3 of Rena, Fran, Sam, Caro against exception for Aga to play her home WTA in Katowice

Interview with Aga's coach Tomasz Wiktorowski about Katowice tournament:

According to the rules the tennis player from top10 can play only one International tournament at the first half of the season. Agnieszka has very early chosen for herself Auckland. Can you still do something about it?

We wanted to try. The chances are not high now. Agnieszka and Lagarder Management applied to WTA for exception and the opportunity for her to play the 2nd International tournament in first half of 2013.

Did WTA agree?

We haven't got the official reply yet. Unofficially we got to know that this issue was transferred to Player Council which said "no".

Do you know who voted?

The result of voting was 1:3. In the council there is Sam Stosur, Serena Williams, Francesca Schiavone and Caroline Wozniacki. We can only suspect who supported us.

Karolina.

This is what you said...
Other tennis stars didn't allow Aga for a start.
We still wait for the official WTA announcement. But it's difficult to think that something can change.

Anyway it would be only the beginning of the way to get Aga to Katowice.

You should remember that the presence of Wozniacki at the tournament, the presence of the 2nd star from top10 would complicate the situation.

The rise of prize money is required.

Yeah and it's difficult to predict that additional money would be found. In Brisbane there will be additional stars and additional prize money which will rise to one million of american dollars.

In Shenzen the prize money has risen to 500k USD.

Yeah, as you can see about which money we teld. You should be prepared for that. Only than you can start the negotiations with potential players. This tournament is an unusual event for Poland. But I remember that it's a long road for Aga's participation in it.

I bet Wozniacka said no.

Sam was probably the one who DGAFF. Serena just wanted to be a bitch. Fran and Woz probably hoping to countervulture.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Well don't commit to Auckland if you want to play Katowice.

I suppose if Aga wants to play, they'll force Caroline out. So maybe she voted no?

Of course Karolina said no. Piotr is behind this tournament, he decided they'll move the tournament from Copenhagen to Poland, and he never wanted Radwanska to play anyway.

The company which organizes the tournament is the same which produced Wozniacki's "Oxygen" song.

No one forced her to commit that early.

I'm surprised Serena gives a damn about this.
