If you go to high quality tennis, then Venus and Henin was better hands down. If you go to drama, and not by much, then Venus Jankovic.

Venus & Jankovic battle excites Thai tennis fans

[TENNIS] The on-going battle between World No 9 Venus Williams and World No 3 Jelena Jankovic has created a lot of interest amongst Thai tennis fans, resulting in a spurt in ticket sales as the 2 players are seeded to meet in the final of the US$200,000 PTT Bangkok Open, which will be staged at the LTAT National Tennis Development Centre, Muangthongthani from 6 -14 October 2007.

Jankovic
The score currently stands at 2 - 1 this year in favour of Jankovic, whose closely fought 3-set wins, came on clay at Charleston and at the French Open. Williams gained a measure of revenge last week when she upset Jankovic again in 3 tight sets on the hard courts at the US Open.

The two players are not scheduled to compete again in the same tournament until Bangkok, where Jankovic is likely to be the top seed and Williams the 2nd seed, which means there is a very strong probability of them resuming their battle in the final of the tournament.

There is also another possible rematch on the cards as both last year's winner Vania King from the USA and runner-up Tamarine


Tanasugarn of Thailand have entered the tournament. As neither girl is likely to be seeded there is a chance they may also be drawn to face each other in one of the earlier rounds. Tamarine will no doubt be anxious to avenge her defeat last year, which deprived her of her first triumph on home soil.




Tickets are available for the PTT Thailand Open at the following prices:

Saturday 6 October - Sunday 7 October: Admission Free


Monday 8 October - Thursday 11 October 300 & 500 baht


Friday 12 October - Sunday 14 October: 500, 800 & 1,000 baht

For further information and ticket bookings, call the ticket hot line:


02-3823491-3, or visit the official website at:

Sponsors of the PTT Bangkok Open include: PTT Public Co., Ltd,


PTT Group, Bangkok Municipal Administration, Sony-Ericsson, and Today Express.

Re: Venus & Jankovic battle excites Thai tennis fans

I'd hold my breath before creating all that hype. Will Venus even show up?

The poster is delusional because he/she don't share your sentiments? It's his/her opinion that Venus/Jelena 's match was the best of the fortnight dammit
