WTA-tournament in Hasselt!

It's confirmed

Groen licht voor WTA Hasselt 31-03-2004

De WTA Tour heeft octagon cis de toestemming gegeven om een nieuw Tier III-tornooi te organiseren in ons land. Dat zal op 27 september in Hasselt van start gaan.

De steile opgang van het tennis in ons land en de populariteit van de Proximus Diamond Games gaven octagon cis de ruimte om nog een tweede tornooi te organiseren. Het nieuwe Tier III-tornooi, gedoteerd met 170.000 dollar, zal voor het eerst georganiseerd worden in Hasselt en start op maandag 27 september.

De nieuwe hal die gebouwd wordt bij de Grenslandhallen in Hasselt, zal plaats bieden aan 12.000 toeschouwers. Daarnaast komt er nog een kleinere hal, waar het tweede terrein wordt opgebouwd, met plaats voor 1500 toeschouwers.

Kim Clijsters heeft haar deelname aan het tornooi inmiddels al bevestigd. Het is de bedoeling dat ze ook de volgende edities nauw bij het tornooi betrokken blijft. De officiŰle naam van het tornooi wordt eind april bekendgemaakt. De ticketverkoop start in de loop van de maand mei.

I'm gonna go

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

lol (I'd join though ).

Anyway, why Hasselt? I agree with Come-on-Kim, it's way too far for most Belgians...

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Because Hasselt is "Kim's backyard" as they put it on VRT Teletext.
So the 2nd WC will most definitely go to Elke.

I love Kim, but I hate when they do nearly all the events in her backyard (Fed Cup, love match, Hasselt tournament,...)

They could have done it in Brussels for exemple! It's in the middle of the country! They said it was possible for them to do it in Vorst Nationaal! And why not at Heysel?

The only good thing is that the 27th September is the French Community day So that means day off at university So I'll go the monday at least

Nice Again 1 point for our Belgian Girls in qualifying

Anyway, I don't give a sh*t where the event takes place...If you like tennis, you just go to there I went 3 times to Knokke, 1 time to Koksijde....just figure out the distance from my place

C'mon Belgians

Well I agree that Hasselt isn't the best choice (but it's a lot better than Bree => we got a railway station over here ). I know that the people from Octagon where 'complaining' when they had to go to Charleroi because it's to far ... so maybe another reason why Hasselt will be the place to be?

It's kind of obivious

Why were they complaining about Charleroi
I know that Justine presented the boss of Spiroudome ( was a partner of Stavaux agency) to Verbeeck, thanks to that Octagon had a place for the Diamond night in 2002 and the FedCup QF 2003 there! SO ........

Be afraid she's coming back !!!
