wow, that's amazing. thats a tier III, no? not totally sure, regardless, its a great turnout for a tourney where basically none of the top 20 are playing (or close to it)
its totally pathetic what is happening in LA. the ticket prices clearly priced most everyone out.

RAA it is a tier two and Justine and Venus was playing, but looking at the field it is amazing even the first few rounds is at least half full, my guess is that it is a final. Well I think belgium would be great to host year end champ coz of Kim and Justine right now, but in practical term, we can't just say shift and they will shift, I am sure there are technical problem (eg sponsor problem)

unless WTA tour is prepare to lower the money purse for year end champ coz frankly, sponsorship will not throw that much money to host an event ina small country no matter how popular it is
