I would say that BRazil deserves a GS because there are no GS in South America. ....Heck!!There are hardly any regular touney's in S. America. There isnt a GS in Asia either but they host quite a few big tournamets like the Toray Pan Pacific and the Japan Open,.

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

WHERE IS ISREAL.. I'M SURE A LOT OF PLAYERS WOULD GET PRACTICE GOOD RUNNING PRACTICE WHEN RUNNING FOR COVER.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

Definately Canada... and it would have to be hosted in Calgary!!!

Don't really have a good reason as to why... just because it'd be in my city and I could go see all the matches

I voted for Brazil, because Latin America has only 3 WTA tournaments during the season (Bahia, Bogota and Acapulco)

Also would be nice in Argentina

it depends...what is this fifth surface going to be?

hard
grass
clay
rebound ace

the four grand slams are all diff. surfaces (if you count rebound and hard as diff.) so where's this fifth one? carpet indoors? that'd be cool. then it really doesn't matter, but clay, definitely spain. but anything else doesn't really matter.

i like the israel idea! (though not the running for cover part....)

I am sure the organizers would be so happy to build 18 courts indoors, one of them with capacity for about 15,000 people, one for about 10,000 and a third for about 5,000.
