Azarenka makes it 5 out of the top 20 at Pattaya Tennis Open - Thailand - Pattaya - Sports - tennis

The PTT Pattaya Open has attracted 5 of the world’s top 20 players, after teenager star Victoria Azarenka from Belarus ranked No 15 in the world became the latest player to confirm her participation in the tournament.

The 1.80 metre tall Belarusian first came to prominence as a junior where she achieved the remarkable feat of winning all four junior Grand Slams as well as being named Junior World Champion in 2005. Since then she has made steady progress and in 2008 broke into both the singles and doubles top 20 on the back of 2 final appearances in Brisbane and Prague and 3 semi-finals in Berlin, Montreal and Stuttgart. Her most outstanding performance though in 2008 was in doubles when she reached the finals of the Australian Open with partner Shahar Peer.

Azarenka joins a stunning line-up of top 20 stars in Pattaya, which includes No 7 Vera Zvonereva, No 11 Nadia Petrova, No 12 Caroline Wozniacki, and No 19 Dominika Cibulkova.

Despite the strong field for the 2009 PTT Pattaya Open, the organizers of the tournament will maintain ticket prices at the same level as 2008:

Prices are 200 baht for 7-8 February, 300, 500 and 800 baht for 9 – 12 February and 300, 500, 800 and 1,000 baht for 13 - 15 February.
