    Recently I've seen Steffi Graf and her husband Andre Agassi as guests on a tournament and I felt that I would have loved to see them play again.On that same broadcasting I saw Mats Wilander and Ille Nastase as commentators.So I was very moved to see so many senior players on a same show.Previously I saw also Guillermo Vilas and Bjorn Borg.
    I thought that it could be very nice that the associations could organize once a year a Senior Grand Slam Tournament and to see everyone of the past players play again.
    Wouldnt you love it?

    Something like that already happens. There are senior Grand Slams in doubles, at least. They call it "legends doubles" or "invitational doubles" or something of the sort, happens at the four Grand Slams.

    There's also a separate seniors tour where they play singles. http://www.championsseriestennis.com/ or http://www.atpchampionstour.com/ .

    I see that all the matches are by Senior players of the ATP...Does the WTA have any tours?
