Will this FINALLY teach the WTA to take more things into consideration when they're deciding who to give tournaments to other than who's offering the most money?

Well, I'll be happily proved wrong, but it being 'sold out' isn't NECESSARILY an indicator that the crowds will be full - the corporate sponsors of tournaments like this often block-buy tickets to give to employees (who don't actually accept the tickets) if they're struggling to sell, to avoid negative publicity.
The tickets were dirty cheap when I last checked. I am sure they would be sold well in a city of 15 million.

More details...

The players party was cancelled when a militant Serbian group called EmpJJ threatened to attack the party, if their leader wasn´t given an invitation to the party. Luckily the group leader wasn´t interested to participate in the actual tournament, so that can go ahead as planned.

Beijing and Shanghai safe cities

I'd rather go to Bogota

Its a pity, we won't see the players all-glammed-up but indeed the cancellation is well-grounded since the whole country is in mourn

Been to any?
Chinese cities feel as one of the safest cities for foreigners. Not speaking about the pollution conditions of course.

And no, I wouldnt want YEC to be moved to China.

Move it back to Madison Square Garden

But I fear it would be empty stands

This. Show some respect please. The fact that some posters use this as an argument to move the YEC to their preferred city is tasteless.

Comparing the deaths of soldiers in war to that of civilians in an unexpected attack is ludicrous and demeaning to both. A soldier is committed to warfare and sometimes that includes dying in battle. Calling attacks by one army (rebel forces) against another (Turkish National) "terrorism" renders the term meaningless except for its propagandist effect.

Here's a simple fact - if it isn't directed at civilians or civilian areas it isn't terrorism. Period.
