Cool. Thanks for the draw.

I think we're looking at a Serena and Maria final again.

Sports - AFP Serena Williams to join sister Venus at Hong Kong challenge tournament

Sports - AFP



HONG KONG (AFP) - Six-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams (news - web sites) has confirmed she will join sister Venus to complete an impressive line-up at an annual invitational tournament in Hong Kong next year, organisers said.

Williams was among four names yesterday confirmed for the sixth Watson's Water Champions Challenge in January. The others were former world number one Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario, French and US Open runner-up Elena Dementieva from Russia and 15-year-old rising Czech star Nicole Vaidisova



They will join reigning Wimbledon (news - web sites) champion Maria Sharapova, world number two Amelie Mauresmo, US Open winner Svetlana Kuznetsova and Venus Williams (news - web sites), who has four-time grand slam career titles.



The eight players will meet in singles and doubles contests over the four-day event at the Victoria Park Tennis Stadium being held from January 5-8.





Isn't Vaidisova in?

Perhaps V&S are finally ready to start dominating Grand Slam Doubles again! They've seen enough of Suarez & R.P. winning everything I think Venus and Mauresmo will play the singles final & The WS will win doubles over Mauresmo/Sharapova (interesting team)

I guess they plant Vaidisova there in case any of the major 6 pulls out. There's no point bringing her in for only a doubles match.

it would have been funny if they put Maria and Sveta as doubles partners.

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori
