Former World Number One Carlos Moya will make his debut in the Statoil Masters Tennis, an event owned by IMG , after signing up to appear at the Royal Albert Hall, London , December 5 to 9 for the first time.
Moya and the 1999 Australian Open runner-up Thomas Enqvist have both joined the star-studded line-up, which also includes John McEnroe, Goran Ivanisevic, Tim Henman, Pat Cash, Mark Philippoussis, Henri Leconte, Mats Wilander and Mansour Bahrami.
Moya, who won the 1998 French Open, and has been the most successful player on the ATP Champions Tour since joining the circuit last year. He put together a 12-match winning streak before running into Enqvist in Knokke-Heist , Belgium a couple of weeks ago. The Spaniard tops the South African Airways Rankings with almost double the points of his nearest rival, Philippoussis.
