The draw for the 2006 Medibank International will be held Saturday 7 January at Pitt Street Mall in the Sydney CBD, close to the entrance of the Myer Department Store. The draw will begin at approximately 12.30 and players from the ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour are expected.

Taken from medibankinternational.com.au

Which means it's announced now. (12:37 pm)

Hingis draws Henin-Hardenne in Sydney
Saturday January 7, 2:17 PM



Martina Hingis faces the sternest test of her comeback to professional tennis after drawing French Open champion Justine Henin-Hardenne in the opening round of the Sydney International starting on Sunday.

The clash of the two former world No.1s is the marquee first-round match-up at the $1.3 million Australian Open lead-up event at Olympic Park.

Australian star Samantha Stosur, runner-up last year to countrywoman Alicia Molik, opens against eighth seed Nicole Vaidisova of the Czech Republic.

After his early exit this week in Adelaide, Lleyton Hewitt has been handed a great opportunity to gain much-needed match practice ahead of the Melbourne Park grand slam, drawing a qualifier in the first round.

Hewitt is the top seed and defending champion and chasing an unprecedented fifth title in Sydney.

Fellow Australian Chris Guccione is up against fifth seed Juan Carlos Ferrero, the Spanish former world No.1 he so spectacularly eliminated from the event in the first round two years ago.

Oh WOW...i hope this can be CONFIRMED quickly. This could be good for Hingis. I know she is tired from last week ...so this could be a quick test tosee where she is at against a solid top 10 player.
If she wins ..GREAT! If she loses then she would have still gottin in 7 matches before the Ausie Open ( including doubles ) and an extended rest could be good for her before the Ausie Open ;)

Yes but Someone said they are using the new rankings without the bonus points so juju would only be seeded 5th....
