Goodbye Carson, Hello San Diego in 2010

The LA Times this morning reported that there will be no LA tournament next year. That tournament is moving back to the La Costa tennis center where the San Diego event was held for many years.

AEG owned the event until this year. It was recently purchased by Octagon, who decided to move it to San Diego.


Excellent move IMO. I loved the San Diego tournament, while the Carson tournament is a disaster

I liked LA more than San Diego.

The LA event was the only one on tour without a title sponsor, so it was just a matter of time really.

Not a bad idea - whenever I watched any coverage of this event the stands were 3/4 empty and this was the semis and final.
