Ironically, this decision must've been made by a div.

Re: Plovdiv will host 2014 WTA Tournament of champions

What is strange
We sighed a contract for 3 years, first 2 will be in Sofia and the last one in Plovdiv.

Next step is getting an ATP event

Finals Win/Lost
Singles : 0:1
Doubles : 4:14 (1:0 in 2016) : Won Indian Harbour (with Phil=)

Yes, she will unless she qualifies with an International title. I think that was the deal when they get the tournament - one of the WCs is for Pironkova unless she qualifies or can't play the event because of injury or something

That's really unfair. She better try to qualify next year for her own dignity.

Haters gonna hate: http://www.wtatennis.com/page/OffCou...973601,00.html

"We are thrilled by the reception the Qatar Airways Tournament of Champions received in Sofia," said Stacey Allaster, WTA Chairman & CEO. "I experienced first-hand the excitement and interest in the event along with a world class facility and operation. With the support of great sponsors, led by Qatar Airways, committed organization by the Bulgarian Tennis Federation, and the support of the country's Ministry of Sports and the City of Sofia, this tournament was a terrific success for the WTA and the sport of tennis." - Stacey Allaster.

"Arena Armeec is an impressive new facility and on the weekend it's been packed, so it was really exciting to play here," Petrova said. "It helped, I think, that Tsvetana was part of the tournament, which raised awareness and will help get people involved in tennis.Each player was given her own locker room and personalized car and driver - we've been treated so well!" - Nadia Petrova

"It has been a great week. It was fun having my mom and the rest of my family here as well - and my coach - and just everyone who organized the event. The level was so high." - Daniela Hantuchova

99.9% of the world's population never heard of Plovdiv and the existence of this tournament.
Terminate this event and just sign Qatar Airways as a WTA's sponsor.

So let's stick it all to New York, Paris and London and fire all players besides the Williams sisters and Sharapova.
I don't see anything wrong with the idea to promote tennis in Bulgaria and different venues in Bulgaria around the world by organizing such sporting events.

Pironkova.Kostova.Petrova.Kerber.Schnyder. Stosur.Jankovic.Kuznetsova.
Pavlyuchenkova.Niculescu.Radwanska.Date-Krumm.Kvitova.Vinci.Muguruza.
