There are a lots of differences between WTA and ITF just only in the rules and regulations.

I checked and only three times in the year you can find three WTA tournament the same week. These one will allow players as high (low) as 250-300 to get in the qualies and for these players it is really important to be sure, they can get in the tournament before they buy their flight ticket.

Personnaly I like these "150's" and I'm sure in about 2 years there will be something like 12-15 in the calendar

I would say that they are more like Tier V event, who used to have 110k usd as a prize money.
In my opinion all 100k ITF events should be promoted, and the schedule would contain some more tournaments, because right now it's a really big challenge to win a title. Tennis calendar needs more variety, and for sure more tournaments. I admire all those players, cause I would be fed up with playing for 10 years in almost same cities.

Re: 2013 Calendar

I double checked and didn't see anything, I think we'll have to wait til fall when the itf and wta calendar are finalised to get some news about it, but if i'm not wrong they hope to have about 15 of these tournament until 2017

Re: 2013 Calendar

There are 3 China Open Championships, with something like 25 Chinese players, 5 Japanese and 2 form the rest of the world (probably Taipei or Korea), soooo interesting...

Anyway, it would suit better in a week after Osaka as there are two weeks between Osaka and Nanjing/Taipei Challengers (and nothing between in Asia).

If they do that those rotten flowers won't get enough points cause all the good players will be here. Not going to happen.

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?

Re: 2013 Calendar

If the Chinese players were good enough, they wouldn't need sub-ITF100k level tournaments (placed carefully when everyone else is in the USA) to ratchet up cheap points. if this is what developing markets means, let ITF do it....

Strycova ~ Robson ~ Watson ~ Gajdosova ~ Shvedova

Petkovic ~ Parmentier ~ Swan ~ Errani ~ Vekic ~ Pavlyuchenkova ~ Halep ~ Konta ~ Riske
