Definitely Stanford. Brie beating Diamond there is one of the reasons.

Stay away.

Re: What is your favorite Premier Tournament (Tier 2)?

I like Stuttgart. The indoor clay makes it a bit different which is interesting IMO.

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / Rezaď
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / Görges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

Sydney It always has around 7-8 of the TOP 10 playing. Always has really tough draws.

Re: What is your favorite Premier Tournament (Tier 2)?

I went to Stuttgart this year, and I must confess I loved it! ( Dementieva (she laughed at me because nobody wanted to hold my camera so as I could take a photo with her ^^ , she was so cool)

Generally speaking I think Stuttgart is the best, I love the pre-match interwiews, it's pretty fun!
(I like Paris too )
