Big night out at the ASB Arena

Big night out at the ASB Arena

The ASB Classic kicks off with a bang today, with one of the most exciting evening sessions organisers and fans could have hoped for – Czech Republic’s, Andrea Hlaváčková versus tournament draw card, Venus Williams.


Hlaváčková arrives in Auckland off the back of an impressive 2013 doubles season, winning the US Open in both the mixed and women’s events, the semi-finals of the French Open with Lucie Hradecká, and the Wimbledon quarter finals also with Hradecká. She’ll no doubt be hoping she can translate this doubles success into her singles game, as she takes on one of the all-time greats.


The singles match will be followed by New Zealand number one, Marina Erakovic’s 2014 ASB Classic debut as she takes to the court with defending champion, Cara Black. The pair will take on trans-Tasman duo Abigail Guthrie (NZL) and Sacha Jones (AUS).


Tickets are still available at the gate for this epic opening night of the ASB Classic.
