Organizers have confirmed that British No. 1 Andy Murray will be one of the main attractions at the BNP Paribas Tennis Classic at London’s Hurlingham Club. The exhibition event supersedes Wimbledon, and will be used as fine-tuning by the participating players.
The event will feature a number of the world’s top players participating in a series of grass-court exhibition matches in preparation for the Wimbledon Championships the following week. Senior veterans, such as Tim Henman, Goran Ivanisevic, Mark Philippoussis and Pat Cash, have also been confirmed for the event.
“Playing at the Hurlingham Club last June was the perfect way for me to warm up for Wimbledon.” Murray said. “It’s a great setting and I’m looking forward to playing again this year.”
The BNP Paribas Tennis Classic at London’s Hurlingham Club takes place between June 17-20.
