If you could win a WTA title (not GS or Tier Is) which title would it be?

Imagine yourself on the WTA tour and you are a Top20 player.

Which WTA title (not a grand-slam or a Tier I) would you want to win the most?

I would want to win is Stuttgart - the reason is its because not only do you win a Porsche as well, you are also playing a top top field of tennis players too. Even the qualifying for this Tier 2 has the top seed ranked in the 20s.

Stuttgart's top seed in qualifying was ranked 55.

Amelia Island. I love the green clay events on the tour and if I can't have Hilton Head, I'll take Amelia.

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)

Does this exclude YEC as well? I think Olympics is also considered a super Tier I so I'll assume that's out too.

Dubai has a huge purse for a Tier II, so I guess that's as good a choice as any.

Nice thread, I would choose Dubai or Doha, as I would receive an obscene amount of money and I would also emulate Justine's performances. But first I would need to undergo a sex change operation, and I'm not so comfortable with that

Jelena Jankovic A little bird told me that if you get your penis and testicles removed, it really improves your movement.

Eastbourne because it's at home and it might not be around for long By the way, why aren't there any grass tier Is?
