For gods sake they had them before they became even moderately wealthy They also have easily good enough facilities. They didn't even have a tournament at all when Margit was around 150 and Kaia + Maret were top 100 (Kaia was around 30 I think)
Liechtenstein the richest country in the world has 0 events

They used to have events though, and when Kathinka gets better I am sure they will get a 25K

Name another beside Kathinka that could play at the same level tournament as her
And it says something that she is the flagbearer
And it is also about facilities and tennis being valued as a sport

There are no Estonian players for a 25k (except Kontaveit). Kanepi is above that level and others are not good enough (yet). So it was decided that it´s better to have 2 X 10k.

Old authorities always claimed that it´s cheaper to give financial support to players (since there were so few of them), so they can play abroad, compared to organizing tournaments. Or maybe they were simply lazy and incompetent, like the critics claimed

I think that they can have a 25K
In a while Eva will be ready and Anett is with Kaia maybe doing a Finland
If Anett Schutting ever comes back that will help
They can also do smart trading like they did for Anett to get other WCs
I have never gotten why they haven't made the Nordecon Open and Saaremaa Open Combined events
3 10Ks and a 15 would be nice, or even 2 10Ks, a 15K and a 25K

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Re: 2012 ITF Calendar

There used to be a women´s 25k tournament in Vaduz. And nowadays there is a men´s future, which is organized by the Swiss federation, I believe.
