Re: Tournaments' last ever champions

Brussels and Knokke-Heist are not the same tournament:

Knokke-Heist (2001) - Tulyaganova
Brussels (2002) - Casanova

I remember Venus saying she'd love to go back in her USO 4th rd interview this year where she talked about how Polish people loved it, but I doubt she'll go cuz it's probably on clay, and played after the French..
