Tennis: First ASB Classic signings to be revealed


Tennis Auckland will announce their first major drawcards for the ASB Tennis Classic this afternoon.

Tournament director Karl Budge is understood to have secured two players ranked in the top 15 although only one will be revealed this afternoon.

Don't be surprised if a former world number one like Caroline Wozniacki, currently ranked 8th, or 14th ranked Ana Ivanovic is unveiled.

It's also thought Budge has secured Australian born British teenager Laura Robson who is ranked 41 in the world and at just 19-years-old has notched up some big name scalps already in her career.
