In addition to Agassi, McEnroe, Courier and Chang, other stops on the tour will feature fellow Grand Slam champions Pete Sampras, Jimmy Connors, Pat Rafter and Mats Wilander as well as Davis Cup Champion Todd Martin. The athletes will be competing for a prize pool totaling $1 million to be shared by the top three finishers at the conclusion of the season. Each PowerShares Series tournament will showcase four of the legendary players competing for ranking points playing in two, 1-set semifinals followed by an 8-game pro-set championship match.
Pete Sampras finished the 2011 season as the #1 ranked player, followed by Jim Courier and Andre Agassi.
“We are thrilled to be coming to Anaheim for the first time with the PowerShares Series,” said Jim Courier. “The one-night shootout style format of these events makes for a big test for the players and big fun for the audience.”
“The name change to PowerShares Series tennis reflects our ongoing support for this highly successful tour which has garnered valuable exposure for PowerShares QQQ,” said Jason Schoepke, Chief Marketing Officer at Invesco PowerShares. “We are confident the 2012 PowerShares Series tennis circuit will continue to advance the PowerShares brand with our core audiences and look forward to this year’s events.”
The PowerShares Series is a tennis circuit for champion tennis players over the age of 30, created in 2005 by InsideOut Sports + Entertainment, the New York based firm which is co-owned and operated by former SFX executive Jon Venison and former world No. 1 Jim Courier.
