There's deal that they alternate P5 status between themselves. Two year in Dubai, two year in Doha, two year in Dubai etc. Until they manage to get both upgraded.

That's out of WTA's control though

I thought they alternate every three years?

How come Wuhan got rid of Tokyo and not them

I like the 3 week grass tournament period, really looking forward to it.

which can't become WTA 125 as then Safarova (and other top Czechs) would not be allowed to play.

Right. Three years.

Well, they are paying P5 money even when it's simply Premier 700, so WTA might think that's not urgent to upgrade them

The comparison was made between Wuhan and Doha/Dubai, not Tokyo.

Too many desperate attempts to inflate Chinese players rankings.

It isn't actually as bad I was expecting though given what they have to work with they've actually done quite a good job.

Ra'annana is actually OK, all the rich kids play there now.

remember watching Peer there as a teenager, as well as Obziler and Glushko (the rest of the israelis aren't worth mentioning, and i missed a chance to see smashnova *there*)

but Ra'anana is a suburban nowhere and there isn't anything to do there, especially after 8 PM.
TLV is probably one of the top10 cities in the world for having fun, and it' only a bus away.

anyway, it's always nice to meet up fellow WTAWORLDers... i mean tennisforum..

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Yes but when you put them in weeks which are not viable for lower ranked players to play it's obvious who you are trying to benefit.

The 2015 calendar doesn't allow for any changes to the Year End Championships format. Hasn't Stacey said the Year End Championships will be 8 days long from 2015, which doesn't fit into this calendar.
