The star-studded meet will take place from September 22 to 30 at the Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani, with more than 70 world-class players including No 2 Rafael Nadal and powerful server Andy Roddick participating.

Organisers BEC Tero Entertainment provided a training course for the beauty contestants, teaching them the rules and regulations of the game on Saturday.

Wild-card Danai Udomchoke said the presence of the beauties will make it more than a tennis competition. "Spectators will be entertained not only by the form of the players but also the beauty of the ball girls.

"It's a good idea. Players quickly get over their fatigue when they see them smiling and handing towels," Danai said.





MISS THAILAND World Beauty Pageant contestants who will be the ball girls during the Thailand Open.
very nice

whatever floats your boat, I mean most sports have found that cheerleaders , that's what they are right , help with attendance and calm down the public which is all good

No surprise here. Just like all the articles said....tournament organizers knew damn well Rafa wasn't going to be there.

Gotta sell those tickets...

Re: Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated 9/23/07)

I just heard from someone in Serbia that Nole said in the post DC press conference that his next tournaments are Vienna, Madrid, Paris and Shangai. No mention of Bangkok. That goes right along with what he said to the press a week ago and what his official website says.

^^ Strange that Nole didn't officially withdraw - won't he get fined now? Maybe he'll go for the appearance $$$ and tank his first match.

That's pretty disgusting indeed. Well, perfectly in line with one of those current Disney Deville-ideas to keep entry lists a secret in the near future.
It's a disgrace to all the fans buying tickets in the expectation their fav will turn up. And to the player as well, BTW.

He should get fined - or indeed, catch the $$$$ and tank his first match. We'll see what happens. Neither is a pretty sight, IMHO...
