TVR2 seems to be the only media (TV) partner so I suppose they will cover this tournament.

Re: WTA event in Romania??

It seems that Elena Bogdan really could enter the main draw directly, so tournament director Marius Comanescu has announced that the 4 main draw wildcards will go to
* Elora Dabija
* Cristina Dinu
* Diana Enache
* Andreea Mitu

The 6 qualifying wildcards will go to
* Camelia Cristea
* Raluca Platon
* Andreea Iova
* Larissa Sporea
* Simona Ionescu
* Alexandra Damaschin

So, no wildcards to our young junior generation...

The main draw wildcards as expected to the highest ranked Romanian players who can't eneter directly. I don't know why Buzarnescu didn't want to enter, though...

Re: WTA event in Romania??

I think these are good WC choices since a lot of the younger girls are playing the European Championships

Good point but it's only the U14 and U16 girls, 4 girls total.

Re: WTA event in Romania??

OK, some changes in the entry list because of late withdrawals and this is qualifying draw:

(1)Estrella Cabeza-Candela (ESP) v Lyudmyla Kichenok (UKR)
Matilda Hamlin (SWE) v (wc)Georgiana Patrasc (ROU)

Larisa Sporea (ROU) v Zuzana Luknarova (SVK)
(7)Andreja Klepac (SLO) v Ionela-Andreea Iova (ROU)

(2)Kristyna Pliskova (CZE) v (wc)Gabriela Talaba (ROU)
Bianca Hincu (ROU) v Sabina Lupu (ROU)

Ingrid-Alexandra Radu (ROU) v (wc)Carla Georgescu (AUS)
(6)Eva Fernandez-Brugues (ESP) v Claudia Antonia Enache (ROU)

(3)Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) v Laura-Ioana Andrei (ROU)
Gabriela Duca (ROU) v (wc)Alexandra Damaschin (ROU)

Dalia Zafirova (BUL) v Agnes Szatmari (ROU)
(8)Annalisa Bona (ITA) v Darija Jurak (CRO)

(4)Natalie Piquion (FRA) v Elizaveta Ianchuk (UKR)
Nadiya Kichenok (UKR) v (wc)Lorena Gheorghe (ROU)

Raluca Elena Platon (ROU) v (wc)Simona Ionescu (ROU)
(5)Lenka Jurikova (SVK) v Alexandra Ion (ROU)

So the wildcards were awarded to Georgescu, Gheorghe, Talaba, Patrasc and at least the Romanian sportpress had 2 right with Damaschin and Ionescu (Iova, Platon and Sporea with direct entry)!

Re: WTA event in Romania??

4 of 8 players in the quarters are from Romania!

And one is guaranteed in the semis because Sorana and Alexandra are playing each other!

Bucharest will still be 100k+H and Craiova is upgraded to 50k+H.

Re: Romania to finally host a WTA event in 2014?

Unfortunately i don't think it is true (yet). Today the WTA announced a whole load of changes to the calendar for 2014 and 2015 and there was no mention of Bucharest. Unless it's going to be announced separately in the next few days? Fingers crossed!

Re: Romania to finally host a WTA event in 2014?

My guess is that Romanian newspapers are bluffing.
A wish is one thing but to materialize is another. WTA won't move anything before they know they got a better deal.
Who are the sponsors? This media speculation reminds me of daily pompous titles about imaginary soccer transactions that made me stop paying any attention years ago.

Re: Romania to finally host a WTA event in 2014?

It says that BCR (part of the ERSTE Group for foreigners) would be the sponsor (the one who hosted the biggest ITF in Bucharest till last year)


Anyway, I didn't find anywhere else that Budapest would be canceled. + the tourney is shown also in the provisionally 2015 Calendar .

It would be very nice but it doesn't look very credible at the moment . Last year, the Calendar was last edited on the 15th of December.
