Note: I was asked to remove this post by the organiser (not the first time I was asked to do so) but I'm going to repost this anyway.
I'm a blogger. I write based on what I heard and experienced. I can write whatever I want without reporting or explaining to anyone.
Besides, I don't think there's any harm in creating a buzz about this event. It's just like spreading the buzz about Justine Henin's comeback. It was good for her publicity. The same thing applies to this event too.
I'm still thinking about last week's ATP tournament and now I heard there could be another exhibition match in Kuala Lumpur coming this December.
And let's not forget that in February next year, Kuala Lumpur will host the WTA players in the Malaysia Tennis Classic.
My source (quite a reliable one) informed me that Showdown of Champions is set to take place sometime on December 19 & 20, 2009 at the Melawati Stadium.
The launching could be sometime on October 26 by Anna Kournikova; possibly going to take place at Starhill.
My source also added that 2 Russians, 1 from China and 1 from India will take part in this classy event.
If the Showdown organisers keep their promise to the fans at the Putra Stadium last year, we could be having Maria Sharapova right here in Kuala Lumpur.
Now let's wait for the official news.
