    I just went to Turkey a few months ago. The part of the country the earthquake hit is very far away from most of the major cities. Istanbul is on the complete opposite side of the country and even a ways a way from the mildly populated cities so although this is sad for the people in southeast turkey it will realistically not affect the WTA finals.

    Fedace, you read that article I presume and must of seen this quote:
    "Today's earthquake in eastern Turkey has caused immense destruction, resulting in terrible loss of life." then use the word disaster relating to some tennis not being played there? If it goes ahead hopefully it'll bring some needed boost to the economy but if it didn't i don't think it's very high on their list of priorities.

    They should just move it to London and play it in O2 arena.

    When this sort of thing happens, tennis is the last thing that they need to worry about. Hope everyone is OK.
