2009 Kremlin Cup dates.

Why on earth have they scheduled a Premier tournament right before the WTA Championships?
Russian players will most likely commit to this tournament, which means if they qualify Zvonareva, Dementieva, Kuznetsova and Safina would like to play there. What's the point if they have to be in Doha not only the next day, but back on outdoor courts? I know that the Roadmap is messed up as it is, but this is a pretty big mistake.

What're your thoughts?

Re: 2009 Kremlin Cup dates.

My thought is that the WTA is treating the biggest force on women's tennis very bad

This tournament should be a Premier 5 at least

Re: 2009 Kremlin Cup dates.

I don't think it should be upgraded. Just because russia has a lot of players in the top hundred. The off season had to be longer, so this is just something that had to happened. or you can move moscow into february?

Re: 2009 Kremlin Cup dates.

IMO Dubai should go to this time and Moscow, Linz, and Luxembourg should be after Paris.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

I think they should replace Beijing with Moscow and put Paris where Moscow is now. They have destroyed European indoors season, leaving some not interesting parts of season alone.

Re: 2009 Kremlin Cup dates.

maybe beijing is offering more money and better facilities than Moscow?
It should be
February Paris- Moscow- Linz
And downgrade Dubai and place before Australian Open.

Russia deserves a great event, like IW or Miami.

Re: 2009 Kremlin Cup dates.

That part of the calendar is a total mess...as well as Moscow, over on the ITF events...$100k Ortsei and $100k Poitiers is also the same week. Why on earth ITF put two $100k tournaments the same week as Moscow is beyond me too (Last year they were a week after eachother)

Re: 2009 Kremlin Cup dates.

the WTA needs to decide on a time for an indoor season, either feb or oct. then have paris/luxembourg followed by moscow then linz as a 3 week run of indoor tournaments. it would probably be best in feb and dubai moving to 2 weeks before the YEC and have it sort of labeled as the 'last big chance to gain big points before YEC'

Re: 2009 Kremlin Cup dates.

I read somewhere that Safina and Kuznetsova are not going to play this year

Is this true ?

Re: 2009 Kremlin Cup dates.

last week before YEC champs was always gonna be
Moscow should be one week earlier
only top 10 player entered so far is Jankovic

its probably cos if you withdraw from here you would get a ZERO Pointer for 52 weeks

FULL list out on 2nd week of USO.


players committed so far

Jankovic, Pennetta, Vesnina, Schiavone, Kleybanova

as it stands 24th and last direct in would be Goerges

Good luck in 2016 to my favs*Kuznetsova*Sharapova*Kleybanova*Vesnina*Shvedova*Kulichkova*Kasatkina*
Pavlyuchenkova*Makarova*Diatchenko*Pivovarova*Gasparyan*Leykina*Zhuk*Potapova*Pervushina*AZARENKA *Govortsova
