The top class tennis event The Aberdeen Cup is set to return to Aberdeen this year and plans are already at an advanced stage for another spectacular competition in 2007.
The Lawn Tennis Association has approved the 2006 event and Andy Murray and Greg Rusedski have both agreed terms with the promoters to take part.
In 2005 the tournament attracted 11 hours of live coverage on Sky television, which included footage of the city, which was also shown on the US Tennis Channel, as part of the City Council sponsorship package.
Last year 81 journalists attended the event and it is anticipated that even more will attend this year if Andy Murray, as expected, continues his charge up the world rankings.
