Tennis - John McEnroe defeated Mats Wilander in the Kings of Tennis ATP Champions Tour event in Stockholm.

Defending champion McEnroe defeated Wilander 6-3, 6-4 and is now the front runner to reach the finals later this week.

After the match, McEnroe commented, "Mats is a great player obviously and we've had a lot of great matches over the years. He's won the same number of Grand Slams as I did which is incredible, so I guess that makes me pretty incredible also! I knew it was going to be tough. Mats has been playing better and better and he hit a lot of great shots and I was lucky not to have to go to a third set.'

In other matches, last year's finalist Magnus Larsson beat fellow Swede Mikael Pernfors 6-3, 6-2.

McEnrore takes on Henri Leconte while Larrson plays Stefan Edberg on Thursday.

Former world no. 5 Robin Soderling was in the crowd watching McEnroe and Wilander.
