Bring on live tennis in Auckland


Sabine Lisicki vs Yanina Wickmayer 2011 ASB Classic
Lucky me, I know the right people and got hired as Social Media Manager for Tennis Auckland a few months ago. Auckland has long hosted ATP and WTA tourneys - we've had everyone from Rafa and Fed to Sharapova and Kournikova. Recent champs for the ASB Classic were Greta Arn, Yanina Wickmayer and Elena Dementieva, while David Ferrer, John Isner and Juan Martin Del Potro have held the Heineken Open trophy in the past few years.

The ASB Classic starts on 2 January and the men follow the next week with the Heineken Open. I'll be manning the Facebook, Twitter and Youtube accounts as well as the website content. I'll be at all player functions and press conferences so be prepared for lots of behind the scenes stuff.

Please follow the news on the ASB Classic and Heineken Open Twitter accounts as we countdown to big player announcements. Exciting stuff!

Will post links to the Facebook pages soon - website for the ASB Classic will be relaunching on Monday 3 October. Stay tuned!
