Welcome To Auckland New, Zealand

The stars are arriving from afar to participate in the first tour event of the Season. Congratualations to Maria Sharapova for winning the SV_Fan Cup last week. Who will win this week? Bucket loads of rankings points and money are on the table. Who will take the first cut?


Maria Sharapova would be the favorite for this title after winning last weeks SV_Fan Cup Exhibition. She plays a high risk style of play similar to her training partner Victoria Azarenka. Being the Number 1 Seed her road should be bump free if she displays last weeks form.

Victoria Azarenka will also be a strong contender at this weeks ASB Classic, after making it all the way to the finals last week she should be riding high on confidence knowing she can beat alot of the players. Being the number 2 seed, her road should be fairly easy.


Venus Williams is a fairly consistent player. She would is also one of the most dangerous. She plays a bigger game than both Azarenka and Sharapova however, the mental stability isnt there, but no one wants to see Venus in her side of the draw.

Justine Henin is one of the biggest fighters. Many times last week she came back from the brink to have strong victories. She has so much heart, and give her everything. But will that be enough to go far at this weeks event?

Vaidisova Arrives In Auckland​

Nicole Vaidsova arrived in the beautiful city of Auckland today and was quickly surrounded by adoring fans and reporters. She promptly agreed to do a press conferece with the local media and here is what Nicole had to say about her chances at WSC's first event.

"Man I'm just glad this event is finally here. I've been very anxious to get my first event under my belt, just to see what everyone else is working with. I'm doing a lot of things well on the court now a days and hope to win some matches of this surface. It's not my best, but I hope to compete well despite the surface."​
