Apologises if mentioned before but if you go here.........

http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3/global/includes/TrackIt.asp?file=http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3/global/pdfs/events/2007/TourCalendar.pdf

it takes you to the 2007 calender.

Just found it by changing the link from the 2006 to 2007 under the tournaments page on the website.

No real changes for 2007 except we have lost Canberra and have gained a new tournament in Barcelona two weeks before Wimbledon.

with $170,000 prize money, Hobart's a Tier IV, with 5,000$ more, you've got all the tier III... Why not upgrade it ? :scratch:

England needs more tournies, 3 isn't enough, as we invented the game! :devil: We need one up north as well! :D

Too bad we lost Canberra, it always had a good field for a Tier IV!
And so, Dubai keeps the Tier II status, even though it offers more prize money than the Tier Is :rolleyes:

Thanks for posting.

I just do not get wht the WTA doesn't make some small changes that would make the calender so much better.

Like- they kep tlaking about shortening the season. They can easy knowck off one week- change Quebec City to the week of Sept 10 (Fed Cup final, Bali) and Hasslett to Oct 22 and then have Championships in Madrid on Oct 29. It may increase the field in Cananda.

Also, why not have Portoroz the week o of July 30- same as LA- so you have 4 straight European events in July or August (or if not move Stockholm a week earlier)

And it is great Barcelona is back but why not move it the wek of April 23 -it would 1. Fill the void of that week 2. Start clay on in Europe a week earlier 3 Close to Estoril the next week.

The alterite would be to push Fed Cup back a week and re introduce Sarasota ( or Tampa or Houston) and play it the week after Miami (Arpil 2) and then push back Amelia Island (April 9) and then Charlie (april 16).

The whole 3 tounries per week is no good. But if you have to have 3 in a week- maube put 3 events the week Israel has played- I mean hopefully the situation there will improve but the tour is setting itself up again.

Given the tour has a 'road map to 2010' they have done not so much to get the 'ball rolling in 2007.

Isnt the Aussie Open being played alittle too early in the year (I thought there was talks last year to mid february to combat the extreme heat).

Quebec City is an indoor tourni and the indoor season doesn't start immediately after the US Open.
Honestly I didn't see a big issue with there being a tourni the week of the YEC.
I thought it was nice to give those players who wanted an opportunity to play to do so like there was with Pattaya City years ago.

I feel that the WTA is doing the right thing with Barcelona.
The clay court specialist on tour deserve a choice.
If they feel that the way to do well on grass is to warm up on clay then why not.
They had a clay tourni scheduled at the same point in the calendar last year but it was in Italy and was cancelled.

Potoroz gives those players who don't want to travel to Asia and who would like to play the European indoor season an adequate warm-up tourni.

I don't see a reason why the WTA would consider pushing FED CUP back a week for a Tier V tourni.
They might consider one at the same week as Amelia Island though.

I don't know if I would agree with that week off change either.
A lot of players play during the that FED CUP week.
They've just played on hard courts and changed to green clay and now are likely playing on a different surface in FED CUP as well.
It's draining emotionally and physically.

Because it wopuld give an extra week between amelia island and miami- more players may want to play there and also for Charleston.



With Quebec- it is not played the same week as the Madrid- it would be an easy way to shorten the year by moving Madrid a week earleir. That is all. I thinnk the Championships should stand alone anyway- it is meant to be a big deal.

If it was a Tier 4- no one has to play- may of those player would probably play a challenger that week anyway.

Anyway back to the calendar- I thought Hobart was now going to be a 56 draw? (part of ther deal of Canberra going I thought was for Hobart to be bigger so players could still play tat week)

Nah, it's the same. If they want move AO to February and we will say RIP to all those players. February is the hottest month of year in Australia :p

Why can't they put Barcelona in same week of San Diego? There's no European event that week and the following week in Stockholm! :lol:

That's what I was asking too (there was another thread like this)...plus the worse thing is that they just got a massive grant from the govt to upgrade the tourney...so wtf? :lol: (They are doing up the clubhouse too).

Canberra always had shite crowds though - I dunno how the heck they made any money! Every time I went there was like 20 people there! :o It's a bad time to have it in Canberra anyway, coz Summernats (car shite) is on the same week.

But Hobart was meant to be going up to a Tier 3 and a 48 draw because of that so :shrug: I dunno...

yeah, there were talks, that quickly got quashed when people reslied it would probably be crap for the tournament.

Yup, it was meant to be a Tier 3 next year too :shrug: It's weird!
