Groenefeld, Golovin, Safina Join Amelia Island Field
03/23/2006

Three members of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour’s group of young, rising talents residing in the top 25 have committed to play in the 27th annual Bausch & Lomb Championships, scheduled to take place April 3rd-9th at the oceanfront resort of Amelia Island Plantation in Amelia Island, Florida.

Twenty-one-year-old, Anna-Lena Groenefeld (No. 18), 19-year-old, Dinara Safina (No. 20) and 18-year-old, Tatiana Golovin (No. 24) will join the field that already includes 2005 Bausch & Lomb Championships defending champion, Lindsay Davenport (currently sidelined with a bulging disc in her back) along with top players Mary Pierce, Nadia Petrova, Patty Schnyder, Francesca Schiavone, Elena Likhovtseva and Flavia Pennetta.

"This year we are fortunate to have a very strong line up of the young and rising Tour superstars," said tournament director John Arrix. "Three names that add a great deal of excitement are those of Groenefeld, Safina and Golovin. These exciting players add to the strong main draw that we have already established, as each is on track to challenge the top seeded players on any given day."

Groenefeld reached the finals at three 2005 Sony Ericsson WTA Tour events and claimed three doubles titles just two years after having turned pro in April of 2003. Her first Tour singles final came at Pattaya City, where she stretched the final match to three sets. She then went on to reach back-to-back finals at Beijing and Luxembourg. Groenefeld was also a two-time semifinalist and quarterfinalist during her breakthrough 2005 season. She began her 2006 season with early-round losses at Paris and Memphis. She found her focus at Acapulco scoring her first Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles title along with her fourth career Tour doubles title (with Shaughnessy). This win gave Groenefeld the distinction as the first player in the 2006 season to sweep both the singles and doubles crowns at the same Tour event.

A year ago, Safina claimed her third career singles title came at Paris where she defeated Amelie Mauresmo in a three-set final match. Later in the season, Safina notched a career-first victory over a reigning world No. 1 with a three-set victory over Sharapova in the quarterfinal round at Moscow. Her fourth Tour singles title came in Prague. For 2006, Safina reached quarterfinals in Paris, Antwerp and Indian Wells, as well as a semifinal spot at Gold Coast.

Golovin will be making her main draw 2006 Bausch & Lomb Championships debut in April. Tickets for the 2006 Bausch & Lomb Championships are now available. For daily ticket, box seat and package information, please call (800) 486-8366 or visit the tournament web site at blchamps.com.

I think this is going to be an awesome clay season for Dinara, starting with Amelia. I'm crossing my fingers for a good draw.
