I imagine sooner or later Charleston will reach a point where they will either fold as a tournament or have to change their surface to red clay. It just has a horrendous spot on the calendar, I mean who is going to want to play on green clay, a surface that only this event is played on, on the back of a long month in Indian Wells and Miami, and then leads to nothing. The candidates is basically Americans or people who are desperate for form/points. I would imagine Charleston has some decision making to do after the Williams' retire.

Stuttgart installed red clay for the same reason, it gives them the best chance of attracting top players.
When you post 'don't want to',do you mean apathy??That would be par for the course for a culture/country that is utterly collapsing and will be almost irrelevant,in terms of world power,50 years from now.Well,I'm certainly not gonna wish injury even on one of Caro's 'enemies'(i.e.,a player who's been hostile towards her,for lack of a better term to use).

However,I'd LOVE to see one of the Americans' top ATPers(whoever the fuck that might be)get an achilles tendon tear on the green clay...and then loudly blame the Charleston surface THAT would be justice

When the Lizards play their Trump card, humanity suffers

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

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