Paris, June 29, 2009

For the past six years, the Trophée Jean-Luc Lagardère has been offering sports fans glorious moments from the history of tennis, without digging into the archives! There are no revenge matches or remakes, just great matches between VIPs (Very Important Players).

The return of Michael Chang and Stefan Edberg, who were pitted against each other in 1989 in a legendary Roland-Garros French Open final, is sure to stir up some real excitement at this sixth annual event directed by Guy Forget, to be held at the La Croix Catelan sports complex, next 24-27 September.

Yevgeny Kafelnikov, the first Russian to win a Grand Slam title and former World No. 1, along with American Michael Chang will make their debuts in this event, whose current title holder is the Swede Stefan Edberg.

Mats Wilander, Thomas Muster, Cedric Pioline, Arnaud Boetsch and of course Guy Forget will complete the line-up on the clay courts of the idyllic Paris complex, nestled in the lush greenery of the Bois de Boulogne.

These champions are being reunited for one purpose only: to regale you with four exceptional days of world-class tennis – four days that, far from being relegated to the archives, are sure to live on in the memories of tennis fans…
