Cool Budapest is TIER III event from 2007!

WTA directors voted Budapest Grand Prix in 40th best tournements of WTA Tour, that's why Budapest Grand Prix is moved up a level to be a TIER III event from this year with the price 175000 $...

Re: Budapest is TIER III event from 2007!

the real reason is that the new main sponsor GDF gives more money than the last one Szerencsejáték Zrt. (Tippmix)

That's true, but:

-money is not enough to level up a tournement. See what happen with Dubai! The price in Dubai is 1 million $ but they can't be TIER I event...
-Hungarian Sport Events allways are very-very good organized. Everybody know it.

So, my oppiion is:
Budapest is TIER III event, because of:
-MONEY (from GDF)
-Good organization
-WTA directors votes in best 40 tournements of WTA Tour

De ez most tényleg igaz....Lehet, hogy az előkészületek nem zökkenőmentesek, sőt... Elismerem, az előkészület nem megy nekünk rendesen.

De: maga a szervezés, lebonyolítás mindig világszínvonalúra sikeredik! Ezt nem lehet elvitatni, hogy a lebonyolításban világbajnokok vagyunk! Ne is győzz meg az ellenkezőjéről, mert nem hiszem el úgysem.

Re: Budapest is TIER III event from 2007!

they should have gotten a better entry list if players knew it was Tier III

Re: Budapest is TIER III event from 2007!

I hope Jie Zheng enters as a last minute Silver WC
she needs points to replace her Estoril 2006 win that is falling off

I know ... I am just joking
the Chinese Federation do not allow any of their players to get WC outside of China anyway ... too much restrictions with traveling abroad

but I think she deserves one

how can that be possible? I thought tournament organizers had to hold the 3rd WC for a Gold or Silver exempt player until the week before the tournament
