Rumor is that they want to get a high level challenger in the winter. I'm guessing a tourney right after Midland? Wouls actually get a decent draw if it was a 125k/100k.
My mind went straight to there as well, would probably attract a good draw next to Midland on the challenger circuit - could even make it a WTA 125k.
Sad to see this tournament go, for many years it was a player favourite (won many awards in its heyday) and quite a list of memorable players who have won or played finals here. Unfortunately being indoor carpet as a lone event after the US Open geographically stood out like a sore thumb.
"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!
But he loves you."
