WTA event in Ireland???

Ireland never had a WTA event, would love to have one here. But the big question is when? Countries like Uzbekistan can afford it???

Re: WTA event in Ireland???

Be interesting to add another week of warm up for Wimbledon. Ireland has some grass courts.

Re: WTA event in Ireland???

I believe the Irish Open was a WTA event in the early 1970s. At the start of the tour. The Irish Open is the world's second oldest tennis tournament and is now solely a men's event on the ITF circut

Last 10k in Ireland was back in 2005. I think it was a 25k in the early 00s.

During the boom I feel tennis Ireland didn't take advantage of the extra money rolling around I mean Ireland hosted other shit over those years but never a ATP/WTA event.

I'd actually prefer a clay event during the clay season so that Ireland would actually build some clay courts So many ITFs are on clay that Ireland's lack of clay courts can hinder the players when playing the ITF circut.

I mean we'll always have Mabel Cahill, Joshua Pim, James Cecil Parke and Willoughby Hamilton.

Re: WTA event in Ireland???

Did any Irish people here attend the Collins Cup exhibition back in 2002. Remember seeing Venus, Serena, Lindsay, Monica, Hantuchova, Bovina (I think), Schett and Majoli.

For some reason Kournikova only played singles at that event Bovina replaced Dokic.

It was a good event but really the stands were maybe 55%-65% full. I dunno how many people in Ireland would attend say an ATP 250 or WTA International event. I feel attendances would be more like Baku than Portoroz.
