TIER III tournament in Chile

At Viña del Mar the same week of Antwerp . At least that says the official site http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3...urCalendar.pdf

It must be a joke cuz in Chile we don´t know anything about this respect

Does anyone know about it ?

Re: TIER III tournament in Chile

I thought 2007 was the last year that the tournament in Antwerp was going to be held.

Exactly my thoughts. But oh well, I guess it'll still be crowded with argentinian girls

I wonder how much this will last. Hopefully the chilean crowd will show some as much interest as they do in the men's tournament.

Re: TIER III tournament in Chile

I think Chile should have men's tournament since they have top male player, but not top female player.

Re: TIER III tournament in Chile

A great idea. Three weeks of early red clay for the lower ranked girls. And I'm glad they got rid of the free week.

And I can't believe they are leaving Fes alone before Berlin. A new city, I would have thought, should be eager to purchase the Tier II rights from Warsaw. I'm actually quite stunned no one has yet.

Re: TIER III tournament in Chile

I still can't believe Doha is going to host a Tier I AND the Tour Championships. Not only that, the Tour Chps. are going to be held outdoors at the end of the indoor season. The WTA may be getting a ton of money, but it doesn't make sense, and I don't think it's good for tennis.

Oh, and as for there being no replacement for Warsaw, it's probably because both the Stuttgart and Madrid events are going to be moved into the clay court season in a couple of years.

Re: TIER III tournament in Chile

What is Chile's highest ranked female player?

Then again, it's not like the UAE or Qatar has top female players.

Re: TIER III tournament in Chile

Good ...

Should be more WTA tournaments in South America, they retain a real passion for the game down there.
