Masters Tennis by Cunard (Royal Albert Hall)

I know theres a thread in exhibitons, but no-one checks it so:

Henman was due to play Goran Ivanisevic on Tuesday in an exhibition at the Masters Tennis, but surprise, surprise for the 3rd year in a row a player has withdrawn (Goran's 2nd time: pr*ck!) and Henman will now play none other than Swedish player Joachim Johansson.
I will try to get some photos, and am looking for the article now!

The two have never before played, so should be an interesting encounter.

From http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/4045339.stm :

Ivanisevic to miss Henman clash

Goran Ivanisevic has been forced to pull out of his showdown with Tim Henman at the Royal Albert Hall.
The Croatian has a hamstring injury that rules him out of Tuesday's scheduled showdown with the British number one.

Ivanisevic, who also missed last year's event through injury, will be replaced by US Open champion and world number 12 Joachim Johansson of Sweden.

Henman's exhibiton match takes place alongside The Masters Tennis.

The match will benefit Henman's charity Kids at Heart.

John McEnroe, Mikael Pernfors, Jim Courier, Richard Krajicek, Pat Cash, Michael Stich, Mats Wilander, Boris Becker, Thomas Muster, Sergi Bruguera, Guy Forget and Emilio Sanchez line up in The Masters.

The players will compete for a winner-take-all prize of US$100,000.

Re: Masters Tennis by Cunard (Royal Albert Hall)

The Official Website is yet to release an article on the Henman-Ivanisevic topic, but this is also interesting:

BBC BOOST COVERAGE OF ROYAL ALBERT HALL EXTRAVAGANZA 21st October 2004

Two days after Mats Wilander, winner of seven Grand Slam titles, became the fifth champion to qualify for The Masters Tennis presented by Cunard, the event was given an additional boost by the BBC. The host broadcaster, BBC television, has added an extra slot to its coverage of the ever-popular tournament that takes place at the Royal Albert Hall between the 30th November and 5th December. It means that the semi-finals of the ATP Delta Tour of Champions finale, which sees superstars like John McEnroe, Boris Becker and Jim Courier vying for a winner-take-all prize of $100,000, will be shown. The new broadcast will go out between 4.50pm and 6pm on Saturday 4th December. This will be on top of live coverage on Friday, Saturday afternoon Grandstand and Sunday, a sign of the BBC’s increasing commitment to this, the flagship event of the ATP Delta Tour of Champions. It reflects the increased stature of an event that began in 1997 and has grown year-on-year ever since. For the first time, in 2004, players are required to qualify for the tournament, which boasts a bigger field of champions than ever before and an extra day of action. Former World No.1’s Boris Becker, Jim Courier and Thomas Muster have already qualified. The field will total 12 with the addition of two wild-card invitations. As well as the competitive action, a world-class field of players will figure in doubles entertainment. In previous years, Ilie Nastase, Peter Fleming and John Lloyd have all taken part. The opening evening session of the event on the 30th November will also see a re-match between Britain’s Tim Henman and Goran Ivanisevic to aid the charity Kids at Heart. Henman and Ivanisevic have not played each other since their memorable Wimbledon semifinal three years ago. Tickets can be booked from the box office by telephone: +44 (0)20 7589 8212, or online at www.themasterstennis.com. Prices start at £25.00 (or £7.50 for restricted view seating). For accreditation requests, please contact: David Law e-mail: david@lawsports.net

He won the US Open?

Joachim will probably beat Tim, knowing his ineptitude at beating huge-servers.
