Pacific Life Open News



DAVENPORT, SHARAPOVA, HENIN-HARDENNE COMMIT TO THE 2006 PACIFIC LIFE OPEN

Eight-Time Pacific Life Champion, Former Wimbledon Champion, And Defending French Open Champion Will Lead Top Sony Ericsson Players To 31 st Annual Pacific Life Open

Indian Wells, Calif., January 18, 2006 –Lindsay Davenport, an eight-time Pacific Life Open champion; Maria Sharapova, a former Wimbledon champion; and Justine Henin-Hardenne, the defending French Open champion, have all committed to the Pacific Life Open, to be held March 6-19, 2006, at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. These are just a few of the women’s tennis stars that will compete in the most-attended non-Grand Slam tennis tournament in the world.

Davenport, who has accumulated eight Pacific Life Open singles and doubles crowns, won six titles last year in addition to reaching the finals at the Australian Open and Wimbledon. Sharapova, the 2004 Wimbledon champion and worldwide celebrity, won three tournaments in 2005, rising to the No. 1 ranking for a brief period. Henin-Hardenne, the 2004 Pacific Life Open champion, produced a strong showing in 2005, winning at the French Open, her fourth Grand Slam title, as well as three other tournaments.

Other Sony Ericsson players committing early to the tournament include Mary Pierce and Elena Dementieva. Pierce enjoyed a career renaissance winning two titles in addition to finals appearances at the US and French Opens. Dementieva also produced a strong campaign reaching the finals at three events, including the season-ending Tour Championship, as well as cracking the Sony Ericsson Tour Rankings Top Ten for the third straight year.

Superstars Anastasia Myskina and Tatiana Golovin of Russia, Nathalie Dechy of France, Nicole Vaidisova of the Czech Republic and Ana Ivanovic of Serbia have provided early commitments to the tournament as well.

The 48-player women’s qualifying draw will take place Monday, March 6 and Tuesday, March 7, and feed 12 players into the main draw, which will open on Wednesday, March 8. The women’s final will be held on Super Saturday, March 18, which also will feature men’s semifinal action.

I thought Justine was the defending champion? Kim won the Miami Nasdaq Open.

Masha will be #13 seed (unless someone else will withdraw) and that means she will have to play against #1-4 in the 4th Round so Quarter can be difficult to achieve, but who knows

Draw will be made tomorrow...

Oh, I forgot about last WC (which will presumably go to a Top 20 player) so Masha will probably end up being #14 seed... which doesn`t change anything, she will have to play either Davenport, H-H, Sharapova or Dementieva in the 4th round. Of course if everything goes according to plan

BTW, Does anyone know what happened to Walt ? Its kind of hmmm... strange without him. I hope he is OK and will come back soon

I was asking the same thing about Walt. He must be really busy with his job, I hope that is it instead of something happening to him. I hope he is alright and will come back.

It does seem a bit weird not having him around. Hope he's fine.

Maria should be able to get to the fourth round easily in my opinion.
