Horakova, Vajda Bolster Already Formidable Fenerbahce


Turkish champions Fenerbahce have made two more signings to strengthen their title challenge in the EuroLeague Women.

Having already added Diana Taurasi, Ivana Matovic and Şaziye İvegin, as well as new coach Laszlo Ratgeber, Fener have agreed to contracts with Czech international playmaker Hana Horakova and Hungary forward Anna Vajda.

Horakova, a long-time player at Frisco Sika Brno, won the EuroLeague crown in 2006 and is coming off a season in which she averaged 12 points, three assists and 4.5 rebounds per game.

The 30-year-old will join the Turkish club after playing for her country at the FIBA World Championship for Women in the Czech Republic.

Vajda led MiZo Pecs in scoring at 14.8 points per contest in 2009-10.

The 25-year-old has decided to rest this summer instead of playing for Hungary in their qualifying campaign for next year's EuroBasket Women in Poland.
