- Singapore - too little, not many fans
- Tianjin - China already has a mandatory event
it's a toss up between Kazan and Mexico City but Kanzan will take it simply Russia has better facility and more tennis fans

Mexico City, I reckon it would be full and have good atmosphere.

I would love it to be in Singapore but Mexico is more legit to replicate success and atmosphere of Istanbul. Kazan is great 'sport city' and Bars is by far best hockey team in KHL but i doubt tennis would be popular there

Re: Which city would you want to see the WTA Championships 2014 & beyond be held?

Mexico City, then Singapore. Mexico City would be very interesting and I think it'd be packed out, and Singapore is a really nice country and I'm sure they can afford to put on an event. I don't want China or Qatar to hold it at all cause the crowds would suck there.
