Kolkata, Sep 17 (UNI) As if the divas of world tennis featuring in the Sunfeast Open '07 were not enough to set the city of joy brimming over, the veritable god of world cricket Sachin Tendulkar will be in action here tomorrow at the Netaji Indoor Stadium.

The little maestro will be wearing his sporting gear but only this time it would be a tennis racquet as he will be involved in fun-tennis with some of the marquee players of the tournament.

Incidentally, it was the tennis elbow that had him Tendulkar low for some seven months.

While Sania Mirza, who everyone hopes will recover from her wrist injury, will be a part of the tennis promo along with Mahesh Bhupathi, some other big names could also get involved.

It may be recalled that last time Sania blazed the floors at the Netaji Indoor Stadium here, Sourav Ganguly was egging her on every stroke and move.

Globosports vice-president Anirban Das Blah told UNI, ''Sachin (Tendulkar) will be here tomorrow at the stadium to get involved in a game of fun tennis.'' If the tournament has attracted the likes of Martina Hingis and Anastasia Myskina in the past, then it is a roll call of stars this time round.

Daniela Hantuchova, Marion Bartoli, Maria Krilenko and Sania Mirza are ready to set the courts afire for the WTA tier III event with a prize money of 175,000 dollar.

Shahrukh Khan has already been involved in the promotion of the event and now with Tendulkar setting up a date with the city, people are just lapping it up.

Meanwhile, Globosports, the promoters of the event, have arranged for sell of tickets at all CCD outlets for the show.
