I'm not sure about the women tournament, but Estonians did not want to have two men events right now and would have preferred to have one tournament in the spring. But for men, ITF demands at least 2X15k or 3X10k in the following weeks. Latvians and Lithuanians refused to move their only tournaments, Finns were not ready to co-operate with the Estonians and Swedes would have but ITF decided that it's too far a part.
But there are only 2 10Ks... Do you mean in the general region? Sweden is quite close...
I just can't quite fathom why Tallinn would choose this week? Maybe because it was the weakest weak but although they want a weak event, most of the Estonian Girls can't even play... Eva could win the tournmanet I am surprised Mia Nicole isn't playing
