(8/8/2005)

Wismilak International Tennis Tournament in Bali has attracted the biggest gun in women's tennis, world number 1 Lindsay Davenport, to play in Bali in September.

"We are very happy to announce that Lindsay will play in Bali. We had talks with her a couple of days ago and she said she was anxious to come," tournament director Kevin Livesey announced on Thursday, August 4, 2005.

The big-serving, powerful hitting groundstroker from California has amassed 47 singles crowns and 35 doubles titles. She has won all the Grand Slams with the exception of Roland Garros, and lost a marathon Wimbledon final in July to Venus Williams after holding match point.

Svetlana Kuznetsova Also Confirmed for Bali

Davenport and world number four and defending champion Svetlana Kuznetsova are the two top 10 players confirmed for the US$225,000 Bali tournament which will run from Sept. 11 to Sept. 18. Other high-ranked players are number 11 Patty Schnyder of Switzerland, whose left-handed game always presents a threat; number 13 Alicia Molik of Australia, who is recovering from an inner ear infection; and number 19 Jelena Jankovic of Serbia-Montenegro.

"I'm delighted to announce that we have a strong field in the tournament in Bali. The reputation of the tournament as one that offers fierce competition in a relaxing environment is a tribute to all those who make Wismilak International such a popular event with both players and spectators," Livesey said.

Top Asian Players Coming to Bali

The emerging group of young Asian players is represented by India's Sania Mirza, whose impressive performances in U.S. Open tune-ups this month will likely bring her ranking from the current 59 into the top 50 next week, and number 61 Akiko Morigami.

Indonesia's Angelique "Angie" Widjaja, still recovering from knee surgery last November, has been included in the main draw thanks to a wild card. Angie, who won the tournament in 2002 but whose ranking has dropped from the low 70s to 219, will receive one of the two wildcards on offer.

"Angie is Indonesia's great player. Unfortunately she has been injured lately. She is not playing in the U.S. Open but she hopes that she will be fit to play in Bali," Livesey said. He added that the other wildcard recipient would be known about one week before the tournament date.

Indonesia's highest-ranked player after Angie is Wynne Prakusya (391), followed by Ayu Fani Damayanti (471), Romana Tedjakusuma (487) and Sandy Gumulya (566).
