Sveta qualifies for YEC

Kuznetsova Qualifies For Madrid

Photo By Ron Angle By Tennis Week
10/02/2006

Svetlana Kuznetsova was only 14 years old the first time she stepped on a court in Spain to train at the Sanchez-Casal Academy in Barcelona in 1999. Next month, the French Open finalist will return to Spain to compete in the season-ending Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Championships, which will be staged at Madrid Arena in the Spanish capital, November 7-12.





The 2004 U.S. Open Champion is currently fourth in the race to the Championships with 2,433 points. Kuznetsova joins World No. 1 Amelie Mauresmo, U.S. Open champion Maria Sharapova and three-time French Open champion Justine Henin-Hardenne in qualifying for the year-end tournament. Henin-Hardenne is highly questionable for Madrid due to a knee injury she suffered in last month's Fed Cup final.

Kuznetsova, who trained at Sanchez-Casal Academy as a junior, has claimed eight singles titles in her four-year career and is currently ranked a career-high No. 4. "Qualifying for the Sony Ericsson Championships was one of the key targets I set for myself this year," said Kuznetsova. "I'm delighted to have made the Sony Ericsson Championships as one of the elite eight singles players and can't wait to get to Madrid, as I consider Spain to be a second home to me. It's going to be a fabulous week of tennis and more." The Sony Ericsson Championships features the top eight singles players and top four doubles teams from the regular 2006 Sony Ericsson WTA Tour season as they battle it out for the season-ending titles and a share of the $3-million prize purse. The defending champions are Mauresmo (singles) and Lisa Raymond and Samantha Stosur (doubles).

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
