VENUS RETURNS TO DEFEND HER CROWN
Headlining the ASB Classic Women’s field for the 3rd consecutive time will be Venus Williams. The former World number one, who has formed a love affair with the Auckland event in recent years, will be looking to improve on her incredible 46 career titles and defend her 2015 ASB Classic crown.
Tournament Director, Karl Budge is delighted to have Venus back on New Zealand soil, “Venus has really made Auckland her own over the last couple of years winning the title this year and making the final in 2014. We have been so privileged to have her support and I have no doubt she will look to add another ASB Classic trophy to her bedroom wall.”
The 2016 ASB Classic will offer a brand new experience for tennis fans and a truly international line-up, celebrating world-class men’s and women’s tennis on the local stage.
