Indian Wells?
I get it is manitory (so therefore) to cater for players 120 + they should have them....in fact, most of March (otehr thjan March 30) is really light on for >$50K events

Coz ITF don;t run their schedule off the WTA - they are 2 separate organisations, and it depends when tourneys apply to be held I guess.

Yes, you would think that - but they (WTA & ITF) obviously don't care to sit down and talk about balancing the calendar - so you'll end up with weeks that have like 3xWTA tourneys plus a $100k+H, plus a $100k, plus a $50k and like 3x$25k's too - not to mention about 5x$10k's just for fun.

Re: Why no >$50K Challengers the week of..

There's supposed to be a 50k in Patras, Greece, but I guess it hasn't been added to the calendar yet

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
