Bombshell Update: Polish Media Don't Know Is Katowice Tournament Cancelled Or Not...


Lack of Radwanska was the reason why sponsors disappeared...

LOVELY THANKS FROM POLISH FANS TO WITCHES INCLUDED ON PHOTOS <3

Luckily lack of tournament didn't touched Queen Aggie as she launches soon her new website http://www.agaradwanska.com/

To Jimmie48's Question: Looks like it will be an empty slot, only Barcelona Open will be that week


UPDATE: ONE SITE WROTE THAT ORGANISERS OF THE TOURNAMENT TOLD THAT ALL IS A GOOD WAY TO ORGANISE A PERFECT TOURNAMENT AND THEY DON'T KNOW ABOUT PAP (POLISH PRESS AGENCY) REVELATIONS... MEANWHILE, NEXT SITE "ONET.PL" WROTE THAT "IT HAD TO BE A WTA'S MIRACLE TOURNAMENT, BUT IT IS CANCELLED" O.O

It was in the latest update (Dec 23rd) so if this is true, it is indeed a bombshell.

All sponsors disappeared after it was sure that Aggie won't participate, also TVP (Telewizja Polska-Polish TV) didn't wanted to make coverage from tournament without Radwanska as she is one of the hottest chicks now on the tour...

Re: BOMBSHELL: 5th Slam Katowice CANCELLED DUE TO LACK OF A.RADWANSKA

This is the issue with starting tournaments on the basis of one hometown player.

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Re: BOMBSHELL: 5th Slam Katowice CANCELLED- Sponsors disappeared due to lack of Radwa

Dying at the title of this thread..

What a mess. If the only reason they were holding this event in Katowice was on the basis that Radwanska would play, shouldn't they have consulted her and made sure she was going to play before choosing to move the tournament in Copenhagen to Katowice in the first place? Shame though, that stadium looked great.

And I don't get how this is Serena, Schiavone or anyone else's fault. It's Aga's fault she signed up to play Auckland. It was obvious she wasn't going to turn away that *allegedly* huge appearance fee she was going to get for playing Auckland. The rules are rules

really?! after all the fuss about this tournament?
I guess building up a tournament around one player only was never a good idea

Good riddance. Building up a tournament for one player is not a sound business decision.
