Rusedski & Laconte are the latest legends

BRITISH tennis legend Greg Rusedski and French crowd-pleaser Henri Leconte have signed up for the Legends Event to launch this year’s AEGON International.

The duo have been drafted in to replace Boris Becker and Goran Ivanisevic who both withdrew from the event due to injuries.

They will join former world number one Martina Hingis and Wimbledon serve and volley expert Jana Novotna.

Rusedski said, “I am so excited about playing at Eastbourne this year. I still love playing and to get the opportunity to play in front of my home c-rowd again will be brilliant.”
