Men's Tennis Legends to Play Moscow

The biggest names in men's tennis over the last two decades, including Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors, will be returning to Russia next month for the second annual "Champion's Tour" Peter's Cup tournament held at Moscow's Druzhba arena from April 27 to April 30.


In addition to Borg (five Wimbledon and six French Open titles), McEnroe (three Wimbledon and four U.S. Open titles) and Connors (five U.S. Open and two Wimbledon titles), the draw also includes Guillermo Vilas of Argentina and Ilie Nastase of Romania.


Nastase's shotmaking earned him a reputation as one of the most naturally-talented players of his time, hindered only by his equally explosive on-court behavior.


Argentinian Jose Luis Clerc, American Roscoe Tanner, South African Johan Kriek and Briton John Lloyd will also be on hand to compete for the $250,000 in total prize money.


Tickets can be purchased at the Druzhba and Luzhniki booking offices and prices range from $10 to $500.
