Does anyone know what happened to the Tier 4 Danish event in Aarhuus that was meant to take place this week as well? I havent heard anything official that it was cancelled for financial reasons.

On an off-side - very sad to see Miriam Oremans announcing her retirement today - a true grass court player!!!

It was mention in the danish press about 1-2 Month ago, no sponsors, no money, no tourny. (also posted here in the forum a few times)

Yes its a shame :sad: we have never had any WTA tournaments, only a few challenger events, but Denmark is a small country, don't seem like we can find the money even for a Tier 4 event.

We had one big Sponsor, but also needed more smaller ones.
I still think they at least could make a small maybe 25K challenger event, but maybe next year, but they don't seem to plan any WTA tourny next year either.

I feel sorry for all the danish people who wanted to see good tennis; but i can't understand why they can't afford it. Isn't Denmark quite a rich country??:confused:
