Guests attending on Saturday will have the opportunity to see the 24-year-old live in action during the ATP singles match.

For only the second time in the events history, tickets are now on sale to the general public to attend on Saturday 1st July, starting at £185.

Attendees will have exclusive access to the pristine grounds of the Hurlingham Club, two ATP singles matches featuring top 20 players and a legends match. They will also be treated to complimentary Whispering Angel rosé and other wines, beers and soft drinks from the comfort of a grandstand seat. The Whispering Angel Garden will be located courtside, offering a unique area to relax before settling in to watch legends battle it out on the court.
