6:41 am on 27 February 2012

The New Zealand tennis number one, Marina Erakovic, has changed her schedule after losing the final of the WTA Memphis tournament.

Due to head to Mexico for the Acapulco WTA tournament, Erakovic will instead fly to the prestigious Indian Wells WTA event in California, which starts on Thursday week.

The Aucklander, who will rise to a career high world ranking in the mid forties when the rankings are updated later today, lost 6-3 6-4 to Swede Sofia Arvidsson yesterday in just her second WTA tour final.
