They should't be offended - Iga as #1 can pick whatever tournament she likes. And for whatever reason. Sorry, they should face it - perhaps they are just not that important in the WTA calendar.At the end they mentioned they hope to make a good connection with Iga’s dad and convince Iga to come next year hopefully they will have a shoulder mattress for her (German dry joke).
And I think Iga skipped Berlin cos this silly glass brick trophy. She needs big silver cup containers with a lid for her tiramisu.
