Hey :D

Who is going to Hasselt? I will probably be going only for one day: the Sunday of qualifying. I find the tickets ridiculously expensive, to be very honest..

I've heard so many people say that Knokke was one of the best tournaments on the WTA calendar. Sadly I never went there.

After they left Knokke a new WTA tournament was organized one year in Brussels (Casanova beat Sanchez-Vicario in the finals there), unforturnately that event was canceled the next year.

It was one of the best! And yes, in Brussel was more money, so Knokke was sold and one year later the tournament was dead because in Brussel was no public or ambiance! All that was in Knokke, it was such a lovely tournament.
And you could see the practice courts!

I saw my favorite Maria Sanchez Lorenzo win the semi finals, two days later she won the first WTA tournament in Knokke. Sadly enough I couldn't be there :(
Two years later one of my other favorites Iroda Tulyaganova won the third en last WTA tournement in Knokke. I was there the first three days!

Know I hope Hasselt will become a great tournoment, but I am afraid that this tournament would be too big! And I like outdoor more then indoor.

yeah, that tournament was just so great! I went there 3 times , once I played in a sort of clinic, with Daniillidou and some other girls, I also saw Kim playing there twice and I once saw Lleyton :hearts: (and got his autograph + a pic :D probably one of the most wonderful moments I've ever had)

qualies too weak, school in the week and finals too expensive
same here!!! I would love to go on Tuesday or Wednesday, you see more matches for less money :) but, I already took 'a day off' from school last year to go to the French Open, don't think my dad will let me stay home from school another day to go and watch some tennis :p

When you come by train just take bus H3 (direction trichterheide) and let the driver bring you to the tournament. But watch out last bus is at 8pm or something. There's another busstop a bit further and that one has late busses :) (line 45 (direction: hasselt) for example)
