Nole and Tsonga to Kick Off 2009 Season in Brisbane

World number 3, Novak Djokovic, and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will help inaugurate the new tennis event in Brisbane, where they will launch their 2009 campaigns.

As Australian Open champion and Australian Open runner-up, both players will highlight the stellar field which also includes French Open champion, Ana Ivanovic, on the women's side.

The new tournament will be the first of the Australian Open Series and will take place between January 4th and 11th.

It is the perfect way to begin my Australian campaign. I have heard great things about Brisbane but never had the opportunity to visit,” Djokovic said.

I am excited to be coming to a new event in a sensational new stadium. It is going to be great to renew my acquaintance with the very supporting Australian tennis fans.
