Some of the best tennis players in history are bringing their talents to Chicago later this year.

Andre Agassi, John McEnroe, Jim Courier and Bjorn Borg are scheduled to compete in the Champions Series at the United Center on Oct. 20, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The 12-city tour is for players over 30 who have won Grand Slam titles.

Courier, who helped start the event in 2005, called it "shocking" that there's no high-profile tennis event in Chicago.

Agassi plans to host clinics for kids during the Chicago stop, the newspaper reported.

Tickets cost $35 and will go on sale Monday via Ticketmaster.
