The Westside Tennis Club will refill its champions cup in November. The Houston club, which hosted the ATP Tour's Tennis Masters Cup the past two years, will host the inaugural Champions Cup, an eight-man senior event, November 10-13th.
Five former Grand Slam champions — John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Jim Courier, Goran Ivanisevic, Mats Wilander — as well as Mikael Pernfors, Aaron Krickstein and Todd Martin, who will make his senior debut, are scheduled to compete in the round-robin event. The event is produced by InsideOut Sports & Entertainment, the company Courier co-founded, in conjunction with Westside owners Jim McIngvale and his wife Linda McIngvale.

"I am excited to announce that InsideOut Sports & Entertainment and Jim and Linda McIngvale will be bringing the first annual Champions Cup to Houston's Westside Tennis Center," Courier said. "Westside will host some of the greatest names of tennis' Open Era. Come join us for four days and three nights of tennis up close and at its entertaining best."

The Champions Cup is presented by Stanford Financial Group, which sponsor's the Delta Tour Of Champions, the ATP's Champions Tour.

They have also got something kind of interesting going on in July, too. I left my paperwork at home, but I'll post it later. Wish I had read over it to see what it was about. From what I remember, they will have Martina Navratilova, Chris Evert and a few others. I think I saw James Blake's name, too.
