Re: Why is 56-draw Birmingham an International and 32-draw Eastbourne a Premier?
It's not tradition - at Eastbourne I remember it being a 64 player draw in the late 70's/early 80's and you'd have five matches on all courts on the first Monday (inc the likes of Navratilova, Evert, etc playing on the first day) - many days play would be going on till after 8pm.
