Collins Cup Goes Belly up

Has this been posted already?

It is in April issue of Ace Magazine (which also includes 20 sexiest players in the world!!!)

Basically it says the organisation behind the collins cup has gone into liquidation, it blames the failer of the event on overly ambitious ticket sale projections.

If this has been posted already, could an admin please delete it?

"You Worry About Your Jump Rope and Yourself!" -Coral on Battle of the Sexes 2
(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**
Rtael is online now

The concept should be USA vs the World

actually, thatd be a great idea for the tour to pursue

have a joint Davis/Fed Cup Exo with some of the top players

it would make them all goobles of money and theyd all have fun, and it could be for a good cause

Like
North America vs. S. America
Europe vs. Asia
then the winners play

Best of 9
4 singles womens
4 singles mens
1 mixed doubles

What about Africa and Australia then? They have some good players too and it wouldn't be fair to completely leave them out.

no Europe vs America is fine

like the Ryder Cup

i think having a mens/womens team is cool tho.

well actually having a womens team of 5 and a mens team of 5 at the same event

that would be class
