Can WTA do itself a favour and replace Warsaw for Bastad?



Swedish singer Erik Saade entertained the crowd during the tournament's opening ceremony.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

But the crowd is so small and on such beautifully sunny days in Bastad, too.

Hell, no!
Replace Warsaw with Sopot which is much more of a tennis town and holiday resort. Even much more crowds guaranted than in Bastad. However, the centre court in Warsaw is much bigger than in Bastad so there were as many people as in Bastad on the stand even though the impression was different. Another argument - it's not guaranted that so many people would come to Bastad in May as the town is a holiday destination and most of people are there on their vacation - not for tennis I think. They wouldn't come to Bastad in May just for a tennis tournament.

Replace Warsaw just because of an unknown local singer?

The attendance seems miles better than those certain so-called Premier/Premier Mandatory events.
