I agree. I don't think the WTA's let's-go-with-the-boys mentality is the right idea. It's good for now, but what if the ATP decides to go on their own and leave the women to dry? The WTA abandoned a lot of great women's only events to go along with the men: Amelia Island, Boca Raton/Delray Beach, Houston, Berlin, Zurich, Chicago...

I do not know if Katowice is a clay or hard court tournament (or would it even exist in 2013), I am just treating it as a filler.

But, according to your definition, Paris is a lone tournament just like Memphis, except it's a bit closer to Dubai/Doha, so placing it before requires traveling from AO -> Europe -> Middle East, moving it after probably isn't so bad. Yes, Charleston had 56 draws w/less Qs before, so WTA needs to put another tournament in there to kill it even more? Not so sure about that.

I had my thought on the calendars but it's not do-able because there are so many tournaments that are not move-able. WTA's idea of trying to place tournaments all together with the men's to enjoy the benefits from the Men's pretty much limited it's choices. I am not a fond of it and tournaments like Cincinnati being a P5 is just a joke to me. There should be more of tournaments like Stuttgart.
Yes, Paris is lone too, but since majority of the players are europeans and they will travel back to Europe after australian season anyway, its not that big deal. But Bogota, Florianopolis, Memphis, etc are not such destionations as Paris.

And WTA shouldnt care where are mens tournaments. There are succesful WTA only events, those should be examples. Thats why I dont care Memphis and Acapulco has ATP tournaments too. (of course for organizers its better a 1 week tournament with both ATP & WTA than two separated weeks.)

Yes, it is. WTA visitator Fabrice Choquet was in the city on Thursday and was delighted at the venue. So I guess next days there will be an official decision by WTA. There are negotiation to make it 500k event with Radwanska. Indoor clay is most probable.

The woman from the tournament office told: "Please, be patient". That's also a message for TFers.

Even if it's 500k Radwanska still can't play.

They need to upgrade it to Premier for Radwanska to play

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?

and then she will not play because no money left to pay her enough appearance fee

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

The mens behind the tournament are Aga and Caro's dads, so they don't give them any app money...

The men behind the tournament are only the producers of Caroline's 2012 hit: "Oxygen".
