Given that it's at altitude and often has a bit of smog,Petra would probably do awfully there,so Caro is my best bet for a memorable time as a visitor.If she doesn't have a shot as a Top 8 seed,then I probably won't even try to go.

It's a long hike down there for me and the traffic is horrible in the city,but I'm sure the organizers would plan around that.We definitely have the resources there,and there would be plenty of spots of cultural interest for the players.However,we have a fairly poor legacy in tennis,so we'd likely need major marquee names like the WS,Sharapova and,to a lesser extent,Vika,to attract ideal,healthy crowds.Your post is the first I've heard of this,and I'll add that,because of the difficulty breathing at altitude,Caro might have an advantage,stamina-wise,in longer matches

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world
