All of the countries I mentioned want WTAs. The serbian tennis federation wanted a joint event with ATP, WTA said no. Czechs will presumably get one. WTA said no to slovak republic because "there was no time to fit an indoor tournament in". As if, theyre putting indoor challengers in Asia after Sofia, im sure they could fit one in Bratislava. Belarus may not have enough funds but according to their fed cup captain theyre making a push for one now. Romania must have funds given how many 100ks they put on last year and they have a mens tournament. The WTA has no excuse to put tournaments in Azerbaijan anymore. I would half understand Georgia but Azerbaijan. They have no ranked players except fro Kamila Farhad who got all her rankinh points getting 1s at 25k first rounds and WTAs. Someone look up her activity. I dont think she has ever won a Maindraw match above 10K level. She got double bagelled by Saisai Zheng for god sakes!!!

Re: Have the WTA completely stuffed up the calender?

It takes money to get an event. If these countries have cash, they can have whatever they want.

Re: Have the WTA completely stuffed up the calender?

The real problem is that below Premiers, Tier III &IV dont pay the players. Unless like Woz this week, the tournament sponsors need her.
They pay WTA, but players get almost nothing. Even worse with ITF challengers. A $10,000 challenger pays nothing to the players working hard all week.

More money has to get to the rank & file players

Indeed.
Non-profitable tournaments are going to be closed in a year or two, so what's the fuss about?

Re: NEW SEWTA 2013 Calendar - Memphis Cancel, 4 New MM Including Cairo, Rio De Janeir

Paris is not moving probably because after USO there is the ATP Masters in Paris ... they probably don't want two indoor tennis events in such a short amount of time ... also it depends on TV schedule, schedule of the facility etc ... it is not that easy to simply move an event to a different time on the calendar unless you are the Wozniacki Open

Re: NEW SEWTA 2013 Calendar - Memphis Cancel, 4 New MM Including Cairo, Rio De Janeir

IMHO, the (presumed) Parisian predicament can partially be attributed to the tournament itself. Both organization and venue are not up to today's standards anymore.

Re: NEW SEWTA 2013 Calendar - Memphis Cancel, 4 New MM Including Cairo, Rio De Janeir

Seriously. All I hear is gripes about too many tournaments in America, and now there are too many in Asia.
Let's stop pretending that "tennis tradition" in nations are such a huge factor. Also - just because you build, doesn't mean it'll be success. In all countries - Rome/Madrid have new massive stadiums that they struggle to fill on the weekdays.

The WTA is a business, and this schedule will make them more money, which goes back to the players and keeps them around playing. I don't see the problem.

Re: NEW SEWTA 2013 Calendar - Memphis Cancel, 4 New MM Including Cairo, Rio De Janeir

Memphis . According to what's written here though one of the "Rio de Janeiro" spots will actually be a different tournament in Brazil as the current one bought the Marbella tournament while another one was trying to buy Memphis…

Hopefully the "TBD" of the first week will be Bali, although apparently Singapore wants a tournament too. Most likely it will be nothing though because they originally had that for 2012 . Hopefully the spring one will be Warsaw or Prague .

Soooo many US tournaments are disappearing .

Yes, it probably won't last. The "Anda Open" in Tel Aviv was also put on the calendar a few years in a row and got cancelled each time before they finally gave up .
