Andover, MA, November 2008 – Plexipave Sport Surfacing is pleased to announce that this year’s Sony Ericsson Championships are being played on their Plexipave tennis surface.  Plexipave is proud to be selected as the tennis surface of the WTA Tournament, to be played in Doha, Qatar November 4th through November 9th.

The Sony Ericsson Championships are generally considered to be the fifth most prestigious event on the women’s tour after the four Grand Slam tournaments.  They will be played in Doha from 2008 to 2010 before the event moves to Istanbul, Turkey from 2011 to 2013.

To mark the start of this prestigious event, tournament organizers staged a unique tennis match between Ana Ivanovic and Elena Dementieva, on Palm Island in the middle of Doha Bay in the Arabian Gulf.  Set against the stunning backdrop of the Doha skyline, the fun match was held on a Plexipave surfaced replica tennis court built specially for the occasion.

“Plexipave is honored to be the tennis surface for this WTA event”, said Art Tucker, V.P Plexipave. “We are very pleased that our full-cushion Plexipave Prestige tennis surface was selected.”
