Re: Next Week's Tier 3 in Bali will be more exciting than the U.S. Open
From the WISMILAK Website:
"Players are arriving, and the scene is set for a week of top-level tennis action as the Commonwealth Bank Tennis Classic gets underway at the Grand Hyatt Resort, Nusa Dua. The biggest women’s tennis event in South East Asia starts with the qualifying rounds on Sunday, with main draw matches beginning on Monday.
Former champion and world number one Lindsay Davenport has already been hitting on Centre Court, watched by new-born son Jagger. The 31-year old American, who claimed the title in 2005 and reached the semi-finals in 2006 before falling to Svetlana Kuznetsova, is making her first singles appearance in almost a year after giving birth to her first child in June.
Her practise partner has been svelte Slovak Daniela Hantuchova, who is anxious to improve on her shock first round exit last year. Having returned to the top 10 this year following her triumph at Indian Wells, Daniela is being coached while she is in Bali by former Spanish star Angel Jimenez."
