It's not that simple.. Grass tennis is not big in Germany, so grasscourts are not something that you can find everywhere.. For 32/16 type of tournament you can get away with probably having only 4 courts.. For 64/16 type of tournament you might need at least 7-8 of them.. You probably need a facility half a size of SW19 to hold that.. They might have that kind of facility in Birmingham, Notthingham or Rosmalen .. But probably not in Halle. If you really want grass Masters, move WTA tourney from Rosmalen to Halle, and have an ATP Masters in Rosmalen..
