There's grass in Egpyt?

I just realised how insanesly ridiculous this is, but I'd never thought of there being anything but sand and manmade surfaces in Egypt!

As your note opposes MatchMakers’ press release (“Barcelona has a huge potential as a world capital for a fantastic WTA tournament”) please back your input up.

NewGiza is a huge real estate project under construction (north of Cairo near road to Alexandria) including a 18-holes championship golf course and some tennis grass courts.

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

Well, as I told you, I went to Brasil Open yesterday. It is an ATP 250.

1-There is no parking lot for the general public. No subway station nearby too.

2-Huge lines to get in before entering the arena.

3-No air conditioning. It was like 30-33ºC!

4-Few bathrooms.

There is a loooooooooong way to make something decent over here.

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

it's confirmed!
http://tenisjn.zip.net/arch2012-03-1...9_46-2919530-0

WTA confirmado - Conforme antecipado neste Blog há dois meses, a CBT viajou para Miami e assinou contrato com a Associação feminina para fazer um WTA a partir de 2013, o que selará a volta dos torneios de primeira ponta depois de 11 anos (o último foi na Costa do Sauípe, em 2002). Existe uma dificuldade quanto à data. A ideia era fazer grudado ao de Bogotá, em fevereiro, mas já existem torneios antes (ITF de Cali) e depois (Acapulco e Monterrey).

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

It's confirmed but we don't know the dates yet.
I already heard about the week after AO. This will be a bad date IMO. But they also said it could be the week after Miami. But only in July they'll give the official date and what will be the city to held it.

And about cities, there are big chances of being held in Rio de Janeiro, Brasília and São Paulo (São Paulo for what I've read is in the last place and Rio de Janeiro is trying to buy the Memphis tournament, so Brasília is a big name on this).

Flavia Pennetta - Victoria Azarenka - Andrea Petkovic

I hope it does. Too many tournaments in US and the field there was getting worse and worse now every year.

it will end up being in sao paulo due to the facilities and due to the fact that they already have the courts,and also the Brazil Open (ATP) was very sucessful!

The US is as large as continental Europe. There are still plenty of Americans who don't live anywhere near a tennis tournament
