Kolkata, Sep 14 (UNI) With Sunfeast 07 getting underway in the next 48 hours, the fans will witness much more than just hotshot tennis that has already set the city spinning.
If it is Sachin Tendulkar sharing the Court-1 at Netaji Indoor Stadium with Mahesh Bhupathai and Sania Mirza in a mixed doubles match on September 18 fizzing it up for the fans, then there is a lot more at stake.
But all the fanfare begins as early as Sunday. On September 16, a buggy ride with all the players along the Ganges followed by a fashion show will rave up the third Sunfeast Open.
The fashion show other than featuring some of the top models from the city and outside, will also showcase the likes of Daniela Huntuchova, Marion Bartolli, Maria Kirilenko, Shevedova and Radionova pumping up the excitement moving on the ramps, with our own Sania Mirza. They will be showcasing the Miss players collections.
The following day, which is also the first day of the tournament proper, an outdoor event would showcase a game between Mahesh Bhupathi and Sania Mirza promoting the raquet sport.
On September 19 Daniela Hantuchova and Maria Kirilenko will be invited to the Avenue of Stars in the morning, followed by a pasta party that will be held in the afternoon where one of the players will cook with the chef.
However, Sunfeast WTA Tennis tournament preserves the best for the last with ''Winner to wear a sari'' event on September 24.
There could be a million visions imagining which one of the divas will scorch Netaji Indoor Stadium with the winner's painting dressed in a sari.
