Liezel Huber, South Africa’s most accomplished current tennis player on the WTA Tour, will be taking up USA citizenship shortly, according to a compelling article for Johannesburg’s The Star newspaper, written by seasoned journalist Kevin McCallum.
Liezel won the Australian Open women’s doubles title with her Zimbabwean partner, Cara Black, in Melbourne last week, after defeating Chinese Taipei’s Yung-Jan Chan and Chia-Jung Chuang in three sets.
Despite several disappointments locally, Huber’s heart is still in SA, even though she will permanently move to Houston, Texas, according to the piece ‘No Time to Pause for Liezel’s Cause’.
Liezel intends to continue to do good in South Africa, starting with donations from her charity ‘Liezel’s Cause’ for a run-down school in Durban. The charity has also assisted victims in the Hurricane Katrina from New Orleans, Louisiana.
