The exhibition event is set to return to The Hurlingham Club from June 21-26th. This will be the first time the Spaniard will hit the court following his record-extending 14th Roland Garros crown and marks the Serbian star’s first time playing at The Hurlingham Club in the classic.

The superstar champions join the tournament’s strong line-up, which includes Carlos Alcaraz, Casper Ruud, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Lleyton Hewitt, Xavier Malisse, Mansour Bahrami, Greg Rusedski, Radek Stepanek, Tommy Haas, Marcos Baghdatis, Laura Robson and Daniela Hantuchová.

The tournament is being extended to include the much-loved ATP Champions Tour UK round that was previously Champions Tennis at The Royal Albert Hall, with Citi Taste of Tennis Legends Weekend tickets available to the public for the first time.

To kick off the Legends Weekend, Casper Ruud will face Carlos Alcaraz for the first time since the two young stars played each other in the Miami Open final in April 2022, where Alcaraz became the youngest man ever to win the Miami Open, defeating Ruud 7-5, 6-4 in the final.

Citi Taste of Tennis tickets for Legends Weekend on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 June start from £155. The tickets include free-flowing Whispering Angel rosé and a variety of other wines, beers and soft drinks in the Whispering Angel Garden. The themed bar will be located courtside, offering a unique area to relax before settling in to watch legends battle it out on the court.

Tickets are available to purchase here:

“We’re thrilled to have Djokovic and Nadal, two of the best tennis players in the world, compete in the Giorgio Armani Tennis Classic at the Hurlingham Club," IMG VP of tennis events Paul McCann said. "The event is one of London’s most exclusive and intimate sporting events of the summer and with weekend tickets available for the public for the first time this year, it’s a fabulous opportunity for fans to watch their favorite stars compete.”
