Men's field at 2008 Pilot Pen

World No. 13 Fernando Verdasco and World No. 19 and Australian Open finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, along with a host of international stars, headline the men's field of Pilot Pen Tennis.

Verdasco, who is currently at a career-high ranking, reached the finals of Nottingham just a few weeks ago and followed that with a fourth round appearance at Wimbledon. In addition, earlier this year he reached the quarterfinals of Valencia and the Masters Series event in Hamburg. Tsonga, who is having a career year, advanced to his first Grand Slam final earlier this year at the Australian Open before falling to World No. 3 Novak Djokovic. En route to the finals, he convincingly defeated World No. 2 and newly crowned Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal, and his all-court game, charisma and raw talent tantalized the crowds in Melbourne. This year he also reached the semifinals of Adelaide and Casablanca.

Women's field at 2008 Pilot Pen

Former World No. 1 and two-time Grand Slam champion Amelie Mauresmo (No. 36), along with six of the top 20 players in the world, including Agnieszka Radwanska (No. 10), Agnes Szavay (No. 14), Marion Bartoli (No. 15), Victoria Azarenka (No. 16), Maria Kirilenko (No. 18) and Alize Cornet (No. 20) will lead the 2008 women's field of Pilot Pen Tennis.

Mauresmo, who won the Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2006, will be making her eighth trip to the Pilot Pen where she has had tremendous success reaching the quarterfinals five times (1998, 1999, 2001, 2002, 2006), the semifinal (2003) and the final (2005). This year she has reached the quarterfinals of Gold Coast, Paris, Dubai and Amelia Island.
