WTA Tournament of Brussels

Lots of questions:


When does the tournament start?

Does anyone here know who will play there? (seeds, wild cards...)

What level of tournament is this? (tier III?)

Are any of you going?

I would guess Justine will play, but I don't think Kim will.

I only know it's created to give starting (belgian) players a change to climb in the ranks

What surface is it anyway?

I must be Clay, since it's only a couple of weeks before Roland Garros.

I think Callens will play here (WC). I don't know if Justine will play. Does she still play Tier IV-tournaments.....?


Are there any Walloon junior or starting players

It is carpet/indoors!

It is Tier II!


Inspiration is for amateurs

That's ANtwerp Alex...Brussels is Tier IV and played on clay (it used to be the Sanex Trophy held in Knokke-Heist and won by Iroda last year)

Emilie Bacquet will probably receive a WC.

The tournament called The French Community Championships! What a bad tournament name!

Bram, the tournament is the week after Wimbledon.

And no Justine will not play here cause there's Fed Cup the week after, so she will be preparing with the Belgian team.

Oh I forgot, that's indeed the most stupid name I've heard for a Tennis tournament

pff, If Justine is not coming I bet they will have trouble to pay all the bills! It will be one of those tournaments with only 50 people watching the final!

Auch what a name. Typical Belgian I guess

How did they come up with this
