I've never seen such hustle in a professional sport .

The WTA doesn't need more tournaments in second-tier Chinese cities.
Most Europeans won't stick around anyways and will go straight back to Europe to play Linz and Luxembourg.

A tired, diluted field isn't your best best to promote the sport in Asia.

If they get rid of Linz, I will be devastated. Definitely one of my favourite tournaments.

i might sound like a nostalgia tard but i really liked the oldschool indoor swing at the end of the season

i am excited about new countries getting tournaments - or at least have them back (brazil used to host tournaments for women in the past for instance) but i wish old spots were not taken away

btw i think they're just going to fuck up kasia piter by removing these indoor tournaments

New Nottingham international - Cool!

By the way, I'm fairly new to all this. When you use the acronym MM for an International level tourney, what does MM stand for?
She'll keep Quebec. It's after the US Open...and it's close to NYC. She's Canadian (stacey). And Quebec has been voted player's favourite international event for like 10 years.

There's also a Rio de Janeiro event the same week as Dubai though I guess they're placing a little bit less emphasis on P5s.

At least KLampur and Monterrey are back before IW-Miami in 2015. That is good. Grass season is only thing that they are doing better, mostly, the other things they are doing, especialy fall season, are terrible.
And also, AO a week later is good with no Paris right after it. Bettrer 3 Premier weeks, than GS+2 Premiers before and 1 right after! Only one thing i hate there, Riod during Dubai week.

They shoud also make Dubai Doha switch every year, like Toronto Montreal

Appears to be only on the P5s that were not Tier I's before... maybe has to do with the licenses.

Dubai to have Rio
Cincinnati has Suzhou 125k
Wuhan to have Tashkent

Roma and Montreal/Toronto currently not touched.

I hope they change the Inter +P5 week double. That is veeery bad.

Of tipic:
I think it is ok that Dubai is againn P5. Doha was t1 2008, 2012, 2013, Dubai 2009, 2010., 2011. Also, nice finals, by names at least:
08 Sharapova def Zvo
09 Venus def Razano
10 Venus def Vika
11 Woz def Kuzzy
12 Vika def Sam
13 Vika def Serena

Tianjin is not a 2nd-tier Chinese city

anyway they have superb facilities ... I played there
