Published work and interviews for the ATP Champions Tour

Featured within this section are video interviews I have completed with well known tennis players, as well as match reports/features I have written for the ATP Champions Tour.

An interview with three-time Wimbledon champion and tennis legend John McEnroe following his emphatic Statoil Masters Tennis final victory over Swede Mats Wilander at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

McEnroe, aged 53, showcased artistry and natural shot-making ability in a routine 6-1 6-2 win.

Afterwards, the sporting icon could not hide his delight at securing a sixth Royal Albert Hall title.

You can listen to the full video interview below:

McEnroe is back!

In 2008, John McEnroe lost 11-9 in a final set to Jeremy Bates and decided it would be his last match at his favourite venue on the ATP Champions Tour. But after two years away, McEnroe decided to return to the Statoil Masters Tennis, and he did so in style by gaining revenge against Bates at the Royal Albert Hall.
