Even 90% humidity was not a problem in such a beautiful setting

It would be like the Brazil Open, Indoor clay in Ibirapuera with 11.000 seats!

Indoor clay is far better than outdoor clay, much more fast!

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

I just hope they change dates. Who is going to play in South America for just one week? Especially when you have a bigger tournament in North America at the same time and tournaments in Europe the following week...

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

Changing dates is not something they can do so easily. They bought a vacant place in the calendar and they cannot move it. The week after Bogota there are already 3 tournaments, it's impossible they can put a fourth one on the same week. Marbella's left its place and of course if there's an empty place WTA will try to fill it.

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

They can put one tournament in week when Fed Cup is scheduled. Marion and some other players would play for sure.

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

This will be good prep for the Olympics. Who are the Brazilian prospects, though? They need to work on that.

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

I am glad South America is getting more events. Vina del Mar was canceled immediately, but hopefully Brazil can last. They did have a hardcourt event after US Open that did fairly well, in terms of what players went there. Venus even entered it, but withdrew since she won USO.

More events in South America and Africa please. An event in South Africa, Johannesburg would be nice.

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

I attended the ATP Challenger Finals last year and I am attending Brazil Open this weekend.

The Finals were pretty cool and had a decent crowd in the arena.

Unfortunately the complex is very old and the despite the fact there were made some improvements last year, it is still not at the same quality level of other international competitions.

Spiceboy’s input is not up to date.

MatchMaker, the promoter of both 220K tournaments in Austria (Bad Gastein & Linz), bought 220K Barcelona license from Arantxa Sánchez Vicario, who decided last December to sell her permit. The multiple GS Champion and Spain’s Fed-Cup Captain will work as tournament adviser or ambassador in the future.

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

I'm not getting my hopes up. There have been so many "false promises" the last two years about new tournaments, including the grass event in Egypt

The new Austrian owners have decided to keep the tournament in Barcelona this year only until they find a new location (which could actually be Austria, Spain or any other country).
