Players get head start to prepare for Bali tourney
Sep 08, 2006

Several players are already taking to the courts in Nusa Dua, Bali, to prepare for Monday's opening of the US$255,000 Wismilak International.The week-long tournament, the only major women's tennis tournament in Southeast Asia, follows the two-week U.S. Open in New York City. The final grand slam of the year has been disrupted by rain, with a backlog of matches after play was washed out on several days. "Some international tennis players have arrived in Bali, including Russia's Elena Likhovtseva and Vera Zvonareva," Wismilak International sponsorship and marketing executive N. Balachandra told reporters on the sidelines of a media gathering Thursday. "Some other players who lost late in the rain-affected U.S. Open, like defending champion Lindsay Davenport, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Patty Schnyder, are expected to fly out today (Thursday) and will arrive on Friday." The draw, following the weekend's qualifying event on the hard courts of the Grand Hyatt, will be held Sunday. Organizers will try to accommodate the schedule of Serbian Jelena Jankovic, the hottest player on tour at the moment who has reached the semifinals in New York. "Perhaps, she will have her first round match on Tuesday, or she might get a bye," Balachandra said. He added that four young local players -- Ayu Fani Damayanti, Septi Mende, Lavinia Tananta and Lutfiana Aris Budiharto -- requested wildcards through the Indonesian Tennis Association (Pelti). A decision will be made Saturday. Other local players who will play in the tournament are 2001 champion Angelique "Angie" Widjaja and veteran Romana Tedjakusuma. The tournament will also have a special guest, Todd Woodbridge, the nine-time Wimbledon doubles champion from Australia, who is giving several coaching clinics to juniors and students here at the invitation of Commonwealth Bank. The bank also is a sponsor of the Wismilak International. "I want to continue to promote the game of tennis here since tennis is my passion in life and it has also given me many rewards. I want to see it grow, especially in Asia," said the 35-year-old, who was famed as one half of the "Woodies" partnership with Mark Woodforde. Woodbridge, who recently helped coach the Australian Davis Cup team and a junior league in Melbourne, will coach students at Global Jaya International School and the Australian International School in Jakarta, and Bali International School and Australian International School in Denpasar. He described his visit to the city as "a fond memory", as he teamed with Woodforde to finish runner-up in the ATP World Doubles Championships in Senayan in 1993. They lost to Sweden's Jan Apell and Jonas Bjorkman -- Woodbridge's partner when he won his last Wimbledon crown in 2004.
