Question New tournament in Brazil - 2013

source...

it's almost certain that it will be after Bogota, in sao paulo with the male brazil open (indoor clay) or in riviera de sao lourenco, where they played a 25K ITF last week (hardcourt)

"Jorge Lacerda is very close to take another big hit. With cash and credibility with sponsors, the Brazilian Confederation has priority in the purchase of a WTA-level tournament, which belongs to a French promoter"

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

I vaguely remember the announcement of an upgrade of 100K+ BCR Ladies Open Romania in Bucharest (to a Premier event), the creation of a warm up tournament for Wimbledon on Grass near Cairo and the introduction of a second WTA tournament in Germany. The only thing I know for sure that 220K Marbella was cancelled and Family Circle Cup remains the only WTA tournament in first week of April 2012.

However: As it is always refreshing to see diversification especially during these difficult economic times, good luck to the organizers!

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

Brazil is really investing in tennis, they are trying to buy/rent a date to start a new ATP 500 and keep the ATP 250.
a brazilian tennis news broadcasted on espn brasil stated that everything is already set, but they can't announce before next years calendar is released

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

That would be amazing
But It's replacing Marbella in early April. I don't know if it's a good date

New WTA International in Brazil for 2013

It seems CBTenis has bought the vacant place Marbella's tournament left.
Of course it will be red clay cause it will be held the first week of April.
Don't know which city will host it yet.

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

I'm not surprised to see Brazil get a tournament. They are hosting the next olympics so of course they want to invest in more tourist attractions/events.

You would think that when you "purchase" a tournament, you are purchasing a time slot also. Not in the WTA's case. They purchased Marbella's right most likely but can move the dates.

Now, if they can fix the Acapulco/Memphis/Monterrey mess and add Brazil in there, February is a good month of smaller events in North America

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

Too bad it can't start this year to replace Marbella… It would be better to be during this season of the year (maybe last week) so there is a South American swing but it would be fine in the Marbella slot too as Brazil is extremely accessible from Miami.

Speaking of Latin American events, what ever happened to the one year in Viña del Mar, Chile? Any chance that would come back ?

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

If it was on hard courts they could probably convince Serena to play, I've read more than once that she wants to go to Brazil.

Re: New tournament in Brazil - 2013

Sounds good, especially with the 2016 Olympics heading to Brazil. Hopefully they can use the next few years to prepare for a great event at the games!

* 2008 * 2012 * Maria Sharapova * 2004 * 2006 *
* Ivanovic * Watson * BMS * Gavrilova * Voskoboeva * Robson * Kvitova * Mladenovic * Lisicki * FutureGoat Konjuh


Elena Baltacha. Never forgotten.
