15 Mar Royal Lahaina hosts Invesco Series QQQ, the North American tennis circuit for champion players
UPDATE MONDAY, APRIL 29, 2019:
John McEnroe has been forced to withdraw from this week’s Hawaii Champions Cup Invesco Series QQQ event at the Royal Lahaina Resort in Maui due to a back injury.
McEnroe, who turned 60 on February 16, will be replaced in the four-player field by U.S. Davis Cup captain Mardy Fish in the event held May 4 and 5. Fish will join defending champion Tommy Haas, Michael Chang and Mark Philippoussis in the tournament, the fourth of 10 events on the 2019 Invesco Series QQQ schedule.
“I’m very disappointed to not be able to return to Hawaii for another great event,” said McEnroe. “I know I will work hard, to get back in top form, so I can compete again on the Invesco Series”.
The Hawaii Champions Cup marks the second straight year that Hawaii has hosted an event on the North American tennis circuit for champion tennis players over the age of 30. Last year, Mauna Lani Bay on the Kohala Coast hosted the event, which was won by Haas, who defeated McEnroe in the final.
The Royal Lahaina Resort on Maui, Hawaii will host tennis legends John McEnroe, Michael Chang, Tommy Haas and Mark Philippoussis May 4 and 5 at the Hawaii Champions Cup, InsideOut Sports & Entertainment announced today.
The event, part of the Invesco Series QQQ tennis circuit, marks the second straight year that the Hawaiian Islands have hosted an event on the North American tennis circuit for champion tennis players over the age of 30. Last year, Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows on the island of Hawaii’s Kohala Coast hosted the event, which was won by Haas, who defeated McEnroe in the final.
The event will feature two one-set semifinal matches and a championship match between the winners. It will be part of a weekend of events that kicks off Saturday, May 4 with kids clinics, VIP hit-with-the-pros sessions and a VIP party.
“It’s always great to have the opportunity to go to Hawaii and it’s even better to go there and get a chance to play some competitive tennis on the Invesco Series circuit,” said McEnroe. “The crowds were really great last year and we look forward to seeing more happy fans come back and watch us play again this May.”
On Sunday, doors will open at 1 pm and will kick off with a hula performance followed by the first semifinal between Haas and Philippoussis. McEnroe, the four-time U.S. Open champion, and Chang, the 1989 French Open champion, will then play the second semifinal match with the final to follow.
