Confirmed: Sharapova to defend her title in Japan Open

Hewitt, Paradorn spearhead Japan Open

TOKYO : Lleyton Hewitt will attempt to avenge his defeat to Thai star Paradorn Srichaphan when he returns to the Japan Open tennis tournament later this year, organisers said on Monday.

The Australian slumped to a 4-6, 3-6 quarter-final defeat here during his reign as world number one, one of several results that marked Paradorn's emergence in tennis' top-flight.

Paradorn, Sebastien Grosjean of France , Mark Philippoussis of Australia , and Russian heartthrob Maria Sharapova will also take part in the $860,000 outdoor hardcourt tournament from October 4-10.

Sharapova, who will turn 17 next week, returns to the centre court where she captured her first WTA titles last year, winning the doubles with Tamarine Tanasugarn of Thailand before lifting the singles.
