German Open Won't Leave Berlin in 2004

Fears that the German Open Women's Tournament would be moved to Hamburg have been officially quashed. Despite financial woes, the competition will be held in Berlin from May 3 to 9, 2004, German Tennis Association head Georg von Waldenfels confirmed in a letter to Berlin mayor Klaus Wowereit. This year's German Open ended with losses of €400,000 ($470,00). The capital could ultimately lose the tournament to another German city if Berlin doesn't make a bigger effort to ensure the event's financial viability, von Waldenfels warned.
