Wimbledon champions to clash in Hong Kong final

Fourteen years separated the two memorable Wimbledon triumphs of 1987 winner Pat Cash and 2001 titlist Goran Ivanisevic, but they will face off on Sunday in the final of the Chevalier ATP Champions in Hong Kong.

Both players topped their respective groups with 100% records – Cash overcame Cedric Pioline 6-3, 6-2 in his final round-robin match, while Ivanisevic received a walkover when Anders Jarryd’s back injury again prevented him from taking to the court.

Henri Leconte earned himself a place in the third/fourth play-off against Thomas Muster with a 6-4, 6-3 win over Mark Kratzmann. Muster defeated Jeremy Bates 6-4, 7-6.

Matches are contested over the best of three sets, with the deciding set taking the form of a Champions’ Tie-break. The first player to reach 10 points in the Champions’ Tie-break is the winner. If the score is level at 9-all, a two-point advantage is required.

The event in Hong Kong is one of a number of new steps on the Road to London in 2005. Tournaments in Doha (Qatar), Frankfurt (Germany), Novi (Croatia), Monte Carlo (Monaco) and Essen (Germany), have all been added to the Champions Tour calendar.

John McEnroe won the first event on the Delta Tour of Champions – the European section of the worldwide ATP Champions Tour – when he triumphed in Frankfurt in February. Last week, Sergi Bruguera overcame Cash in the Doha final.

Players will compete for points throughout the year to qualify for The Masters at the Royal Albert Hall in London, November 29 – December 4. The top ten players in the Stanford Financial Champions Tour Rankings after all events are complete will qualify automatically. The field in London will increase to 12 with the addition of two wild cards.

To be eligible to compete on the ATP Champions Tour, players must have been either a World No.1 during their competitive playing careers, a Grand Slam singles finalist, or a singles player on a victorious Davis Cup team, and no longer active on the ATP tour. Each event can also invite two players of its choice to take wild cards.

Ivanisevic beats Cash to top Stanford Financial Rankings

Goran Ivanisevic defeated Pat Cash in the final of the Chevalier ATP Champions event in Hong Kong to move to the top of the Stanford Financial Champions Tour Rankings.

Ivanisevic, who retired from the ATP circuit last year, won 6-2, 6-4 with a barrage of big serving.

“It's nice to win,” said the Croat, who now leads the race to qualify for the Champions Masters at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

“These guys are all great players. I was a ball boy to Pat in Croatia in 1985, so it's nice,” he said.

For Cash, the occasion marked a second successive final, but his defeat to Ivanisevic brought back memories of his loss to Sergi Bruguera in Doha last week.

“When I got into the rallies, I think I was winning most of them, but it took me 4 or 5 games to get used to his serve,” said Cash.

“He's got an incredible serve. The rest of his game is good too - he's so powerful. There's no-one else like him on the Champions Tour at the moment.”

The event in Hong Kong is one of a number of new steps on the Road to London in 2005. Tournaments in Doha (Qatar), Frankfurt (Germany), Novi (Croatia), Monte Carlo (Monaco) and Essen (Germany), have all been added to the Champions Tour calendar.

John McEnroe won the first event on the Delta Tour of Champions – the European section of the worldwide ATP Champions Tour – when he triumphed in Frankfurt in February. Last week, Bruguera overcame Cash in the Doha final.

The next event takes place in Rome, Italy (May 6-10) alongside the men’s and women’s ATP events.

Players will compete for points throughout the year to qualify for The Masters at the Royal Albert Hall in London, November 29 – December 4. The top ten players in the Stanford Financial Champions Tour Rankings after all events are complete will qualify automatically. The field in London will increase to 12 with the addition of two wild cards.

To be eligible to compete on the ATP Champions Tour, players must have been either a World No.1 during their competitive playing careers, a Grand Slam singles finalist, or a singles player on a victorious Davis Cup team, and no longer active on the ATP tour.
