Buy a tournament! - maybe a joke???

Today I got this via email - I have no clue if it's true. A good friend sent me this and asked if I know about it.
I'm from Germany and never heard of this, maybe a joke or maybe the latest news?????

For Sale: Tier I Tournament

By Richard Pagliaro

If you've always wanted to play professional tennis, but lack the game to qualify for a main draw now you have an alternative: buy a tournament.

Whil "For Sale" signs aren't hanging up in Berlin it is reported that the German Tennis Federation (DTB) is experiencing such financial hardship, that its Eurocard Ladies German Open is on sale for $3 million.

The Tier I tournament is staged on red clay in Berlin. Justine Henin dispatched Serena Williams 6-2, 1-6, 7-6 (7-5) to capture the 2001 German Open title.
