Seles for ASB Classic?


Richard Plamer hoping to secure the likes of Monica Seles for this summer's ASB tennis classic in Auckland



22 August 2003

Monica Seles is on the shopping list for this summer's ASB tennis classic in Auckland.

Tournament organiser Richard Palmer is hoping to secure some big names as he heads off to New York to watch the US Open, starting early next week.

Palmer has his eye on the likes of former world number one Seles, and up and comer Maria Sharapova.

He says they are looking to sign players on the way out of the rankings and up and coming stars, which means Seles and Sharapova are perfect.

He says it will be an interesting time, especially with a few of the big names no longer playing.

Richard Palmer says the retirements of Martina Hingis and Aranxta Sanchez Vicario limits the players he can approach, and possibly limits options elsewhere.

Yes. She'll have injury protected ranking for 6 events on Nov 28, 2003. (I think 6 is the #?)
8 is the # ;)

What they are pulling for that event already. There is so much points still left on the table for Maria to pull for that event so soon.

Auckland is a good place to comeback from away for 6 months.
