Well done Istanbul!

People doubted it was a good place to organize YEC, but it turned out to be the best since I can remember! The attendance was awesome, despite little history this sport has over in Turkey, they've supported girls amazingly and the competition was exciting too.
Thank you Istanbul! Cya in 2012!

Ana Ivanović.

Re: Well done Istanbul!

I agree. It was great to see WTA event organized like that.

Beijing, Tokyo, Doha, Dubai, Moscow, Sydney and other tournaments should hire someone of Istanbul tournament organisation to help them

Re: Well done Istanbul!

I totally agree. We all thought this Tournament would be crappy with no attendance, but they REALLY proved us wrong. I loved that Tournament, really, best YEC since a long time!! Doha was just terrible, that Tournament really should be cancelled instead of the indoor events.

Re: Well done Istanbul!

I hope if possible Beijing and other places can lower the entrance fee down to $3
