Now this was my 2nd time attending the WTA BMW Malaysian Open (the first one being in 2011) and as I had quite an enjoyable experience the first time round I eagerly headed over to the Bukit Kiara Equestrian Club on 28 February 2012 for the Kronenbourg 1664 night.
This year’s tournament features some big international tennis stars such as Sania Mirza, Jelena Dokic, and Jankovic Jelena.
We got to watch the first featured match of the evening with Yvonne Meusburger from Austria versus Shuai Peng of China. The game was interrupted on several occasions due to the rain but Shuai Peng eventually won the match in three sets, 6-1, 4-6 and 6-2.
Among the notable guests was Dato’ Jimmy Choo who was nice enough to mingle and pose for pictures with guests.
The second qualifying match featured former world number one Jelena Jankovic versus up and coming French tennis star, Caroline Garcia.
After the match Carlsberg Malaysia’s Managing Director Soren Ravn, and guests surprised Jankovic who won the grueling match 7-6, 4-6, 7-6 with a tennis ball-shaped birthday cake in the VIP lounge.
Enjoy the photos!
