Myskina, Sania, Sprem to feature in WTA Sunfeast Open
KOLKATA, AUG 21 (PTI)

A number of top women tennis players of the world including world no. 14 Anastasia Myskina of Russia and Indian tennis sensation Sania Mirza would feature in the USD 170,000 WTA Sunfeast Open, 2005 to be held here on September 19-25.

Announcing this here today, tournament director Jaidip Mukherjea said altogether 23 players from 18 countries have confirmed their participation in Sunfeast Open, the biggest prize money tournament in South Asia this year.

Besides Myskina and world no. 48 Sania, the other top draws would be world no. 17 Karolina Sprem of Croatia, popular Thai star Tamarine Tanasugarn and Japan's Rika Fujiwara.

Backed by some impressive performances, India's another rising talent Shikha Uberoi has also made it to the main draw.

The tournament, being organised by tennis ace Mahesh Bhpathi's Globosport India, would be played at the renovated Netaji Indoor stadium.

Mukherjea said apart from those in the main draw, three wild card entrants for the tournament would be announced before the start of the qualifying rounds on September 18.

He said the tournament committee was trying to bring another top player but refused to divulge the name.

Speaking on the occasion, West Bengal Sports Minister Subhas Chakraborty said the tournament, supported by the state government to put the name of the metropolis in the map of world tennis, would become an annual event. Chief Minister Buddhadev Bhattacharya would inaugurate the tournament on August 19 while Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly has expressed his desire to be present on the final day, he said.

I hope they change the date of the tourney from next year. Having it in a week where there are no other Asian WTA events would do wonders for the field.

I've noticed it's the same for ITF events. Indian ones always clash with other Asian ones...
