They moved Paris forward....
Now it is straight after the AO, instead of one week later.

You don't have to be a genius to see what's that going to do with the player's field....

Another European Indoor tournament ruined...

That extra MM in week one is gonna destroy Auckland's field. Especially if it's in an Asian country, as they will be able to pay large appearance fees.

I think that they should have Rio as a premier event, not a international event

new MM 1st week of season at the same time as Brisbane Premier / Auckland MM ... this may be Hong Kong finally getting a MM to replace the canceled Exho

Fed Cup 1R moved AFTER Paris / Pattaya MM (instead of before) so players playing Fed Cup cannot play Doha P5 Q

new MM in Rio De Janerio either same week as Bogota MM or same week as Acapulco MM / Kuala Lumpur MM of course it should be the 2nd option so there is a South America swing

Memphis MM canceled ... not a surprise given the poor field in 2012

Monterrey MM moved AFTER IW / Miami

new MM the same week of Estoril MM (in 2012 it was Budapest MM here) ... could this be the long awaited Belgrade MM

new Cairo MM the same week as Birmingham MM

and there is also a new version of the 2012 calendar but I don't know what the difference is from the last version

You forgot the Stanford move in to the Baku week.

Re: NEW SEWTA 2013 Calendar - Memphis Cancel, 4 New MM Including Cairo, Rio De Janeir

This shit will be edited just like the 2012 one was. I'm not analyzing anything yet. Egypt was canceled last minute last year and so was Belgrade. The WTA doesn't have the slightest idea what they are doing.

Re: NEW SEWTA 2013 Calendar - Memphis Cancel, 4 New MM Including Cairo, Rio De Janeir

really hope cairo doesn't happen again. it would mean birmingham's draw would be decreased to 32 players not 56, i go to brum so want as many players there as possible and as much tennis as possible.

Anna Chakvetadze Rules

Cairo? on Grass? That sounds weird. I don't think the tournament can happen given how unstable Egypt has been for the past 1-2 years

Interesting that they are trying to have a grass event in Egypt. I don't know how that's going to work. It seems the calender gets weirder and weirder every year.

Re: NEW SEWTA 2013 Calendar - Memphis Cancel, 4 New MM Including Cairo, Rio De Janeir

Minor tweaks/improvements to the calendar as usual. All these small tweaks of recent years keep steadily making the WTA calendar a bit more rational.

Shifting Fed Cup week 1/Paris GDF isn't an improvement though. My guess is that the WTA is trying to choke Paris GDF to death by depriving its draw of quality players and/or force the organizers to upgrade the event and buy a better place on the calendar. If the WTA is making a move against tournaments that stand alone in the calendar and lead to nothing, then they should do the same to Charleston.

Maybe there are some grasscourts left at a club used by the British Army back in the day. I know they have them in Pakistan, for instance.

Anyway, I suppose this will be an all-new venue at some brand new resort trying to promote itself internationally, and they can afford to set up whatever playing surface they wish. Biggest problem will be the heat, as we've discussed before.
