Caroline Wozniacki, S.Williams, Dementieva, Azarenka and world No.13 Samantha Stosur joins the Sydney women’s field

Thursday 29 October 2009

Teenage superstar and current world No. 4 Caroline Wozniacki is the latest confirmed starter for January’s Medibank International Sydney.

The US Open finalist is the fourth top 10 woman to commit to the January 10 to 16 event, along with Serena Williams, Elena Dementieva and Victoria Azarenka.

The 19-year-old Dane confirmed today that she would be returning to Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre after reaching the quarterfinals of the event in 2009.

“I am really looking forward to coming back to Sydney, which is such a beautiful city,” Wozniacki said.

“I played some great tennis there earlier this year and it provided me with a lot of confidence because it gave me a great start to the season.”

Wozniacki, currently playing at the season-ending Sony Ericsson Championships in Doha, had a breakout season in 2009, finishing runner up to Kim Clijsters at the US Open in September and winning titles in Ponte Vedre Beach, Eastbourne and New Haven.

“2009 has been an amazing year for me and to reach my first Grand Slam final at the US Open was an important stepping stone in my career,” Wozniacki continued.

Tournament Director Craig Watson said he was delighted to add the exciting Danish star to the impressive line-up of players heading to Sydney in the new year.

“We are expecting to have seven of the top ten women in the world at the event next year and Caroline is a welcome addition to our already star-studded field at the Medibank International Sydney in 2010,” Watson said.

“She is a talented and engaging athlete who won over the crowds in Sydney earlier this year when she took on Serena Williams in an intense quarterfinal clash on Ken Rosewall Arena.”

Wozniacki held three match points in the third set against No.1 seed Williams in their enthralling encounter. Williams went on to claim the semifinal spot 6-7(5) 6-3 7-6(3).

In addition to being the first Danish player to reach a Grand Slam Singles Final (Open Era) in New York, Wozniacki reached the 4th round at Wimbledon.

Wozniacki was also a finalist in Memphis, Charleston, Madrid and Bastad in 2009 and boosted her world ranking from No. 12 in January to her current career high position of No.4.

S.Williams, Wozniacki, Dementieva, Azarenka and world No.13 Samantha Stosur headline the women’s field for the 2010 event, while top 20 men Lleyton Hewitt, Gael Monfils and Tomas Berdych are also confirmed.

The Medibank International Sydney will be held at Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre from Sunday 10 January to Saturday 16 January 2010.

Stubbs and Raymond set to reunite.

Friday 13 November 2009

More than 15 years since their debut as a doubles pair, Rennae Stubbs and Lisa Raymond are reuniting to play the 2010 season together, starting at the Medibank International Sydney.

Stubbs turns 39 next March and says she is confident that the pair will be able to draw on the experience that carried them to three Grand Slam women’s doubles titles including the Australian Open in 2000.

I haven't heard about how her injury is healing, however, the NZ Herald today reports: (http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=10610084)

ASB Classic organisers are hopeful they are yet to announce their top seed for the Auckland tennis tournament in January.

Italian Flavia Pennetta, the world No 12, was today confirmed for the WTA event, making her the highest ranked player in the field at the moment.

However, three others ranked above Pennetta remain in tournament director Brenda Perry's sights - Serb Jelena Jankovic, Pole Agnieszka Radwanska and Frenchwoman Marion Bartoli, the world Nos 8, 10 and 11 respectively.

Jankovic and Bartoli are also former Classic winners.

Serena a confirmed starter for Sydney

Tuesday 1 December 2009

World No. 1 Serena Williams today re-confirmed her commitment to January’s Medibank International Sydney and will begin the 2010 season in Australia.

The 11-times Grand Slam Singles champion was cleared by the Grand Slam Committee to play at the Medibank International Sydney and defend her title at the Australian Open.

The American said she was looking forward to heading back to Sydney in early January to lead a field that is expected to include at least eight of the top ten women in the world.

“I really enjoyed my time in Sydney this year and I am really looking forward to being back there in just a few weeks time. It’s pretty amazing how quickly the year comes around,” Williams said.

“Once again it is going to be a great field and I am really happy to part of that. I look forward to seeing so many of my Australian fans in Sydney”.

Tournament Director Craig Watson said he was pleased that the US Open incident had been resolved and is looking forward to welcoming the world No. 1 back to the Medibank International Sydney for the second consecutive year.

“Serena is a genuine superstar in world sport and we are delighted that she has re-confirmed her commitment to the Medibank International Sydney,” Watson said.

Williams headlines an outstanding women’s field that already includes Svetlana Kuznetsova, Caroline Wozniacki, Elena Dementieva, Victoria Azarenka and Australian No. 1 Samantha Stosur.

World No. 13 Gael Monfils, Lleyton Hewitt, Marcos Baghdatis and Tomas Berdych are also confirmed for the men’s draw.

Entries for the Medibank International Sydney 2010 close this week and full playing fields will be announced early next week.

Tickets to the Medibank International Sydney 2010 are on sale now through Ticketek and can be purchased online at www.ticketek.com.au or 1300 888 104.

The Medibank International Sydney will be held at Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre from Sunday 10 January to Saturday 16 January 2010.


We'll have to wait one week before the List is out on the website?

Safina will play.

Dinara Safina is hoping to make a strong start to her 2010 season at the Medibank International Sydney, which begins on Sunday.

The world No.2 hit the practice courts in Sydney on Tuesday despite still feeling the effects of her 30-hour flight from Nice to Australia, via Frankfurt and Dubai.

Safina, who hasn’t played since October, said she felt refreshed and ready to begin her 2010 campaign.

“It’s a great tournament to prepare for Melbourne,” she said.

“The jetlag and the heat – for me, this is the toughest thing about coming to Australia.”

“I’m 100 per cent. I’m ready to play.”

“If I play my best, let’s see what can happen.”
