Luxemburg...was it really worthy the upgrade?
I can immagine how big the effort has been to promote the tournament from $170K to $585K
But looking at the 4 first seeds (Clijsters, Petrova, Schnyder & Dechy) makes me wonder how happy the organisers will be now as this kind of upgrade is meant to attract big names as players outside the top 20 would compete here anyway. And knowing that Kim would have played it even as a Tier III same as the 90% of the field means that the huge upgrade has been made to make Petrova play here. Not a huge boost for the tournament IMO...
But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
