Harkleroad gets food poisoning!

In a schocking announcement just now tour director Maria, revealed that the tour's biggest star Ashley Harkleroad if suffering from a severe case of food poisoning, casting doubts on how fit she will be to play the Medibank International (Sydney) in less than 3 days time. Harkleroad, who recently won the Hopman Cup with long time friend James Blake, is currently bed ridden as experts attempt to source the cause of the poisoning.

'I really can't understand what happened, I am always so careful with what I eat. It is true I swallow raw eggs in the morning as part of my fitness regime, but I always make sure I never break the yolk. Apart from that I ate with the rest of the girls in the tournament cantine and none of them have come out with anything.

I think the only other thing I had yesterday was a cake that Justine Henin baked me to congratulate me for my win in Perth. I thought that was really nice of her. I can think of a few people who would want to get me out of the way though. When you're the #1 there will always be jealous people on tour. Sania Mirza and Laura Robson, the tour cleaning maids, might try - but they don't have the mental capacity to come up with something like this.

I can only hope it clears up enough for me to play. Even so I doubt i'll be at my best!'​

Zvonareva arrives in Sydney and faces Sanchez Lorenzo




Russia's Vera Zvonareva arrived today in Sydney when she plays this week​



Sydney, Australia - Today Russian player Vera Zvonareva arrived in Sydney when she will play this week at Medibank International. Zvonareva will try to win her first match of the season because she lost to Kim Clijsters in Auckland last week.

In the fisrt round Vera faces Spaniard Maria Sanchez Lorenzo who never played before. In the eventual second round Zvonareva can face Serbian Jelena Jankovic who is the second seed in Sydney. In the doubles Vera will play with her friend and compatriot Maria Kirilenko.


"I'm very excited for this tournament I really hope to improve my level and win some matches here, to be honest isn't a good draw because I can play Jelena in second round, but everything can happen"
