Article: Maleeva to defend DFS Classic, officials hope for Martina N. & Sharapova

Maleeva signs up to defend her DFS title

Apr 20 2004

Hyder Jawad, Birmingham Post


Magdalena Maleeva has confirmed that she will return to Birmingham in June to defend her DFS Classic tennis title.

The Bulgarian player, who is No 23 in the world rankings but was once in the top five, is the first leading player to enter the singles tournament that takes place at Edgbaston

Priory from June 7-13. DFS Classic officials are hoping that Martina Navratilova and Maria Sharapova will also agree to play in the tournament, which carries ranking-points status and is widely regarded by players as being among the most popular events.

Since making her name at Birmingham last year, Sharapova has become the most glamorous player on the women's tour and her entry, if confirmed, will provide officials with a significant boost. Navratilova, the most successful player in history, only plays in doubles events these days but she was originally entered for the singles at the DFS Classic last year and will be invited to play in both events this year.

Tickets are on sale for the tournament, with prices ranging from 7 on the first day to 16 for the final. Weekly passes cost 50. The ticket hotline number is 0870 909 3015.

What makes her glamorous, because she's blonde? Whatever

Would love to see Martina at Birmingham again. God I first went to Birmingham when I was about 15 or 16 and Martina was dominating and she is still there now. OK now I feel old.
She probably still feels 16 like me!
