The crowd was buzzing to see the British star play her first match on British soil following her historic US Open victory. Throughout the match, there was playful banter between the two friends with Ruse inviting a young ball boy to play and ended up winning a point for her in the opening set.

In doubles, Mansour Bahrami and David Ferrer defeated Mikael Pernfors and Nicolas Almagro, 7-6(3). Raducanu delighted fans when she came back on court to play with fan favorite Mansour Bahrami in the doubles, an idol of hers since she was a little girl.

Champions Tennis sees players who have held the World No. 1 ranking, reached a Grand Slam singles final or been a singles player in a victorious Davis Cup team, compete in a mixture of team and individual events in both singles and doubles.

This day also marks the last time the tournament was held at the historic Royal Albert Hall, with this year’s tournament offering tennis lovers a fantastic final opportunity to watch legends of the game battle it out in the beautiful surroundings of this legendary building.
