It would be nice if it was held at a different place every year and I'd rather see it in a country that doesn't have a grand slam.

Much as I would like it to be in London, I accept that's wishful thinking.

It would be nice if they put it in Spain though - I always think they don't seem to get much credit for the number of high class players they produce.

Plus it would be on clay, which is always amusing to see the top players struggle on .

I think the USA has already enough big tournaments. I would like it to change country every year, like Tine said, and in countries without a Grand Slam. AND in a country where tennis is very popular..

BELGIUM!!!!!!!!!!!!! We had the tourni in Antwerp for the first time and it was already the tourni with mosts spectators of all indoortournaments. I think if the Championships would be organised here...you get a full place for each match

Aside from Russia, the USA dominates the top 100 when it comes to actual players inside the top 100.

And as for the top 16, USA is by far ahead of the other nations.....with only France coming close.

We have lost SO many tournaments over the years, it is saddening - such as Houston, Philadelphia, Chicago, etc.

So, I would love to see the Chase come back to NY and add an entire indoor US Season Move all the European tournaments to after the Australian Open!

I wouldn't give it to Spain if last year's fed cup was anything to go by.

I'm prob being a grouch but i wouldn't go to sydney for one or two matches then go home.... for me that could be well over 50 hours on a plane. i guess its similar times for other europeans.

I thought it was perfectly fine in New York where it was many years before the relocation. As you can tell, the move to Munich was not a good one. The tournament just didn't get the exposure or the turn out that it got in New York.

Even though I wouldn't be able to have the pleasure to go, I would love for it to go back to MSG because it had such a great atmosphere - people were there to enjoy the tennis!
