French Open finalist Henri Leconte will put his famous left-handed swing into action this summer when he joins fellow tennis legends at the Brodies Invitational at Gleneagles.
The former World No. 5, who notched up nine singles titles and 10 doubles titles during his illustrious career, will take part in the two-day event that will see former British No. 1 Tim Henman, former World No. 1 Thomas Muster, former World No. 8 Mark Philippoussis and eight-time ATP World Tour doubles champion Colin Fleming, competing in the only Scottish date on the prestigious ATP Champions Tour on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 June.
Tennis fans will be treated to a display of experience versus youth when the all-star line-up shares the court with some of Scotland’s most promising young tennis talent. Former Fed Cup Captain Judy Murray has also confirmed her return to support the event, alongside Tennis Scotland and Scottish sports broadcaster Alison Walker as MC.
Henri Leconte said: “I’m really looking forward to playing at the Brodies Invitational, Gleneagles is a beautiful location to play. I know the Scots are very passionate about sport, so I’m sure it’ll be a great atmosphere.”
Established in 1997, the ATP Champions Tour spans the globe with former champions competing in tournaments in cities including London, Brussels, Palma de Mallorca, Mexico and Delray Beach.
Nick Scott, managing partner elect of Brodies, said: “I’m delighted that Henri Leconte will be joining us at Gleneagles for the very first time, it’s great to add another legend to what is already an exciting line-up of tennis stars. I’m sure his performance will be much anticipated by fans and business people alike.”
