Anyone remember way back in '04 - WTA Tour stop in Vancouver: Odlum Brown WTA Women's Open. Was Nicole Vaidisova's first title. I don't seem to remember it coming back to town in '05. Does anyone know anything about this?

It was a VERY weak tournament, with the top seed being #50 in the world, Marion Bartoli. The sales were also less than spectacular, so the tournament in 2005, was a 75k men's challenger, and a 25k ladies' challenger.

To be fair though the tournament was sprung on the WTA tour at very short notice; i think it appeared about six weeks before on the schedule; the WTA didnt really publicise it at all either.
