I think we've only got Internationals here in South America?

In 2002 it was a tier II and it attracted Seles, Myskina, peak Dokic

Now it´s going to be a MM, hopefully it will be in Rio so I might attend it :yeah:

Didn't Seleš defeated Dokić one year in SF, then Myskina did the same in SF next year? Jelena was really peaking :lol:
Bahia hosted it I think :scratch:

No, the President of Barzil's Tennis Federation confirmed that IMX (will team up with IMG) bought Marbella's licence. Until July they will decide where to play and WTA will decide about the week (if they will play in Februar, it should be on Red Clay).

I think its great that theirs a new country and new tournament and I know there are people here who are very happy about this, but I cant believe they are putting a tournament in Brazil and there still arent ones in Prague or Rromania. This will attract another whorers field and Brazil hasnt hosted a major tournament in ages. But still congratulations to brazil, but I think the WTA needs to learn not to just go to places with big money (baku...WTF!!!!!!!)

Hope this tournament sticks around for a long time - Bahia did not last long..neither did Sao Paulo before that

It it's on clay it would make sense to group it with Bogota and Acaplulco..although the WTA seem to make the most ridiculous decisions in regards to schedules these days so would not even be surprised to see it held a week before Wimbledon!

It's really weird that sucha large country doesn't have any female player in top200 and only 1 male player in top100 :help:

Her name is NOT Vecino. In Spain you identify people mostly by father's surname and Lara's is ARRUABARRENA. Please people stop talking about Lino, Vives, Santonja and so on. It's DOMÍNGUEZ, LLAGOSTERA, PARRA...

You can call them by the two surnames if you prefer, but calling them by their mother's surname is definitely wrong.

I don't think we posters remember those 2 Spanish last names correctly. You either let them call what they want or get over the stupid nickname of hers. :p

It is not weird considering the fact football is like 99% of the sports here.:sad:

It is weird that we have a female tennis player that won 7 singles Slams (3 Wimby 4 USO) and made another 6 singles finals (All 4 Slams), and won another 13 Slam titles on doubles during the 50's and 60's, Maria Bueno.:eek:

Isn't Vecino a part of her name? :weirdo:
I don't know why is that such a big deal. Now we have to know all spanish players middle names so we can call them correctly :facepalm:

Volleyball is big too. It accounts for like 0,3%. But just for the national team, the clubs are small.

A new sport goes big here everytime a player wins a gold medal at the olympics. That's why swimming is big again, but only for Cielo.

Bueno, Sharapova knows her! :lol:

Anyway good for Brazil to have a WTA event. Who knows, maybe one day Belgrade will have one too :lol: (still waiting for aliens to come down to the earth and then we will have it :weirdo: )
