McEnroe, Connors Headline Legends in Tampa; USTA FL Local Connect

July 19, 2012 10:57 AM
USTA Member Pre-sale: McEnroe, Connors, Courier, Wilander in Tampa Nov. 9

mediawall-champions-tour-2012Don't miss your chance to see Jimmy Connors, John McEnroe, Florida's Jim Courier, and Mats Wilander in the PowerShares Series Tour, coming to the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Friday, Nov. 9, 2012.

The four former No. 1s will play two one-set semifinals, with the winners battling in the championship match. The Tampa stop is part of a 12-city tour where the Top 3 finishers at the end of the season split a $1 million pool.

The four legends have 26 Grand Slam titles between them, with Connors and Wilander two of only five men to win Slam titles on hard, grass, and claycourt (along with "youngsters" Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andre Agassi).

"I think when I got in the game, and pretty much through my career, there were a lot of personalities and great rivalries in the game," McEnroe said. "I don't think it's quite that way right now. There just doesn't seem to be the depth. A lot of the Grand Slams are won by just a few of the guys. I'm glad that people still want to see us play."

USTA Members receive 10% off on $45 and $85 tickets when you buy two or more. Get your tickets now before tickets go on sale to the public. This offer ends this Sunday, July 22 at 10 p.m. EST.
