Malaysian Open Tennis 2011

It’s time again for the third Malaysian Open 2011 in Kuala Lumpur. We will update with pictures and info as the tournament progress but so far all our Malaysian players have been knocked out of the qualifying rounds. Well we cant expect much from a non tennis playing nation like ours but thumbs up to all local players for your continuous effort in playing for this country. Hopefully one day we will have a Nicol Ann David or Lee Chong Wei in tennis?

There are only 28 players on the single’s main draw & 16 on doubles. Live coverage will be shown on Astro Supersport2. Tickets at stadium are quite affordable & prices start from Rm30 for final match!
