10000$ Wellington, New Zealand, winner: Leanne Baker

10000$ ASB International Wellington, New Zealand








The place:
Wellington (Te Whanganui-a-Tara or Poneke) is the capital city of New Zealand, the country's second-largest urban area and the most populous national capital city in Oceania. Wellington stands at the southern tip of the North Island in the geographical centre of the country.
New Zealand's major financial institutions are divided between Wellington and Auckland, and some organisations have headquarters in both cities. It is New Zealand's political centre, housing Parliament and head offices for all government departments and ministries. Wellington is often described as New Zealand's cultural centre, boasting a world class film and theatre industry, Te Papa (the Museum of New Zealand), the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and the Royal New Zealand Ballet. Its compact city centre supports an arts scene, café culture and nightlife much larger than most cities of a similar size.

Wellington was named in honour of Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington and victor at the Battle of Waterloo. The Duke's title comes from the town of Wellington in the English county of Somerset.

In the Māori language Wellington goes by two names. Te Whanganui-a-Tara refers to Wellington Harbour and means "the great harbour of Tara". The alternative name Pōneke is often discouraged because of a belief that it is nothing more than a transliteration of the harbour's former nickname in English, Port Nick, short for Port Nicholson.

Like many cities, Wellington's urban area extends well beyond the boundaries of a single local authority. Greater Wellington or the Wellington Region means the entire urban area, plus the rural parts of the cities and the Kapiti Coast, and across the Rimutaka Range to the Wairarapa.

The Tournament:
Surface: Hard
Previous Winners:
2000: Mireille Dittmann AUS d. Leanne Baker NZL 76 16 76
2001: Suwei Hsieh TPE d. Shelley Stephens NZL 62 64
2002: Adriana Szili AUS d. Ilke Gers NZL 62 62
2003: Lauren Breadmore AUS d. Dubravka Cupac AUS 63 26 75
2004: Cindy Watson AUS d. Lauren Breadmore AUS 64 61
2005: Leanne Baker NZL d. Mireille Dittmann AUS 26 61 61

Wellington was always a good terrain for the "Kiwi" players. When we look at the 2000 draw, 6 years ago we can see how dynamic tennis on the ITF level is. From the players in the draw only Mireille Dittmann, Remi Tezuka, Leanne Baker and Tracey OŽConnor are still active. Top seed Mireille Dittmann got the title that year with wins over Markovic, Gers, Tippins, van Elden and Baker.
Su-Wei Hsieh had no problems at all to win the title in 2001. With Shelley Stephens, Ilke Gers, Leanne Baker and Nicola Kaiwai four New Zealand girls reached the quarters
In 2002 Ilke Gers surprisingly reached the final with nice wins over Eden Marama and Nicole Kriz. Adriana Szili was one level above the rest, which she showed with 60 61 over Keiko Tameishi, 61 61 over Julie Scott, 61 60 over Shelley Stephens, 60 61 over Tracey OŽConnor and 62 62 over Ilke Gers in the final.
In 2003 "Dubro" Dubravka Cupac reached the final with wins over top seed Shelley Stephens and Mandy Minella. Also in the draw, Pauline Parmentier
2004 had many good players. Breadmore, Chuang, Watson, Erakovic, Hewson, DŽAmelioor OŽConnor all played. Talent Marina Erakovic reached the SF (36 36 vs Breadmore).
Last year finally the first title for a player from New Zealand here. "Oldie" Leanne Baker played another "veteran" Mireille Dittmann in the final. Doubles specialist TRudi Musgrave nearly got double bageld by Marina Erakovic. KoreaŽs Ye-Ra Lee with wins over Rybarikova and Erakovic surprised

I've voted for Mari Tanaka in the poll. It'll depend on her form. If she's playing well enough, she should win as she's underranked. She hasn't played yet this year so who knows...
