Maria will play her first tournament of 2011 at the ASB Classic in Auckland which begins on January 3rd. This will be Maria’s first appearance in New Zealand.
Maria talks about playing Auckland: Change, change, change!! Going to start 2011 a little different this year. I am happy to let everyone know that I will be playing in New Zealand for the first time in my career at the WTA event in Auckland. It’s always fun playing in new places so I am really excited about trying something new. I hope to see all my friends in New Zealand the first week of January!
