Edberg to take on Henman


Henman lost to Edberg at the 1996 US Open

Stefan Edberg will roll back the years when he faces Tim Henman in a charity exhibition match at London's Royal Albert Hall on 5 December.
The two-set serve-and-volley clash during the Honda Challenge tournament will raise money for Henman's charity, Kids At Heart.

It will also give Henman the chance to record a belated victory over the two-times Wimbledon champion, who won their two previous encounters before his retirement.

Edberg, now 36, beat Henman in four sets in the last 16 of the US Open in 1996 and in straight sets in Stuttgart.

And the Swede, who won Wimbledon in 1988 and 1990 and triumphed twice at both the Australian and US Opens, is said to be in good shape.

Former Wimbledon winners John McEnroe, Boris Becker and Pat Cash will also be in action at the Honda Challenge.

Wow - you guys are on top of things. I -- Edberg fan to the max -- only heard about this news today and thought I would be the first to announce it on this board.

Has the event been confirmed?
I heard from one fan who wrote:
"There are unconfirmed reports that Stefan is playing charity exhib v Tim Henman at Royal Albert Hall in London on Dec 5-it's part of the Seniors'Tour event that's on at RAH at that time. Although we have the notice on teletext on our TV's, when I rang up to book a couple of tickets they said it was n't confirmed!! The phone no is 02075898212 I've booked a couple of cheaper tickets just in case though!!"

Today there was also a posting on a Swedish sports portal about this:

So, Stefan will play Becker in Denmark in Novemeber, Henman in London in December - me think he misses tennis :-)

Was always behind Stefan when he played Tim. Wish i could be there.
Unfortunately think Tim will win, but his game is no-where near as beautiful.
