There was a shock result in the very first match  of the Senior Masters Cup, which got underway at the Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa Tennis Club last night.

Defending champion Albert Costa lost a very even match (6-2, 3-6, 10-7) to Madrid’s Pato Clavet, who was a last minute replacement for the injured  Sebastian Grosjean.

In the second match Mats Wilander met Senior Masters Cup new boy Pat Cash. The Swedish master didn’t give the former Wimbledon champion the opportunity to show off on centre court, beating him  6-4, 6-3.

Wildander meets John McEnroe on centre court tonight at 8pm. The Senior Masters Cup finishes on Saturday.
