LINZ, Austria — Generali Ladies Linz No. 6 seed Yanina Wickmayer and No. 8 seed Sabine Lisicki took time out of their busy schedules on Monday to participate in a Kids’ Day Press Conference.
Our photographer Rick Gleijm was given an exclusive invite to capture all the excitement and giggles as school children of all ages asked their favorite players challenging and inspiring questions. Afterward, the ladies stayed to sign autographs and even posed with a life-size bumblebee!
Wickmayer will open her campaign on Tuesday against American qualifier Mallory Burdette who recently turned professional, while Lisicki will face wildcard Patricia Mayr-Achleitner on Wednesday.
