Tough Charleston draw for Erakovic

12:46 pm on 2 April 2013

A tough second round match awaits New Zealand tennis number one Marina Erakovic, assuming she can negotiate the first round of the latest WTA tournament in Charleston in South Carolina.

Erakovic, who's ranked 65th in the world, will play Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova, who's ranked ten places below her, in the opening round of the claycourt tournament.

The pair have played each other twice before, with both matches in 2011 and one win apiece.

The winner will play former US Open champion and world number nine Australian Samantha Stosur.
