East meets West in the PTT Bangkok Open tennis

The US$200,000 PTT Bangkok Open professional women’s tennis tournament, which is being staged at the Rama Gardens Hotel, Bangkok from 07 – 15 October has attracted a strong field which matches the best of the Asian players against the emerging stars from Europe in a classic East versus West confrontation over the nine days of the tournament.

H.E. Suwat Liptapanlop, Deputy Prime Minister and President of the Lawn Tennis Association of Thailand presiding over the press conference to announce details of the tournament revealed that “ top Asian stars as Sania Mirza, the 19 year-old Indian starlet, Chinese duo of Li Na and Zheng Jie and Japan’s Shinobu Asagoe will be competing in Bangkok against emerging stars from Europe as Anabel Medina Garrigues the Spanish No 1, Marion Bartoli and Natalie Dechy from France and Lucie Safarova from the Czech Republic. In addition we have Australia’s Alicia Molik and Agentina’s Gisella Dulko to add to the mix. He added that he was especially looking forward to seeing this year’s double grand slam champions Zheng Jie and Jan Zi in action in Bangkok, especially after their impressive championship win at Wimbledon last month.”

Mr Chaiyapak Siriwat, Chairman of the Organising Committee added “It is great to have the top Asian and European players competing in Thailand, they will add excitement to the event which already has a host of well-known names lined-up. We should not forget our Fed Cup pair of Tamarine Tanasugarn and Suchanan Vilaiprasert who are both capable of causing some upsets.”

The PTT Bangkok Open is the largest professional tennis event for women in Thailand and will be held over nine days at the Rama Gardens Hotel tennis complex in Bangkok.

so she is in the Main Draw for both tournaments?
does that mean she has a week to decide which tournament she wants to play? :confused:

Na Li did not enter Bangkok. Her name is in Moscow.

She lost in the 1st round in Pattaya, THA in January this year. May be she had bad memory playing in THA.
