Dementieva, Kirilenko, Mirza, Zheng Jie for Showdown KL 2009

Look who spilled the beans regarding Showdown of Champions 2009!

The Tourism Minister of Malaysia herself announced recently that the yearly event will take place on December 19-20.

The exhibition match will see Elena Dementieva, Maria Kirilenko (not Sharapova as promised in Showdown of Champions last year), Sania Mirza and Zheng Jie (in sequence).

Nevertheless, it is still a good line-up as we'll be having four good looking and talented tennis players in Kuala Lumpur.

It's time for local tennis fans to get to know more women tennis players other than Sharapova.

Personally, I think this is a smart move by the organisers who made this event sort of like a "women tennis preview' as we'll be having a WTA tennis tournament in February next year.

Finally I'm back! I've been busy catching up with work after a short trip back to hometown.

Novak Djokovic and Svetlana Kuznetsova won Beijing Open last weekend while Jo-Wilfried Tsonga took the Rakuten Japan Open title.

This week all the players (excluding names like Roger Federer and Andy Murray) are in Shanghai for the Shanghai ATP Masters 1000.

A gimmick tennis court were setup in one of Shanghai's world's fastest commercial high-speed trains.

the “fastest tennis in the world", Tsonga took on Fernando Verdasco on an exhibition tennis as the train reached a cruising speed of 268 mph during the 7 minutes, 20 seconds it took to make the 18.6-mile trip from Longyard Rail Road station in Pudong to Pudong International Airport.
