If your ignorance is originating from the UK, then yes.

Re: Plovdiv will host 2014 WTA Tournament of champions

Plovdiv is such a cute city. I have been there twice and always enjoyed it. The old town is beautiful and there is a lot of green space. Food is also great I will go for sure.
Only wish for this tournament is that it would be BEFORE YEC. Makes no sense it coming after.

I am sure I can list at least 3 towns per country in Europe, so your ignorance towards one of the biggest towns in the Balkans, which is not a capital, is more like an insult to your own knowledge.

Pironkova.Kostova.Petrova.Kerber.Stosur.Jankovic.A &URadwanska.Kuznetsova.
Pavlyuchenkova.Li.Zvonareva. Zheng.Date-Krumm.Kvitova.Muguruza.

Vesnina.Niculescu.Falconi.Voskoboeva.Paszek.Shvedo va.Voegele
TennisTipping.Singles(#16|06.08.2012) ITF Fukuoka, Roland Garros|RU ITF Cali
TennisTipping.Doubles(#82|09.04.2012) ITF Casablanca (w/diego36arg), ITF Cagnes-Sur-Mer (w/Frederik), 2010 Osaka (w/CapriatiRules)

Oh, come on now. Someone who is not from this region or is not an avid traveler, how would he/she know about Plovdiv?

I've been there actually. It's a very nice city- for Bulgarian standards

Even I've heard of Plovdiv.

Mostly because of the posters on TF, I have to admit.

But that's part of what I like about this place. You do actually learn things here and there.

Re: Plovdiv will host 2014 WTA Tournament of champions

Is there an actual official source?

Haven't seen one here and haven't heard of this anywhere else.

*The link of this thread was in another current 2013 thread about the TOC*

If it's true, then looking forward to next year's edition in Plovdiv.

Also in Bulgaria. The second largest city behind its capital, Sofia.

Tsveti Pironkova's hometown.
