Wow....kind of boring.....no changes except for Quebec.

Was hoping they would add an indoor event at the end of the year in USA.

No new events either.

After all the talk about Hamburg going there was an article stating that it would still be around in 2003.

2004 will be a different story when there will be 2 10 day mixed clay tournaments. Hamburg, Rome, Monaco and Madrid are the contenders.

I would hope for Rome and Monaco......

Rome because it is the best clay event and Monaco because it's new

New event in India

Interesting that Quebec has moved!

They should have a tier 2 in the USA before the Chase champs!

Maybe in Chicargo?

I wish they would have an event in Chicago, they used to and I was young, but I remeber going once, I mean it's not like we get that much of a chance to see really good tennis around here.

BTW - I think it's a bad idea cause Top players haven't enough preparing for playing on clay at first tournament in Tier I event!!

Yes, Chicago needs an event to come back - even a Tier III would be great. It's the biggest city in the world that's without a tennis event - mens or womens.
