What is/was your favorite German tournament?

Germany has/had a lot of tournaments. I think you still have 3 currently? What is, or was, your favorite?

i like Leipzig too
it is easy to catch the players off-court

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

I only attended Leipzig and Hamburg so far, but I really liked Leipzig.

Luxembourg was quite good, too ( Luxembourg is almost Germany )

i only enjoyed the wta tournament in hamburg and the masters in 2001 in munich so far - and i really like hamburg. i visited it five times and it always was that great!
but the best experiences i ever made on a tourny were in halle/westfalen (atp). i hope that gerry weber will create a wta-tourny there one day...

my other signature is funny.

Berlin!

"We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls"

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

They way this is going, I'm surprised no one has brought up Auckland yet.

Isn't the Hamburg stadium by far the best in Germany, at least as far as attendance goes? I dropped by the men's Masters tournament last year and seem to remember that the Center Court held something like 13,000. (Court 1 was decent as well, but the other outside courts weren't much to write home about). It's pretty strange that the women no longer have a tournament there.

Maybe a Challenger would be in place? And then a Tier V the year after? Maybe sneak it in to the late clay season instead of prior to Berlin when the weather isn't too great.
