Amongst those attending the launch were Sam P Jalloh, who is an ex-Sierra Leonean Team Tennis Player who now lives in Southport since 2004. He is now an international coach teaching and helping international stars, including Wimbledon Players. He has been also the Head Coach at the Liverpool International Tennis Tournament since 2012. Additionally, he is a hitting partner for some of the Worlds top players, like Michel Russell, from USA, Andrey Rublev, from Russia and Polona Hercog, from Slovenia. He has recently written a book about his life, that is at times quite graphic, looking at the past; with genocide all around him, during 11 years of civil war and his lifeline the:- "Whitman's game Tennis." As a result he was given the opportunity to also launch his book:- "How Tennis Saved My Life" at the event.


Other names due to attend the Williams BMW Liverpool International Tennis Tournament 2019 are the 2 sensational Italian winners from last year, Corrina Dentoni and Alessandro Giannessi will also come back to Liverpool to defend their titles of 2018. Plus Mansour Bahrami of Iran is set to return.. and many more are to be announced...

Tournament Director Anders Borg says:- "Its a great boost for us to have Mansour returning to Liverpool. We are in the entertainment business and whilst tennis of course is a very serious game Mansour has sort of changed the rules a little on the exhibition circuit with his incredible abilities to showcase tennis also as a fun game."


Guy Adams, Managing Director of Williams Group, said:- "As a North West based family owned business with a flagship retail centre in Liverpool serving the city and Merseyside, Williams BMW is a long standing supporter and sponsor of this prestigious tournament.
