Could Serbia have a WTA event???

I was wondering does Serbia have a descent stadium or something like that that complies with WTA standards, so we could host a WTA event????
I know the country is still struggling economiclly but if Morrocco, Turkey and Croatia can have a WTA event then Serbia could too .

What do you think??

In light of the success and marketability of Serbia's three stars I think it's criminal that we don't. At least a challanger would suffice until some money starts coming in to the federation as the economy improves. There would be a full house from round one I am sure of that and it will also give some of the youngsters a chance to get some WTA points on the board via WCs. But as long as we have Zivojinovic as president then no good will come. I am convinced his incompetence is deliberate. The players seem to have noticed this too. The sooner he goes the better.

I read somewhere that Gemaks (http://www.gemaxtennisclub.com/) were planning to build a tennis stadioum (2-3000 seater). Wish I rememeber where i read it, though.

Gemax is quite good it has 1500 seats-they had for Davis Cup, it has both indoor and outdoor. Well we got a 25k last year and none of the girls actually did anything so...
We'll have to wait for a WTA tourney a while!

NO


Jankovic suffers from severe Chinese syndrome! Only God can help her!

it's pure stupidity that no one can organize an event (even an exhibition) featuring ana and the 2j's in bg.

Berićetno od početka
A. PALIĆ 11.02.2004, 17:33:49

START iz snova za plave tenisere. Malo ko je mogao da pretpostavi da će nai majstori sa reketom za samo mesec i po dana zablistati na turnirima irom sveta i tako najaviti preporod nekada super-popularnog sporta u naoj zemlji. Ono to smo prieljkivali godinama, Zimonjić, dve Jelene i mladi Đoković su konačno počeli da ostvaruju u novoj sezoni, koja bi kako sada stvari stoje trebala da bude najberićetnija za srpski tenis u poslednjih 15-tak godina!
- Lepi početak sezone nismo mogli da poelimo - oduevljen je potpredsednik TS SCG Radmilo Armenulić. - Posebno me raduje to je domaća javnost ponovo okrenuta ka teniserima. Publika je danima punila tribine na "Gemaksovim" terenima. Sve me to po malo podseća na osamdesete godine, kada su navijači hrlili u halu "Pionir" da bodre plave u Devis kupu...
A navijači na nedavno zavrenom "Gemaksovom" čelinderu su pokazali da su gladni dobrih mečeva.
- Već sledeće godine moemo da računamo na turnir sa jo većim nagradnim fondom i igračima iz prvih 100 na ATP listi. TK "Gemaks" planira i izgradnju velikog otvorenog teniskog terena, pa očekujem da će 2006 godine domaći ljubitelji "belog sporta" moći da uivaju i u majstorijama najvećih svetskih imena. Takođe, ne bi bilo loe kada bi mogli da izlobiramo da neka teniska zvezda odigra egzibicioni meč u Beogradu - prieljkuje Armenulić.
Legenda naeg tenisa očekuje da se ove godine Devis kup reprezentacija konačno plasira u Prvu grupu, dok bi dame trebale da bez problema dođu do Svetske grupe FED kupa.
- Ako bi Jelena Dokić zaigrala za plave, uspeh bi bio zagarantovan. Jelena je ove godine krenula veoma dobro, a očekujem da joj se u vrhu VTA liste uskoro priključi i Jelena Janković. NJih dve mogu da naprave i sjajan rezultat na OI u Atini, kao i Nenad Zimonjić u dublu - smatra Armenulić.

NENAD SE "PROBUDIO"
- NENAD Zimonjić je u najboljoj formi u poslednjih nekoliko godina! Jednostavno, ima mnogo tenisera koji se "probude" tek u odmakloj igračkoj karijeri i sigurno ga čekaju novi uspesi. to se tiče Janka Tipsarevića, koji je slabije počeo sezonu, mislim da bi to pre morao da nađe dobrog trenera - ističe Armenulić.
