Question Did the Maersk Air Ladies Cup (the Danish event) get pulled?

Aarhus? *checking Sanex WTA Tour website* You're right!


Inspiration is for amateurs

I recognized that weeks ago when the lists came out about the players

It seems that after this week, there is a FedCup week and then a week off before Helsinki which is pretty sad for those who tried to make points on clay such as Arantxa and skipped the US tour for that

I spoke to someone from Denmarks national tennis association at Wimbledon; they left me with the impression it was going ahead...

Chris:

What about the event in Sopot? Or is there a week between Sopot and Helsinki? I haven't looked at the WTA calendar in quite some time!

There is no event opposite the Acura Classic. The event that should have been there should have been Basel the PreCon Open. Basel has been pulled off of the calendar for ages now...the Aarhaus one seems to have been yanked in the past few weeks.

Sorry for confusing you all. My fault.

I still think it´s sad that Basel has been cancelled. Any reasons ? Patty and Iroda will drop immensly now.

It was planned to play
- Casablanca, Palermo, Brussels
- FedCup
- Basel
- Helsinki

here in Europe. Call me wrong but it was planned that girls like Coetzer or Sanchez get a chance to improve their rankings here playing clay for a couple of weeks avoiding too much rivalry on US hardcourts.

Now they cancelled Basel and the chain of events falls apart. If you rest one week after FedCup, why staying in Europe with Helsinki´s final just hours before the event in Canada on hardcourt begins.

Every player that takes the US Open seriously would avoid such stress.

About Aarhus, I will try to call and ask about it, today or Monday, I hope here still will be a tourny, even I now doubt it.

I would have liked to see this event still up, I love the lower tier events...you never know which champion could be the tour's newest star

Well there is Sopot....so players can play week after Wimby, then Fed Cup, then Sopot, then Helsinki. Three tournament is enough on the clay considering Vienna was played earlier this year.

Also, if I remember correctly, the tournament in Denmark was never on clay in the summer. It was always taking place indoors in the fall, and as far as I know it still is, but I haven't checked the calendar in a while.

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

The tournament in Denmark was new, we have never had any WTA tour tournament only a challenger tourny. I tried to call today, but noone in the office due to Davis Cup, so I will call again Monday. (Too hear why they seem to have cancelled this new event, even before it had started...)
