#1 Tennis player in the world 2013
Budapest’s modern Syma Event and Congress Centre is set to once again host some of the biggest names in the world of women’s tennis when the Europe/Africa Division 1 Fed Cup qualifying tournament is held here from February 4-7.
Like last year, the tournament will feature several top 100 players. Expected to join Hungary’s own burgeoning star Timea Babos are young guns Heather Watson (Great Britain) and Elina Svitolina (Ukraine) and a trio of former world #1 players, including Belarus’ Victoria Azarenko, and Serbia’s dynamic duo of Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic.
As a special treat for Hungarian tennis fans, Martina Hingis – recently elected into the Tennis Hall of Fame, five-time Grand Slam champion and one of the best players ever to play the sport – will make a special appearance on Saturday, February 7 to sign autographs.
Hungary will play host to 14 other European teams, including traditional tennis powerhouses such as Great Britain and Serbia, for the opportunity to be one of two teams to qualify for the prestigious World Group Division Two tournament next year. The Budapest Times has all you need to know about the Fed Cup – who is playing, when they play, how to get tickets and who to watch – right here in our handy Fed Cup Viewers’ Guide.
