Which retired tournament do you miss the most?

I just watched some Zurich highlights back when Ivanovic was emerging, and it made me think of how much I miss this tournament...

Amelia Island, Berlin and when Stuttgart was indoors.

Re: Which retired tournament do you miss the most?

I really miss Hilton Head and Amelia Island even tho I hate green clay. I loved AI's CC it was so intimate and there was a big ole tree in the back which added to the coziness.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

I always wanted to go Amelia Island just so I could climb that tree and watch tennis from that vantage point.

Scottsdale.

It pulled the best players because it was an IW tune-up, and conversely, it made have a California tournament that time of year not completely riduclous.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Re: Which retired tournament do you miss the most?

For me it's obviously Zurich, but I also miss Amelia Island, easily the best center court IMO. Philadelphia was great too.

Amelia Island, Berlin, when Stuttgart was played on HC indoors, Zurich too. If I have to choose one though it's AI.

Re: Which retired tournament do you miss the most?

I miss the whole European fall season.
But to pick one tournament, I think I liked Antwerp the most. It had such a nice atmosphere, the music when the players entered ... and of course the trophy.
