Re: breaking news: Anda Open (Tel-Aviv) Cancelled....

ha. i knew it.

i'm not going to see a wta event live in my homeland in the near future - it seemed to good to be true.
i'm going to finish up my army service, work my ass off and go see the clay season elsewhere.
Israeli sports is a joke.

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.

Ouch. That is so disappointing.
All this means is that players desperately trying to get to YEC will pack Quebec City. Should have a great field this year now.

Re: breaking news: Anda Open (Tel-Aviv) Cancelled....

Odd timing, not at all expected. For Israel, things are relatively quiet.

Edit: Oh, I see. It's a funding issue. They've upped the requirements, to half a million dollars + 220 dollars rewards, and we/the sponser can't afford that much.

This BLOWS.

Re: breaking news: Anda Open (Tel-Aviv) Cancelled....

The problem was that The WTA wanted new conditions for the tournament from 2010 (from 145,000$ to 220,000$ for example) and Mr. Zimond refused to their demands. It is difficult to find new sponsors, so the desicion for now is to cancell the tournament unless the WTA tour will change their mind or that new sponsor will be able to find the money for long term...
