Dubai: Frenchman Fabrice Santoro will feature in the Roger Federer-led Indian 'Aces' in a dual role of player-cum-coach in the upcoming International Premier Tennis League (IPTL).
Apart from Federer, former Serbian world number one Ana Ivanovic, legendary Pete Sampras, Gael Monfils and India's Sania Mirza and Rohan Bopanna form the Indian team.
Australian Davis Cup coach Josh Eagle and John Laffnie De Jager were revealed as coaches of the Singapore 'Slammers' and the UAE 'Royals' respectively.
Philippines' number on player Treat Huey will be part of the Manila ‘Mavericks’ as player-coach.
"Together, all four coaches will help their respective teams formulate a winning strategy as they compete across five single-set matches involving men's singles, women's singles, men's doubles, mixed doubles and past champion singles to determine a winner," an IPTL release said.
Each game won will count as one point for the team points total. The team that wins the most games overall across the five sets wins the match.
