Monte Carlos and Hamburg both have ATP statdiums to be used for WTA's.
So if Berlin is downgraded, which city do you like see host a T1 on red clay the most?

I don't know, but actually I think there won't be another Tier I Clay Court event (even if Berlin is downgraded), because of Rome which is just a week later and becuase of Doha becoming Tier I.

But both German and Spanish tennis association seems to run out of money for tournaments.

Monte Carlo is in Monaco, not Spain...

Thanks. Spain definitely should get a clay T1 then, so Barcelona will be perfect.

it's really weird that Spain has never had a really big women's event, considering the success of ASV and Conchita. Madrid and Barcelona both play host to ATP tennis, but WTA was previously confined to a Tier III (Barcelona and more recently Madrid). Even when it was Madrid, it was played the week prior to Roland Garros.

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.

Spain won't get such a big tourney mainly because all in Spanish Federation are stupid and unable of doing anything right
