Antara - the National News Service, has confirmed that the biggest all-women's tennis tournament in Southeast Asia, will return to Bali for the 5th consecutive year, scheduled to be played in Bali immediately after the US Open Grand Slam.

The Bali 2005 Wismilak International Tennis Tournament, which forms a part of the WTA tour schedule, will be held September 11-18, 2005, at Nusa Dua, Bali

Tournament director, Kevin Livesey, has announced that the total prize purse for the this year's Bali tournament has been set at US$225,000. This makes Wismilak International Bali, the highest cash prize paid in any Southeast Asian tennis tournament.

In 2004, Russian player Svetlana Kuznetsova, after winning the coveted US Open women's singles, traveled directly to Bali to win the Bali event.

Mixing Business with Pleasure

Now entering its 12th year and 5th consecutive year in Bali, the Wismilak International Women's Tennis Tournament is scheduled as a break for the players between major international Grand Slam competitions.

The tournament on the island of the gods is a combination of show tennis and memorable holidays for the players who take part. But, don't underestimate the keen competition that will be presented on center court; nearly a quarter of a million dollars prize purse guarantees players will find themselves conflicted choosing between keeping their minds on the game and the many holiday distractions of Bali's paradise.

Now a permanent fixture on the WTA tour, many players have become so enchanted with Bali that they return year after year, bringing their families along for some relaxation and island exploration.

Venue: Grand Hyatt Bali

As in the past, the 2005 tournament will be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Nusa Dua.
