Re: 2008 WTA Calendar

I don't understand why Stuttgart will be a clay court tournament in 2009. And why they will put the clay into the arena over the hardcourt

Acura Classic
I am going to miss being able to attend a WTA event every summer. It was better than the rest of the US Open Series(except for US Open) too!

Players will earn pts for the Olympics as if it were a tier II? Cool.

Re: 2008 WTA Calendar (Last Year For Many Tournaments)

Source please. Because the USTA one still had the event in Rabat and not Fes. Thus, until its released by the WTA, it's very likely to be incorrect.

Re: 2008 WTA Calendar (Last Year For Many Tournaments)

The Olympics should be treated like a GS. They should make the points either equivalent to a GS or between a Tier I and a GS.

No more tournaments in Poland? First they got rid of Sopot, now Warsaw, this sucks!

Why Madrid? What is so special about Madrid? If it was so special, why did they get rid of the Tier III tournament that was there?

Larry Scott, I hope you get fired.

Gold Coast is only in "last year" next year because it's moving to brisbane in 09.

I doubt the Estoril WTA TIV will be held. The ATP tournament was downgraded and moved to the Valencia/Houston week, effective 2008. So the TIV will either be held that week or not at all.

Re: 2008 WTA Calendar (Last Year For Many Tournaments)

Why are all these tournaments ending? Financial reasons? Or is the tour trying to trim down the schedule?

Any changes to the challengers?
