Re: Wick for Auck

One of the rising stars of women's tennis in 2009 has confirmed her appearance for January's 2010 ASB Classic featuring in the singles and doubles.
Belgium No2 Yanina Wickmayer has jumped up 53 spots since the start of 2009 to break into the world's top 20. She has been one of the big movers this year going from world number 71 in January 2009 to a current career high of number 18.
In the last six months she has claimed two WTA Tour titles and also reached her first Grand Slam semifinal at the US Open in September.
Wickmayer now finds herself this week in the Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions in Bali which is an inaugural event for the 12 highest ranked players who have won an International Series tournament on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour in 2009.
She turned 20 years-old on October 20 and became ranked in the top 20 for the first time that same week. She is currently the second youngest player in the top 20 behind 19 year-old Caroline Wozniacki.
Standing at 1.82m tall Wickmayer uses her big serve to good effect and was able to reel off a number of good results around the world on different surfaces.
She captured the Estoril singles title on clay, reached the final of s'Hertogenbosch on grass as well as the quarters at Birmingham and semis at Nottingham also both on grass.

However her big results and best ever result at a Grand Slam came on the hardcourts at the US Open with the run to the semifinals putting her in the public eye and making the tennis world take note. It was in the rain delayed semifinals that she fell to finalist Caroline Wozniacki.
Just a few weeks after her US Open success Wickmayer captured her second career title with a win at the Linz tournament in Austria accounting for world No11 Flavia Pennetta in the semis and Petra Kvitova in the final which resulted in her top 20 debut.
The following week she reached the semis at the Luxembourg tournament which took her to a career high ranking of 18.
"Yanina is the new young face in the top 20 that people around the world are talking about. It's great to have a second top 20 player confirmed for the 2010 ASB Classic and it's also great that all three players announced so far, Vesnina at 22, Li Na at 15 and now Wickmayer at 18 are all entering the ASB Classic with career high rankings," says ASB Classic Tournament Director, Brenda Perry.
In 2008, ranked 175, Wickmayer was in the Main Draw of the ASB Classic courtesy of a Feed-Up spot from having won an ITF $US50,000 title in China. She will return in 2010 as one of the top seeds.
Wickmayer has a further connection with Auckland having partnered NZ's current number one player, Sacha Jones, in three Junior ITF Doubles events in 2006.Read More
Already confirmed for the 2010 ASB Classic are the world No1 doubles and multi-Grand Slam winning pair of Cara Black (Zimbabwe) and Liezel Huber (United States), world No15, Li Na from China plus No22 and 2009 finalist Elena Vesnina from Russia all of whom will be seeds in the Singles and Doubles along with Wickmayer.
