Paris, June 07, 2010

One of France’s most popular figures*, Yannick Noah – who’ll soon be celebrating his 50th birthday – will be competing for the Jean-Luc Lagardère Cup alongside former opponents including John McEnroe, Ivan Lendl and Mats Wilander.

Yannick Noah is the last Frenchman to win Roland-Garros, in 1983. Now a musician, he has built up an impressive list of achievements. His personality and charisma have made him one of the country’s best-known faces. So he’s bound to offer spectators yet another show to remember. From 1 to 3 October, six days after “livening up” the Stade de France, Yannick Noah will again be picking up his racket to the delight of spectators.

This year’s exceptional event will take place in the Pierre-de-Coubertin stadium, which has a capacity of 3,500.

The return of John McEnroe, who will be competing for the Jean-Luc Lagardère Cup for the fourth time, is also set to be one of the highlights of the tournament. Winner of seven Grand Slams, the American showman remains extremely popular with the French public. His reunion with Mats Wilander, a Cup regular, and Ivan Lendl, competing for the first time, looks very promising.

Directed by Guy Forget, the 7th Jean-Luc Lagardère Cup is set, once again, to be an extremely exciting event! There are also some surprises in store, with other tennis legends expected on the courts.
