Ljubicic confirmed for Kooyong tournament
MELBOURNE, Nov 7 (Reuters) - World number eight Ivan Ljubicic will play at the invitational Kooyong Open next January, organisers said on Monday.
Croatia's Ljubicic joins world number one Roger Federer, American Andy Roddick, Germany's Tommy Haas and Argentines David Nalbandian and Guillermo Coria for the tournament in Melbourne from Jan. 11-14.
Two spots remain open in the field for the round-robin tournament, which precedes the Australian Open, the year's first grand slam.
Ljubicic lost the Paris Masters final to the Czech Republic's Tomas Berdych on Sunday.
He has qualified for the Tennis Masters Cup in Shanghai, which begins on Sunday.
