LONDON, December 6, 2015

Tim Henman will meet Fernando Gonzalez in Sunday’s Champions Tennis Final at the Royal Albert Hall.

The former British No. 1 booked his place in the showpiece event with a straight-sets win over Younes El Aynaoui. A single break in each set was enough for Henman, who prevailed 6-3 7-5 on Saturday afternoon to top Group A.

Earlier in the week, Fernando Gonzalez came through Group B courtesy of wins over Xavier Malisse and Sebastien Grosjean.

Also on Saturday, Bahrami and McEnroe beat Cash and Pernfors 7-4 in a highly entertaining exhibition doubles match.

Elsewhere, the much-anticipated Tie Break Tens event was launched. In an evening of fast-paced, first-to-ten-point tie breaks, it was 20-year-old Kyle Edmund who emerged victorious. The Briton beat his compatriot Andy Murray 10-7 in the final. For all of Murray’s considerable defensive capabilities, Edmund’s powerful forehand proved destructive as he avenged a Group stage loss and took home the US-$ 250,000 prize.
