Tournament Name Change (ING Vysya Bank Hyderabad Open)

.. Well, talk about last minute changes! A Title sponsor came through on the LAST day before the matches started ..

It will be called the ING Vysya Bank Hyderabad Open.

It will stay as Hyderabad Open, as the state government is putting up money. The bank has not signed up for the long term, but they might do that later.

Well, they were close to cancelling the event after the state government sponsorship funds went down to just about $150K this time (it was some three or four times as much last year -- the state elections are coming up in a couple of months, hence the tighter wallets!). So I suppose there was really no apperance money to throw around. That would explain some of the withdrawals and their inability to land big names, I guess ...

Anyway, the tournament is here to say. Congratulations go to Mahesh Bhupathi and company for hanging in there and seeing it through the tough time this year. It will be fine from now on.
