Klizan confirmed for Heineken Open

Related

World number 30 Martin Klizan is the latest player confirmed for January's Heineken Open in Auckland.

Tournament organiser Karl Budge says the 23-year-old Slovakian is a real player of the future.

"A huge year on tour for him.

"He's won ATP newcomer of the year, and a jump from outside the top 120 in the world to inside the top 30, he's had a barnstorming year."

Klizan's biggest scalp is that of world number eight Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the US Open this year.

The full field will be announced on Wednesday.
