Roger Federer and James Blake as well as tennis legends Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe will be arriving Malaysia on Monday!
Federer and Blake will not only be playing each other in the Showdown of Champions tennis exhibition on Nov 18 but will also be giving valuable tips to the national junior players.
But you must be asking, what's in store for the fans?
The organiser confirmed that there will be a meet-the-fans/autograph-signing session with Roger Federer on November 18 at KLCC foyer from 1145 - 1225.
During the same time, James Blake will personally conduct a tennis clinic for the LTAM juniors at Mandarin Oriental tennis court. Aren't they lucky???
Blake is like the tai-kor in the US after Andy Roddick. If you have followed my post on the US Open, you know Blake is so huge, you don't want to miss the opportunity to meet this player in person!
And guys, if you are a fan of Roger, don't neglect Mirka too, ok? Ask her for a photo, if you have the opportunity. She gets bored too easily especially when Roger is busy entertaining his fans.
Last week, the CEO of LD Sports Adlan "Mr Blackberry Guy" Zabri told the press that fans should not wait too long to get their tickets as nearly half have been sold.
If you still haven't know, one lucky fan will drive out of Putra Stadium on Nov 18 in a Proton Neo car.
"The cheapest tickers (RM108) have been sold out and the most expensive (RM498) are nearly gone leaving only the intermediate ones available."Also Ning Baizura and Jaclyn Victor will be performing at the pre-event and during game change overs ! Yay! Now that's some class (compared to last year's boy group).
"We can also announce that a Proton Neo car will be given away on the night of the matches to one lucky fan," he said.
Tickets for the Showdown of Champions range from RM188 to RM498, and are obtainable at the official website www.showdownkl2008.com.
Here's my tickets already! Are you sitting somewhere near me at the silver category???
I advise you guys to get the tickets from Axcess outlet directly instead of going through the online method. I said so because I thought it's kinda hassle to queue up again on event day to get the actual tickets.
By the way, do join our Unofficial Showdown of Champions Facebook Event Group for more detail information.
