any 75K challenger in the center of Europe, which all European players can reach by car, is going to attract a Tier 4 type field.

Second round potential Kookie vs Safarova

Last year they were in a final of a TierIII together :sad:

depends how you look at it - by top seed, by cut-off, by top100 players
i say - a draw is as strong as it's weakest match-ups (not including practical jokes of the luck goddess of LL vs WC suck-offs and such)
this is definatly of tier status.

maybe the reason why no Muller here is b/c she looked at the entry list and thought it is WTA tournie :lol:
