Re: WTA event in Romania??

BCR Bank stopped sponsoring the men's event (starting this year BRD Bank will be the new sponsor), and will focus only on women tennis. This mean we might see a Premier tournament next year (or in the near future) in Romania...

The 100k+H tournament will be played at Herastrau Park Tennis Acadamy were a 2k temporary arena will be erected, but the WTA event could be played at BNR Arena. Halep, Begu, Olaru and E. Bogdan already announced their participation. website -> http://www.bcropen.ro/ro/

Re: WTA event in Romania??

Gojnea also confirmed her participation!
Sorana is likely to do so according to Meelis in her thread!
Also Dokic who is defending her title there will probably show up!
The organizers reckon with 5-6 Top 100 players
The wild cards will go exclusively to Romanian players, Olaru will receive one of the 4 main draw wildcards.

List is out. Zakopalova and Larsson are top foreign players. No Dokic though.

Re: WTA event in Romania??

Hi,

I want to go see the matches of this tournament, it will be very interesting with lots of Romanian players participating here. I see on the official website that Halep, Begu, Cirstea, Gojnea, Cadantu and Ungur are already in the MD and Olaru, E. Bogdan, Enache, Dabija, Laura Andrei in the Qualies.

I noticed on the official website that the organizers will also give 4 MDWCs and 6 Qualy WCs, all to Romanians (as they state). Do you have any idea when the WCs will be announced and what players should get them ???

Re: WTA event in Romania??

I don't know and as far as I'm concerned the organizers haven't announced them yet, but I'm 1000% sure that Olaru will receive a main draw wildcard, though it would be better for her to play qualis...

If they only award wildcards to Romanian players, it would make sense to give them to the 3 following highest ranked Romanian players Bogdan, Enache and Dabija, but we will see...

I'm already excited about the event!

Re: WTA event in Romania??

Olaru will certainely receive a MDWC... and I agree with you, it would be normal that the rest 3 WCs to be awarded to the highest ranked players who couldn't make it to the WC.

What about the Qualies WCs? Is there any chance that some talented Romanian young players to get the 6 spots? If not, who would get them ???

Re: WTA event in Romania??

Olaru will probably get in MD without a WC

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Bogdan will be in directly, once the special exempt places are cleared.
