I know that we had such events a couple of times but as far as I am concerned those on the menīs side would be of greater interest with Rafter, Becker and those recently retired in it.

Same as on the womenīs side the return of former stars like Graf, Navratilova, Evert, Sanchez-Vicario, Sukova, Maleeva and stuff are more interesting then Smylie, Nagelsen and all those retired earlier than the last 6-7 years.

I think the tennis world would need a doubles of Graf/Navratilova against the likes of Sanchez/Sukova or Novotna/Sabatini. They would put on a big show on the showcourts of the GS compared to doubles specialists like McNeal or Provis or Fernandez (Gigi) who never did great in singles.

Graf/Navratilova would be unbeatable on a lgends tour. They would proably be nearly unbeatable on the main tour!
