Sharapova and the Williams Sisters Headline Tuesday’s Acura Classic Schedule
It will be a FAN-tastic day of tennis on Tuesday at the Acura Classic as Venus and Serena Williams, as well as Maria Sharapova will all be in action on Stadium Court at the La Costa Resort and Spa.
Serena, the top seed, will be making her Acura Classic singles debut during the day session against Jelena Jankovic. In 1999, she reached the doubles final with Venus, but until now, she has never played singles in the Acura Classic.
Venus, a three-time Acura Classic champion, will also be playing during Tuesday’s day session. She will face Argentina’s rising star, Gisela Dulko.
Tuesday’s night session is sure to go down in Acura Classic history as Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova will make her first ever tournament appearance.
The 17-year-old Russian, who is seeded sixth, will play the winner of a first-round match between Maria Vento-Kabchi of Venezuela and a qualifier.
