2014 YEC host cities narrowed to 3 candidates. Where do you want it to be held?

From WTA's Facebook:

WTA
‎2014 #WTAChamps host cities narrowed to 3 cities.

Monterrey, Mexico, Singapore or Tianjin, China.

Thoughts?



That means Kazan, Russia has been eliminated from the running and Monterrey replaces Mexico City as a candidate.

Monterrey takes over Mexico City too.

Please not Tianjin

Singapore would be quite nice, an exotic location with quite a well to do international population. Would create quite the atmosphere and really, be the only remaining city to give the event its prestige.

There afre way too many kidnappings in Monterrey and Singapore is too hot and humid.

I have nothing against Tianjin at all. I've been there and it is probably my favorite city in China The city is gorgeous and feels so different from the rest of Chinese cities I was impressed during my visit there. I'd call it the Europe of China but China has way too many tournaments already and Singapore would be a better choice I think.

I originally picked Mexico but I'd go with Singapore now that I really think about it.

I don't really like any of the locations

But if I had to choose one of the three - my vote would go to Singapore

LOL @ SEWTA
That's the best they could do? Singapore and Tianjin (barely) are the only cities with international standing. Monterrey is being destroyed by the drug war and Kazan is a second tier city even in Russia. All have no tennis pedigree.

Monterrey. Central America is gearing up for the Olympics. I'd love the idea of bringing high caliber tennis to Central America at the end of the year.
