When we hear the word “Bali”, what will be the first thing that comes to our mind? If it was me, i would say, Bali, an island full of attraction, has surely become a favorite place for many tourists, both local and international. even some hollywood celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, admit that Bali is a perfect place to spend their holiday. This is also what these tennis stars say about Bali.
Several tennis players who just competed in Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions, an international tennis tournament held in Bali, say that they had a good time in Bali. check the story,
Bali made sure its high-profile guests from the WTA would have good reason to remember their stay on the Island of the Gods.
In return, the tennis stars who competed in the Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions put on a show Indonesia won’t forget any time soon.
Even before the first serve had been hit, all eight women’s players were describing the tournament to friends and fans as “memorable.”
From day one, organizers lined up the best Bali has to offer — from surfing clinics to spa pampering sessions — much to the delight of the athletes.
“It’s a one-of-a-kind tournament,” Russia’s Alisa Kleybanova said. “I hope I can come back here for a vacation, or I hope I can qualify here again next year.”
Ana Ivanovic, whose matches drew the biggest crowd at the Bali Convention Center, will surely remember her time in Nusa Dua.
On the eve of Sunday’s final, organizers held a charity dinner to benefit the Bali Smile Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides medical assistance to people with craniofacial disabilities.
Among the items auctioned off was a ceramic plate signed by all the players participating in the Tournament of Champions, Ivanovic’s outfit from last month’s Beijing tournament and T-shirts donated by Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic.
