Andy Murray to star in new Tennis format at the Royal Albert Hall

Andy Murray will play his final competitive tennis of the year in the inaugural edition of Tie Break Tens, a new, quick-fire tennis tournament which is to be staged at the Royal Albert Hall on the night of Saturday 5th December as part of Champions Tennis.

Murray will return to London to take on an all-star field of past and present tennis champions at Tie Break Tens the following weekend. World No.7 David Ferrer, former World No.4 Tim Henman, and rising Briton Kyle Edmund will join Murray in a six-man field. The final places will be taken by a qualifier from the Champions Tennis tournament at the Royal Albert Hall, and one still-to-be-announced player.

Each of the ten matches at Tie Break Tens will be contested over a first-to-ten-point tie-break. The six-man field will be drawn into two groups of three players, using a round-robin format. The top two players in each group will go through to the semifinals, with the winner taking away a cheque for $250,000.
