Becker to face McEnroe at Queen's
Boris Becker will mark the 20th anniversary of his first Stella Artois Championship title by playing John McEnroe on grass for the first time.
Becker, who won at Queen's in 1985 when he was 17, will face McEnroe in a special challenge match on 12 June.
McEnroe said: "I always wished I could play Boris on grass, so it's nice to get out there before it's too late.
"I don't play any match that isn't competitive, especially against Boris - I had a lousy record against him."
The 46-year-old added: "I lost to him most of the time in my career and one of my goals has been to turn that around."
Becker, 37, beat McEnroe eight times in 10 matches between 1985 and 1992.
Defending champion Andy Roddick, three-time winner Lleyton Hewitt, and Britain's Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski have already announced their intention to play the Stella Artois tournament, which gets underway on 6 June.
