View Full Version : Why was the Ladie's plate event stopped?

After reading about Martina Navratilova making into the final of the consolation event at Eastbourne, which I didn't know existed, (they used to have a junior event) it made me remember that Wimbldedon years ago had a similar event but stopped it.

Does anyone know why that event was abandoned? Considering the talent that will lose in the early rounds this year, it just seems like it would be a fun event to have back at Wimbledon.
