Matthew Pryke, Tournament Director of the new Tie Break Tens tournament said: “Tie Break Tens will be everything that people love about tennis, in a night of ten-point tie-breaks. It will be fast-paced, fun, but also super-competitive, and we believe it is a format that can be enjoyed by players, spectators, tv viewers, media and sponsors.
“We are thrilled that Andy Murray has agreed to be part of the field in our first event. With Tim Henman still in such great shape, it will be fascinating to see how he and the other champions get on against Andy, David Ferrer and Kyle Edmund in a short sprint to ten points. We are using this event to launch the format, and plan to stage further events around the world in 2016 and beyond.”
He said: “It’s nice for me to be able to play one more time in Britain before the end of the year, and this is a really interesting format which should be a lot of fun for everyone involved. Tie-breaks are always exciting, so to have a whole night of them is going to be great. Plus, the Royal Albert Hall is an iconic venue, and I’m looking forward to playing there for the first time.”
IMG, who own Champions Tennis are confident that the new format will add to the strong tradition of the event, which is now in its 19th year.
Charlie Grave, Managing Director of Sponsorship at IMG Tennis added: “Tie Break Tens is an exciting new format which we are confident Champions Tennis spectators will enjoy on Saturday evening, 5th December. We are expecting record crowds throughout the week, so to be able to add an event like this is the icing on the cake.”
