Erakovic earns Auckland Classic wildcard

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 13/12/2016

Top-ranked New Zealander Marina Erakovic has earned a wildcard for next month's ASB Classic in Auckland.

Ranked 105 in the world, Erakovic joins a strong field headed by Serena and Venus Williams, and which also includes former world No.1 players Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark and Ana Ivanovic (Serbia).

The Auckland tournament will serve as a warm-up for the Australian Open later in the month, where Erakovic has made the main draw.

Erakovic's best performance at the Classic came in the 2007 event, when she upset top seed and world No.22 Vera Zvonareva before being beaten 3-6 5-7 in the semi-finals by Aravane Rezai of France.
