cinch Championships 2023: Mahut and Martin crowned doubles champions at inaugural LTA Tennis Foundation Charity Challenge
• 2 MINUTE READ
Sunday marked a first at the cinch Championships as the LTA Tennis Foundation hosted the first ever LTA Tennis Foundation Charity Challenge at the Queen's Club.
The exhibition saw some of the world’s best singles and doubles stars take to Centre Court at the cinch Championships at the Queen’s Club, with proceeds from the Charity Challenge being donated to the LTA Tennis Foundation – the charity that works to change lives through tennis and open up the sport to new audiences.
The singles event saw Dan Evans, Alex De Minaur, Sebastian Korda and Feliciano Lopez participate, while reigning French Open champions Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek were joined by Joe Salisbury and De Minaur, Nicolas Mahut and Fabrice Martin and British duo Evans and Lloyd Glasspool.
The exhibition - which showcased some fantastic tennis while also raising awareness of the charity - consisted of a simple format, with a three-minute warm-up being followed by a 10-point tie-break. The winner of each tie-break would then advance to the final where the last players/doubles team standing battled it out to be crowned champions.
The doubles event saw Mahut and Martin over come a tough two rounds of opponents to take the title of the LTA Tennis Foundation Charity Challenge doubles champions, while the singles event was unfortunately brought to an early close due to poor weather conditions.
