Talking New WTA Italian Tournament

Just noticed this browsing the WTA Calender :

http://www.wtatour.com/tournaments/profiles/modena.asp

A tier IV event, in Italy (Modena) on clay, filling up the vacant space on the 11th of July.

in general - i love all the italian players.
i think it's cuz they all have a simular game that i enjoy, based on the great silvia!
(but i don't like franny....)

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

I think there sohuld be more clay court tournaments. Because there are only like 5 of them, except RG, who are good to play for the tops (Tier I & II). The rest are only tier III or IV.

Go Brazilian girls!

I don't think Lena is that bad on grass. If she had a better serve she would be just as good on grass as on hard courts.
