There are hardly any tournaments in China.

After what happened in Acapulco, you have to say Hasta la vista to Monterrey.

Here we go again! God please keep all tournaments including the YEC in Europe even if it's in recession and sponsors are reluctant to pay maintenant, just leave WTA to be broke, who cares

I would like it to stay in Istanbul. But if I have to choose I would say Kazan only because it's Europe.

I've just come back from Singapore and it was an amazing place!!! They would do an incredible job of hosting the YEC

They have great public transport, 100's of shopping malls, fantastic tourist attractions such as the Singapore Flyer (big wheel) Night Safari, Orchid Gardens etc.., plus glamourous hotels such as Raffles...the players and fans would have such a great time

So, my vote goes to Singapore

Been to Singapore Zoo? Orchard Road? Little India? Raffles Hotel? Even over the top Sentosa?

Singapore is my favourite spot in Asia and I have visited most of the continent.

Didn't been to Zoo but i doubt Zoo will impress me since i don't get them at all. Raffles Hotel is nice but you have to give more than that, you can find fancy Hotel with nice garden in most big cities, if it would have been in Gothic style i would move in there

Typical answer of anybody who has not been to that zoo which looks nothing like a zoo. It is located in a natural park with no fences but natural barriers. Absolutely stunning, always cited as the best zoo in the world for a reason. You have a feeling like you walking in the jungle rather than visiting a zoo. Highly recommended.

Singapore is more like Disneyland and you do not have a real "city" feeling. Singapore Zoo is a nice attraction for sure but this defines for me not a buzzling big city. Orchard Road is paved with the usual chains you can see in every other city, not to mention that prices for international chains like Gucci are far more expensive compared to Europe. Little India is interesting if you are going there on a Sunday afternoon to get the "Mumbai" feeling and do some shooping at Mohammed Center:-)) Otherwise not so much to see. Raffles Hotel is nice to see once, but going to the Long Bar and having those overpriced Singapore Slings with average quality, I don't know.....Last but not least Sentosa is for me the worst place here in Singapore, everything about it is artificial and I would not recommend to get into the sea as the water is quite dirty:-( A city like Hong Kong is much more interesting for me. As always it depends on the personal favors.
But all in all Singapore would do a great job in hosting the event, no doubt about that!
