fran and iroda were big names there once upon a decade ago (it only seems so...)
but these are the sole three tourny weeks of the year - it's extremely diffoicult to get the big names from europe - we don't have enough asian top players.
don't forget that uzbekistan is the only country with a real tennis spirit o it within the neighboring countries - but at the moment only russians are going there by the mass. what about the georgians, turks, indians, thai, indonesian players - they could have created a very nice field together.
the timing is a problem - but asian tennis should award WCs for the national champs, the asian games champs, give out WCs to usually classical doubles specialtists - make it into a real asian tennis festival. it can be great, but it requires a shift of piorities - playing home and not far far away fighting for the last few points.
if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
