McEnroe to Reunite with Bjorkman in Stockholm

John McEnroe will return to the ATP circuit in October when he partners Jonas Bjorkman at the if… Stockholm Open. McEnroe stepped out of retirement earlier this year when he and Bjorkman won the SAP Open title in San Jose – McEnroe’s 78th career doubles title.

“It feels extremely good to return to if… Stockholm Open, which has always been one of my favorite tournaments,” McEnroe said. “I’m also looking forward to playing with Jonas and our goal is without a doubt to win the tournament.”

McEnroe made his last appearance in the Royal Tennis Hall in 1985. He won the Stockholm doubles title in 1979 with Peter Fleming, and has captured the singles crown on four occasions (1978, 1979, 1984 and 1985).

If… Stockholm Open was founded in 1969 and will hold its 38th edition of the event from October 7-15, 2006.

Tunga namn klara för If… Stockholm Open

Fem av världens femton högst rankade spelare kommer till start i Skandinaviens största ATP-turnering, If… Stockholm Open, som avgörs den 7-15 oktober i Kungliga Tennishallen.

- Det känns fantastiskt roligt att kunna välkomna världsnamn som Rafael Nadal, James Blake, David Ferrer, Tomas Berdych och Jarkko Nieminen, kommenterar Tournament Director Pelle Hjertquist.

Startfältet i årets If… Stockholm Open är det bästa på flera år med ett helt koppel av högintressanta namn. Såväl unga stjärnskott som etablerade tennisess kommer till start i den anrika turneringen. I det yngre gardet återfinns världstvåan Nadal, det tjeckiska superlöftet Berdych och svenskhoppet Robin Söderling. Det äldre gardet representeras av bland annat svenskarna Jonas Björkman och Thomas Johansson samt tennisikonen John McEnroe, som ställer upp i dubbelturneringen med Björkman.

- Vi har länge haft målsättningen att locka både unga och etablerade världsspelare till Stockholm. Med både Nadal och McEnroe på plats väntar en tennisfest som sent kommer att glömmas, garanterar Hjertquist.

Många klassiska if… Stockholm Open-spelare kommer i år tillbaka till Kungliga Tennishallen. Bland de tidigare vinnarna märks förutom titelförsvararen James Blake, den femfaldiga mästaren John McEnroe samt svenskarna Björkman och Johansson även Paradorn Srichaphan och Mardy Fish. Spelare som Feliciano Lopez, Nicolas Massu och Olivier Rochus är också välbekanta för If… Stockholm Open-publiken.
