yippie! Berlin finally saved for next year as Tier I, then probably Tier II

I'm so happy that it was not cancelled! Just read it in German newspaper and Yahoo Germany...

Next year, it will be still a Tier I, the future after this is still unclear though...

Good good. Even though it probably won't get a bigger star-studded field as it has been in the past.

Great news. The German Open has way too much history just to disappear. I hope the players support it to the maximum.

I only heard of downgrading Berlin, I dont think they can cancel T1 just like that, T2 is another story.
I was wondering what is the last T1 to be cancelled? You have to downgrade a tournament before terminating it I believe. Since Leipzig is back too, maybe German tennis IS coming back to life....

That's great news !! This tournament has to much tradition to just fall by the wayside. Who knows with Sharapova making big waves, Kournikova coming back and Henin & Clijsters back to good health next years tournament could be the best attendant wise since the days of Graf - that should surely help it survival.

All we need now is a tournament is Spain and the Czech Republic, these countries have to much tradition to not have a tournament. Hopefully the WTA will have some news when the schedule is released.
