Venus Williams confirms participation in Bangalore Open

Venus Williams confirms participation in Bangalore Open


BANGALORE, FEB 4 (PTI)
The Bangalore Open will now have another added attraction with Venus Williams confirming participation and joining her sister Serena, the organisers announced here today.

"The Bangalore Open will have them", tournament director and Secretary of the Karnataka Lawn Tennis Association (KSLTA) Sunder Raju told reporters here.

Austria's Sybille Bammer is another player among the top 10 who will be participating in this Tier-II event, being held here at Karnataka Lawn Tennis Courts from March 3 to 9.

For the first time, as an experiment, coaches will be allowed to coach players during the matches, he said.

Thirty two players, including Serena, will vie for top honours in the tourney, which offers a total prize money of USD 600,000.

Sunder said Indian Tennis sensation Sania Mirza has not entered the Bangalore Open.

On why Sania has decided against participating, he said "you guess it. I can only say she has not entered".

I agree.

But if she really play them all - well, it would be amazing. I hope she plays at least Doha & Bangalore.

Re: Venus Williams confirms participation in Bangalore Open

I think there is a good chance Venus will show up. But I also suspect this means Serena won't show up. When was the last time both sisters appeared in the same non Slam, non Tier 1 event, particularly a non Slam, non Tier 1 event not on North American soil? I just can't see them both being here and Venus having just comfirmed that she would be here and also being by far the more dependable of the sisters seems by far the more likely of the two to attend.
