Of course! :shrug:
I've been wanting this for a LONG time. Europe needs more tournaments. Is it fair that Mexico has more tournaments than Germany or Russia? Is it fair that Uzbekistan, Qatar, UAE, South Korea, and now Azerbaijan get events and Romania, Greece, Serbia, Belgium, Switzerland, Croatia, Ukraine, etc. don't :rolleyes:

But I think Romania deserves it more than other countries since they are the future of women's tennis :shrug:
It should be held on clay where they play the ATP event :shrug:

We'll probably have one but not in the next 2-3 years. There were talks about an International (220k) tournament in Romania, but due to the financial crisis the sponsors postopned their support. Romania is still in recession but next year the economy will start growing again and maybe the sponsors will show some interest for a WTA tournament.

I think it should be held in Brasov on clay, just before RG. Brasov has one of the most beautiful tennis complexes I've ever seen ;) bigger stands are nedeed but there's enough space for that...

Yes, one of the most picturesque tennis complexes I've ever seen, nestling between the houses of the old town :inlove:
