Which International tourney do you wish was upgraded to Premier and vice versa?

I feel that Luxembourg or Linz should be upgraded to a Premier tournament

I think that Warsaw and Los Angeles however should be downgraded.

What do you think?

Warsaw just got horrible luck in where it got placed this year, so I agree it should be downgraded
Los Angeles is San Diego next season.
I don't think any should be upgraded If I had to choose I'd say Osaka or Linz.

Agreed. Both of these are very valid because the atmosphere at Luxembourg is better than those at Los Angeles and Warsaw, and possibly even Charleston

I think Beijing could do with a slight downgrade, or the entire Asian season. They had such tiny crowds in the stands, you'd have to feel weird playing there after the electricity at the USO. European indoor season always had a pretty impressive fanbase.

I agree, upgrade Linz/Luxembourg/Moscow (bring back Zurich) then I'm happy however, downgrad Warsaw and New Haven, otherwise stupid pushers as Dulgheru and Wozniacki can call them Premier-Title-Winners.

Moscow is already a Premier unless you mean upgraded to Premier 5 which would be

It should definite;ly be a premier 5 since it was tier 1 before. Beijing stole it.

It is not the tournaments that is sucking, it is the schedule.
Sydney, Warsaw, Eastbourne, New Haven, Moscow all suffers from tanking or no show-ups, they should be renamed to Tank-ier tournaments.
