Re: Romania to finally host a WTA event in 2014?

It would be awesome, but I'll believe it when I see it on the WTA website. ProSport has gotten plenty of things wrong in the past.

This might be the case but remember that at this time last year the tournament in Barcelona was also still standing on this provisional calendar and 2 months before it should have held the organizers were withdrawing from the WTA tour which led to the event having been held in Nuremberg instead.

I want to defend the Romanian sports media at this point by saying that I don't think these rumours are completely out of the blue. The event in Budapest is close to being shut down since Szavay has lost a top ranking spot. To be more precise, it's only a matter of time until this event will disappear from the calendar. In this case I can imagine a possible event in Bucharest already being planned as immediate back-up should Budapest already pull out in the course of the next months.

It would certainly be the perfect replacement thinking in geographic terms and the number of visitors would surmount the one in Budapest easily.

Re: Romania to finally host a WTA event in 2014?

Today, the WTA Calendar has been Updated and Bucharest Open replaced Budapest Grand Prix (OFFICIAL) for the 7-13 July week.

http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...endar_2014.pdf


So Romania will finally host its 1st WTA tournament ever.


Hope it will last more than 1 year, as in 2015 there won't be any elections (the main financing coming from the Government)

Great news.

Some early candidates for wildcards?

Begu and Dulgheru are a lock if they won't get in directly. Mitu might snatch the third one.

I was actually thinking of going to Poitiers 100k this year to see the Queen in action. But players playing in front of their homecrowd is something different
