WTA calender sucks. What else is new. They don't plan the schedule properly. Why the hell is Barcelona tourney after French Open.?? They could have out it on the same week as in Amilie isand or charleston oe budapest. Poor schedule.
FES, as in Foreign Exchange Student from "That 70's Show"? LOL. Just jokes. In all seriousness though, I don't know what the place is like but if Henri Leconte endorses the place then it must be a decent place to hold a tournament.
Tel Aviv should be the same week as Zurich, then Linz and Quebec City can be in the same week, thus bringing the season to an end one week earlier. Oh, was that too much common sense for the WTA Tour? Sorry.
