OK, give me a FUCKING break:fiery: These european directors are PLAINLY jealous that they did not think this up for their grand slams. And this BS that they are "shocked" whatever.... this series has been in discussion and planning since last summer! And the ATP IS the governing body for men's tennis, they are the ones to make the decision.......
Why would you criticize something that is only going to help more people watch and be aware of tennis???:confused::confused::rolleyes:

This was posted already btw;) it's just a bunch of crap and they felt the need to say something in retaliation, but it's not gonna harm the european fields for tournaments or anything like that

Well isn't all the good top tier players playing the North American tournaments anyway. Anyone who even plans on competing or contending for the US Open title would not be play a claycourt match in August.

some players who enjoy playing on clay did it last year, but only ATP has European tournaments during summer hardcourt stretch I think (Coria for one entered those European tournaments, and I'm sure Ferrero and Moya did so as well) but the majority of the top players play in North America during the hardcourt swing
