Well, I gues no web site. Here in Uzbekistan, organisers will never think about this. This needs additional funds.
Pff. They should have a website. I think Uzbekistan isn't that poor country.

umm...Uzbekistan isn't dirt poor like Albania or many African nations, but it is a newly formed nation that is just starting to get on its feet. So it does have economic struggles and still has poverty. So I agree, to think of having a website (maybe they can make one for free like those cheap challenger sites) would be dreaming. I think they are pleased and thankful that the tournament is back to the WTA for another year.

I can also understand that they don't have a website. The internet connections are not that developed there yet.

I just hope that the WTA will receive results quickly and post them on their website.

And we have Anvar who will most probably be attending the tournament and hopefully feed us back on the qualifying results :) .

I partly agree. They are lucky to get a WTA tournament if we think that Tulyaganova is their only star on tour. There are many more developed countries which don't have a tourney of their own. Norway, Sweden, Denmark for example. However, on the other hand, it is nice to see tennis is an all-around-the-world sport.

yes matthias, the editor of this site is a wta-world member :)

It is more important for Uzbekistan to have WTA tournament than many other "developed" countries. This tournament will not be ignored by the people living in Tashkent, and thinking about children who wants to play tennis, to see the players live and read about them in the papers will urge them on and tomorrow you will find even more children on the tennis courts and in the back yards in Tashkent playing tennis, wanting to be as good as Tulyaganova or Williams or Isroilova :bounce: :bounce:
