after all I was right...

ZIMBABWE REPLACE FRANCE IN PLAY-OFF

France has withdrawn from the Hyundai Hopman Cup Play-Off match against the Netherlands and been replaced by the brother-sister combination of Cara and Wayne Black representing Zimbabwe.

This will be Cara and Wayne Black’s second visit to Perth for the International Mixed Teams Event; ironically they were defeated by the French Team of Testud and Raoux in the 1999 Play-Off. They make a strong doubles combination and are the reigning Wimbledon mixed doubles champions after defeating Australia’s Alicia Molik and Todd Woodbridge and were also finalists at Roland Garros.

Cara finished the year as number 3 in the world in doubles after capturing seven titles including a further Grand Slam doubles title at Wimbledon with Rennae Stubbs.

Wayne has also had a good year in doubles by winning two titles and reaching the Quarter Finals in each of the four Grand Slams and the Athens Olympics to finish the year at number 8 in the rankings.

The French were compelled to withdraw after Tatiana Golovin inadvertently entered the UncleToby’s Hardcourt tournament in Queensland. As a gold exempt player she would be required to pay a hefty fine, if she withdrew her entry from this WTA Tour event so the Hopman Cup organisers released her from her commitment.

Hyundai Hopman Cup XVII, to be held from 1-8 January 2005, is the Official Mixed Teams Competition of the ITF. Zimbabwe will play the Netherlands on 1 January commencing at the special time of 3pm. Children under the age of 15 accompanied by an adult will be admitted free.

News

Golovin joins 2005 Uncle Tobys Hardcourts

December 13, 2004




In a major coup for the tournament, 16-year-old Tatiana Golovin of France will join the player field for the 2005 Uncle Tobys Hardcourts, it was announced today.

Golovin, currently ranked No.27 in the world, is one of the world’s most exciting tennis players following her breakthrough year in 2004. Beginning the year ranked 365, she received a wildcard into the Australian Open and went on to reach the fourth round of only her fifth WTA Tour event.

Other key results for the year include reaching the final of Tier III event Birmingham (defeated by Maria Sharapova), a semifinal appearance at the Paris Indoors, and the fourth round of Wimbledon (going down to top seed and defending champion Serena Williams).

Golovin also clinched her first Grand Slam title in 2004, winning the French Open mixed doubles as a wildcard team with compatriot Richard Gasquet in June.

Her recent form bodes well for a strong showing at the Uncle Tobys Hardcourts – at the recent Fed Cup final in late November, Golovin was edged out by French Open champion Anatasia Myskina 6-4 7-6(5) and showed nerves of steel to defeat US Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-4 6-1 in the fourth rubber to force the Tie into a fifth and deciding doubles rubber.

Tournament Director Liz Smylie said she was thrilled to see Golovin joining the line-up at the Uncle Tobys Hardcourts for the first time.

"Having a drawcard such as Tatiana sign on for the Uncle Tobys Hardcourts is another boost for a field that already boasts six of the world’s top 20 players," Smylie said.

"At just 16 years of age Tatiana has had an unbelievable year, improving her ranking by 338 places and emerging as one of the biggest stars on the WTA Tour right now. With her glamorous looks, I’m sure she’ll draw crowds similar to when Anna Kournikova played on the Gold Coast in 2000.

"Tatiana will be keen to get her year off to a flying start, and the Uncle Tobys Hardcourts provides her with a perfect opportunity to do just that," she said.

Golovin had inadvertently committed to play the Hyundai Hopman Cup as well in the same week, and the Hopman Cup organisation released her from that commitment.

Four former winners of the tournament – in addition to six of the world’s top 20 players – have already signed up to play the popular event. The 2005 top seed will be last year’s finalist and world No.12 Nadia Petrova of Russia.

Other top players competing for title honours will be Swiss Patty Schnyder (world No.14), Elena Bovina of Russia (15) and defending champion Ai Sugiyama of Japan (world No.17).

Two Queenslanders, Nicole Pratt and Samantha Stosur, have been directly accepted into the main draw and will shoulder Australia’s hopes for a victory.

As Queensland’s premier international tennis event, the Uncle Tobys Hardcourts forms part of the Road to the Australian Open, an 11-event lead-in to Australian Open 2005 embracing tournaments in the Asia / Pacific region.

Tickets for the 2005 Uncle Tobys Hardcourts are currently on sale and are available through Ticketmaster7 on 1300 136 122. Ticket prices range from $21 through to $44 on the final day. Seven day and three night sessions will be held with ‘season’, ‘family’ and ‘group’ ticket options on offer. Discounts are available for aged pensioners, full-time students and U/16s.

The 2005 Uncle Tobys Hardcourts enjoys the continued support of the Queensland Government through Queensland Events.

The Uncle Tobys Hardcourts will be staged at Royal Pines Resort, Gold Coast, from 2-8 January with the qualifying event commencing on 31 December 2004.


Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson
