Arrow Super Hong Kong Exo

Hong Kong is my favorite exhibiton of the year. It is played in a normal tournament format, though it starts at the quarterfinal stage, with just 8 players involved. The field is always a sparkling one, as top players looking for a fun but competitive tune-up for the Aussie Open, sometimes like to play here instead of entering a WTA event ahead of Sydney.

This year, Hong Kong features a heavily Russian / USA field; only Maggie Maleeva and the usual one Asian entrant, come from outside this group. From memory, the players are:

MONICA SELES
CHANDA RUBIN
ALEX STEVENSON
ANASTASIA MYSKINA
ELENA DEMENTIEVA
MARIA SHARAPOVA
MAGGIE MALEEVA
SHUAI PENG

If anyone sees any news about this exo, please post it here!

Shuai Peng is a junior player from China playing the event. She is young ....but quite a good player........ she almost beat Tina Pisnik this year. She is the asian entrant into the draw.

I wonder how much the players get for this exhibition . I remember reading that Tauziat had been offered USD 40,000 for a participation early 2000.

LAST YEAR EXHIBITION

As far as I recall, last year Asia was represented by 2 players: Tamarine Tanasugarn & Angelique Widjaja...Angie lost badly against Jennifer Capriati!

Thanks! I got a wish! I was hoping that Maria would meet Stevenson or Maleeva. Maria Sharapova has a chance! Hope she is in the same half draw with Myskina.

Good luck, Maria!!! You can do it to win at least one match! I would be able to watch you playing on TV that will show the semi-final and final matches! Please, please!

How Maria plays against Maleeva will be a good indication of where her game is.

I wonder if Dementieva's goal is still to break into the top 5 like it was last year

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.
