NEWPORT BEACH - French tennis star Yannick Noah will play Scott

Davis of the Newport Beach Tennis Club in a featured singles match on

opening day, May 9, of the Success Magazine Champions at Newport Beach

Tennis Club.

Davis, the director of tennis at the Newport Beach facility and a

former ATP Tour Rookie of the Year, will make his debut on the Success


Magazine Tour.

The next day, May 10, Davis will square off in singles against John

McEnroe, the tour's main headliner.

"I need some tuneups before I play these guys," said Davis, who hasn't

played many tournaments lately, but stays in shape by hitting with local


Davis, who won the Australian Open doubles title with David Pate in

1991, launching the team to No. 2 in the world, attained an ATP Tour

singles ranking of No. 11 in 1985.

The Success Magazine Champions, with McEnroe as its marquee player, is

May 9-13 at Newport Beach.

Davis and Noah will play their round-robin singles match after British

star John Lloyd plays trick-shot artist Mansour Bahrami at 7 p.m. to kick

off the event. Davis and McEnroe will play at 7 p.m. on May 10.

Davis will play doubles in the event with Pat Cash, the 1987 Wimbledon
