The ATP Tennis Tour returns to Rio after an eleven-year absence in the unlikely confines of the Jockey Club, Gávea. As a precursor to the main event, the Champions Challenge Cup will be hosted on the first weekend, bringing legends of the game Yannick Noah and Guy Forget on court as they take on the Equadorian pairing of Andres Gomez and Nicolas Lapentti for a place in the final against the Brazilians Fernando Meligeni and Jaime Oncins. This leg of the ATP might not attract a raft of top 100 players, but there are Brazilians well worth watching out for in the form of world number 119 Thiago Alves and 'Feijão' (152), plus it serves as a timely precursor to the addition of Rio on the tour proper from 2014.
