Wow....kind of boring.....no changes except for Quebec.

Was hoping they would add an indoor event at the end of the year in USA.

No new events either.

After all the talk about Hamburg going there was an article stating that it would still be around in 2003.

2004 will be a different story when there will be 2 10 day mixed clay tournaments. Hamburg, Rome, Monaco and Madrid are the contenders.

I would hope for Rome and Monaco......

Rome because it is the best clay event and Monaco because it's new ;)

Joshua, we have a new event in India :rolleyes: Also, some tournaments moved such as Casablanca (July to April), Porto (April to July), and few other events...

New event in India:)

Interesting that Quebec has moved!

They should have a tier 2 in the USA before the Chase champs!

Maybe in Chicargo?

I wish they would have an event in Chicago, they used to and I was young, but I remeber going once, I mean it's not like we get that much of a chance to see really good tennis around here.

BTW - I think it's a bad idea cause Top players haven't enough preparing for playing on clay at first tournament in Tier I event!!

Yes, Chicago needs an event to come back - even a Tier III would be great. It's the biggest city in the world that's without a tennis event - mens or womens.

THe only new tournament is that tier V in India. I want a tournament in Buenos Aires, like it used to be in the 80's.

The French Community Championships during Rome :mad: I don't think Kim and Justine will come there!!!

OMG!!!

they gone back to how it was in the 80's and early 90's

Hilton Head (now Charleston) was always before Amelia Island.
FCC is only a Tier IV so i doubt Justine/Kim would have played there anyway unless they dropped out of sat top 15

I don't know if the schedule is correct in other dates, but the HAMBURG tournament definitely does not exist any more, it's moved to some Arabian emirate, forgot which one.

Regards from Germany.
