Hello everybody and welcome back to Sara Errani's official website, where you can always find the latest news, updates, match records, announcements and media contents of your favourite italian player.
Before getting to the first part of the season in Australia, we have just launched this brand new year with a very welcome stop in the stunning Hua Hin, Thailand for the World Tennis Thailand Championships 2016 - an exhibition tournament that annually hosts both male and female tennis international excellences for a two-match meeting to celebrate New Years Eve.
This year the Hua Hin Centennial Club had the pleasure to welcome Sara Errani, Aga Radwanska - latest winner of 2015 WTA Finals in Singapore - Angelique Kerber and the veteran Venus Williams as its celebrities.
The draw decided the random opponents for this 2016 edition: the Roland Garros finalist faced the American multi-Slam winner while the n.9 ranked German played the 2015 Polish WTA reveleation. The first semifinal saw Radwanska came out as winner with a consistent 6-4, 6-3 over Kerber; as for our warrior, she she just waved 2015 with one of her signature matches: early trailing after the first set, Sarita started to fight back firstly levelling the match with a powerful 6-2, then ending up her rush after a close head-to-head in the final set after a 1h and 40 minutes of play. Final score: 4-6, 6-2, 6-4.
Later on, Sara walked back on court today during another hot thai evening to cross rackets with Aga in order to decide who would be crowned the 2016 World Tennis Thailand Champion. Unfortunately we did not have the chance to watch the match live due to Thailand TV reproduction rights but our Sara put her best as always in today's final even thought she did not manage to defeat Radwanska. Final score: 1-6, 3-6.
Thanks to all the fans who came to support our champion in Hua Hin and celebrate with us New Years Eve but we do not have further time to rest...onto the next one! Brisbane here we come!
