Smaller tournaments struggle to lure players, but the second-year WTA International in Mallorca may have a secret weapon.
The competing event this week is a Premier; more points on offer. But if the main goal is to get matches on the grass, Mallorca has it all over Birmingham.
The weather is typically warmer, with far less rain. And look at the view from Victoria Azarenka’s accommodations. Genie Bouchard and her family have a similar house.
Beaches and mountains, vs. the middle of England? Easy call.
