Championship Tennis in Bali September 7-14, 2008

Organizers Promises Top Women Players will Appear at Nusa Dua Tournament.

(1/26/2008) The Commonwealth Tennis Tournament will be held in Bali September 7-14, 2008 with organizers hoping to lure Lindsay Davenport and Svetlana Kuznetsova for the Bali event.

Kevin Livesey, Tournament Director told the press on Thursday, January 17, 2008, that he is hopeful that Patty Schnyder, world number 3 ranked Jelena Jankovic and Indonesian tennis star Angelique Widjaja will appear on the center courts at Nusa Dua. Davenport won the Bali event in 2005 and 2007 and Kuznetsova was champion in 2002, 2000 and 2006.

The Bali tournament, part of the Sony Ericsson-WTA tour, is now considered the largest event of its kinds in Southeast Asia.

The tournament will be held on the courts of the Grand Hyatt Bali Resort-Hotel, Nusa Dua in Bali.

Livesey said that the goal of the 2008 tournament would be to provide an even higher quality of play than the very high standards set in previous years.

Livesey said that in the year leading up to the September event, the organizers of the Commonwealth Bank Tennis Classic will continue to announce the appearance of top women tennis stars as they confirm their participation.
