Scheepers Launches Official Website
Published September 25, 2011 12:00
Fresh off her very first WTA title in Guangzhou, Chanelle Scheepers has another first - her official website. Follow South Africa's No.1 player throughout the year on her newly launched site, www.chanellescheepers.com.
Scheepers played her first WTA main draw back in 2003 but success on the WTA has been trending towards more experienced players, and she is no exception - she broke into the Top 100 for the first time at the age of 26 last summer, and now, at the age of 27, she has her first title. By winning in Guangzhou she became the first South African to win a WTA title since former Top 3 player Amanda Coetzer won Acapulco eight years ago in 2003.
Scheepers' website has all the elements of a top quality official website - information about herself, her career and her team, photos, results, schedule and contact information, and a Twitter feed too. But what might separate this official player website from the rest is the personal touch, as a lot of the content comes right from her, aligning perfectly with her warm personality.
"I am excited about the future as I'm only beginning to find out what I'm capable of at this stage of my life," Scheepers said. "I am also very fortunate to have the support of Roger Anderson and Stanford Boster, who have inspired me and believed in me to reach my true potential."
