website?

will this tournament have a website?
because i heared india is a high level computer country, so they should have one!!!

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

I will have the usual web page like those I keep for all Indian events, at http://www.tennisindia.org

I expect that they will have an official website for the tournament. If they don't have one, I am sure they will forward scors to me fast enough to update my page for the event. Let us see how it goes.

roby, the Chennai Open and the Hyderabad Indian Open are organized by two totally different companies. Chennai Open is run by IMG, the international group, and in my view they have not managed it very well. Having said that, I should say that the different contractors who have made the Chennai Open website over the years have all done quite a good job - just that this year it sucked big rocks.

By the way, Chennai Open, way back in 1997 was one of only two websites (the other being the Swedish Open, I believe) outside of IBM's grand slam sites and ATP's masters sites, to have ball-by-ball online score updates form the center court! So, generalizing something based on this year's Chennai website is not very logical.

Anyway, Hyderbad WTA is organized by "Globosport" of Mahesh Bhupathi. First time they are doing it, and most of the planning for this event has only been over the last 2-3 months or so since WTA approved it. Not sure if they have contracted anybody to do a website yet. If they have a website, it could be good or it could just suck. Who knows!


Matthias: No, I am not involved in the All India Tennis Association, but I do get official info from them often, as I have been doing my nonprofit tennisindia.org fanclub site for over 6 years now. The AITA has nothing much to do with the Indian Open though. As we at the TennisIndia fanclub are a party with no axes to grind (I am a university professor who does this strictly as a hobby and for fun), people from india generally help us out. I know Mahesh Bhupathi quite well, and I am sure I could ask him to find somebody to send me updates for my page if they don't have an official page.

Don't worry, I am sure we will have reasonably timely info out of India ..

Heard from Mahesh Bhupathi today that there will be a website that should be up by the Jan 15th (in a week).

No URL yet, but we will know soon.

Jire: In other words, I agree with you .. It sucked in a bad way!

rfs1999: As for Hyderabad WTA, I don't know if they will have live updates. Probably not, but we will find ouit scores within 2-3 hours at least, I am sure

No! As far as I know, this is a totally new event. Even the official WTA site does not have lists of last years winner -- they have such lists for all the other tournaments except this one... so it must be a new event.

Jay, it's good to learn of a website in the offing. I hope they also televise the matches live. I guess they will.. after all in India even the satellites and challengers are shown live!

yeah i know. but as i know wta tour is like mcdonald's franchise. so maybe actually somebody bought the tournement right from shanghai because shanghai has given up one and imported another high tier one from tokyo. as you can see from the schedule, there is one tokyo event missing (princess cup) and shanghai event got upgraded from previous tier iv to now tier ii. and the indian new event is most likely transferred from shanghai.
