AUSTRALIAN TEENAGE STAR DESTANEE AIAVA ADDED TO KOOYONG DRAW – WOMEN’S FIELD EXPANDS TO FOUR

Australian teenage prodigy Destanee Aiava has been added to the women’s draw of the 2017 Priceline Pharmacy Kooyong Classic along with China’s second highest ranked player Qiang Wang.

16-year-old Aiava, who is the Australian Junior Champion and also a Kooyong Foundation scholarship holder, will replace compatriot Ajla Tomljanovic who was forced to withdraw from the event while recovering from injury.

The Melburnian will give fans more than a glimpse into the future of Australian tennis as she prepares for her Australian Open debut, for which she has a wildcard as Australian 18 and under champion.

Aivava said a whirlwind couple of weeks will now extend into 2017.

“It’s been such a great few weeks winning the Australian Open wildcard and now being invited to play in the Kooyong Classic. For me, being from Melbourne and training so much at Kooyong it is going to be a fantastic experience playing there in front of home town fans.”

Playing against Sabine, Sorana and Qiang is going to be the perfect preparation for the Australian Open and I can’t wait.”

Coming to Melbourne with a world ranking of 72 the Peter McNamara coached Qiang Wang will be the first Chinese player to take the court at Kooyong.

The pair will join already named players Sabine Lisicki and Sorana Cirstea in the women’s draw, which will see females play at the famous Kooyong stadium for the first time in two decades.

Tournament director Peter Johnston was pleased with how the women’s draw has come together

“We have had such great feedback with the inclusion of the women this year that we have expanded the field to four girls,” Johnston said.

“We are delighted to welcome Destanee who truly is a big part of Australia’s tennis future. The opportunity for her to play against world-class players the week before her Grand Slam singles debut should be the perfect preparation.

“Qiang Wang is an emerging star in China. She is already the Chinese number two ranked woman and an Olympian, and it is great to welcome our first Chinese participant in the history of the Kooyong Classic.”

The men’s draw features six players in the world top 30 rankings, with number 11 and defending champion David Goffin from Belgium leading an exciting group of players that also includes Australian Bernard Tomic.

Joining them is Frenchman Lucas Pouille, Richard Gasquet, world number 20 Ivo Karlovic, Gilles Simon, Borna Coric, Mikhail Youzhny, Yoshihito Nishioka and one player that is yet to be announced.

Zamiast kontuzjowanej Lisicki zagra Wickmayer.

Tak wygląda skład:
Yanina Wickmayer
Qiang Wang
Sorana Cirstea
Destanee Aiava

Jutro mecz Cirstea-Aiava.
-----------------------------

Cytuj:


Fans were thankful that Yanina Wickmayer and Romanian Sorana Cirstea were keen enough to wait for the rain to clear and play a set to decide the 2017 Priceline Pharmacy Kooyong Classic women’s title.

The Belgian took victory in the reduced match 6-4 against the world number 80 with some strong tennis from the backcourt despite a wet and windy afternoon in Melbourne.

“Well it was tough because we were inside the whole day waiting and I had a big practice already this morning as well,” Wickmayer told reporters after receiving the winner’s trophy.

“So it was tough to get into the rhythm and get into the match but I tried to do as good as I could and I tried to get my legs moving because that was pretty much the hardest part.

“I think we both did well going out there trying our best.”

It was the first time women had competed in the tournament at the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club in 23 years in a four-player field that featured Australian teenager Destanee Aiava.

“Yeah it was a very fun event,” Wickmayer added.

“The first time of course for the women in 20 years, it was very nice that I came here it’s a very nice club and place to play tennis.

“It’s the perfect event going in to the Australian Open next week so I was very happy I got invited and I’ve really loved my time here.”

The world number 59 who has been ranked as high as 12 in her career will now look to the first round of the Australian Open where she will play Lucie Safarova from the Czech Republic in the first round.

“Yes I have (played her before),” she said.

“Of course it’s a tough draw, she’s a tough opponent so it’s going to be tough but I’m going to do everything I can to prepare well and to be ready and play as good as I can.”

Cirstea was similarly glad to have any match-play practice on a centre court so close to a Grand Slam and was overall happy with how she hit the ball during her week at Kooyong.

“Yes definitely it was a very long day I was here from 12 o’clock but I was happy to play and I wish I could’ve played a whole match but I’m glad with the set,” she explained.

“It was quite quick I think with the wind and the weather but I think it turned out well.

“Definitely, this can only be very good because you play basically a match – of course it’s not like a tournament, but the fact you have a chair umpire, people watching, you’re on a big court.

“Everything is basically like a match and it gives you that tournament feeling.”

The 26-year-old ranked 80 in the world is feeling confident in her game ahead of her first Grand Slam match of the season Russian left-hander Irina Khromacheva at Melbourne Park next week.

“Yes I’ve seen her but I’ve never played her, but I’ve seen her around,” Cirstea said.

“I know she’s a leftie and has a good touch so I think these days every single match is tough, everyone is playing a level that is so high right now.

“No matter what I try to focus on my side of the court and hopefully that will get me the win.”
