Bye Bye Prague

Last Prague Open scheduled for July

PRAGUE -- The Prague Open will not return to the WTA Tour schedule after this year's edition because of financial problems.
Tournament director Vladislav Savrda said Wednesday that organizers lost its major financial partner and will not be able to organize the event on clay at the Stvanice stadium.
Savrda said he has been negotiating the sale of the tournament with the WTA board of directors. Financial details were not given.
The last Prague Open is scheduled for July 12-18.
The WTA tour returned to the Czech capital after seven years in 2005, with Dinara Safina of Russia winning the first edition. Sybille Bammer of Austria won last year.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

I hope so. Prague is too great and special a city not to have it's own WTA tournament.

I hope it doesn't disappear

"Sometimes we've wondered if Martina actually knew what she was saying. Maybe it was her age or inexperience or something got lost in the translation. But I don't know. She comes out with something astounding and then just stares at you like, 'What did I say?' But then she'll have that glint in her eye."
