Greg Rusedski and 2003 Wimbledon Champion Mark Philippoussis are the latest players to confirm that they will compete in the Brodies Champions of Tennis event in Edinburgh.
The pair will join John McEnroe, Tim Henman and Goran Ivanisevic at the first ever ATP Champions Tour event in Scotland, which is to take place at the home of the Edinburgh Academicals from 20-23 June.
Rusedski is a two-time winner on the ATP Champions Tour and enjoyed an exciting rivalry with fellow Brit Henman during their time on the ATP Tour. The 39-year-old said: “I’m really excited to be heading to Scotland for the Brodies Champions of Tennis,” he said. “Edinburgh is a beautiful city and it’s great that there is going to be an ATP Champions Tour event there. Scottish tennis is on such a high at the moment with Andy Murray doing so well so I’m sure it will be a fantastic event with great crowds. I can’t wait.” Philippoussis, who is enjoying a renaissance on the ATP Champions Tour after having to retire from the main Tour prematurely due to injury, said: “It will be my first time playing in Edinburgh, I’m very excited.”
