WTA Katowice is only 70 km from Czech border. Linz only 35 km. They are now like Czech Open, both on indoor hardcourts

Two different groups (one being Kvitova/Safarova/Berdych agency) tried to buy Brussel license in 2012, but in the end Brussel did find extra finances to stay in the calendar (for two more years).
