I love Atlanta, but I don't know how the WTA held an event there in the middle of August. Or how the ATP is about to hold one in July. If the WTA ever wants to build up a green clay season again, Atlanta would be a nice place to play in April.

Boston as a warmup for the US Open would be very fun. Should New Haven not obtain sponsorship for next year, maybe that's a possibility.

I'd love to see a 10 tournament Tier I series (like the Masters Series) but with slightly less draconian mandatory lists; instead of being forced to play all 10, I'd say 8 must be on your record and beyond that they can count towards your "best other" events.

Indian Wells (Hard)
Miami (Hard)
Charleston (Green Clay)
Rome (Red Clay)
Monte Carlo (Red Clay)
Eastbourne (Grass)
Toronto/Montreal (Hard)
Chicago (Hard)
Tokyo (Ind. Hard)
Moscow (Ind. Carpet)

I don't know why Cincinnati gets a men's AND women's event when Chicago has more people, a long tennis tradition, and no event. I also wish we'd see a grass event in Ireland, a longer indoor season, a shorter spring hardcourt season, and a longer green clay season.

Definitely think of either extending the green clay season, or just cut it out all together and replace Charleston with Monte Carlo or something. It's just pointless t the moment, Charleston isn't mandatory or anything.

Something like that.

I'd put in the Asian hardcourt season after the AO though. So at the end of the year we can have all the indoor events (i.e. things like Paris Indoors can go to the end of the season)...and something like a 12-event Masters Series with minimum attendance at 9. And I'd do away with Rome since no one watches anyway, despite all its history; and do away with IW because of the ridiculous winds that can come up there and that playing 4 straight weeks is ridiculous.

I thought this to myself at work today! Spooky.

Indian Wells and Miami as Prmeier Mandatories - 1 needs to go, or they need to be moved apart. And the AO should be over easter, not in January.

I would have Rome as a Premier Manadtory and not Premier 5. Madrid is such a slut bag tournament, and needs to go!

There should be at least 1 Premier Mandatory or Premier 5 grass tournament.

So at the end of the year we can have all the indoor events (i.e. things like Paris Indoors can go to the end of the season)...and something like a 12-event Masters Series with minimum attendance at 9. And I'd do away with Rome since no one watches anyway, despite all its history; and do away with IW because of the ridiculous winds that can come up there and that playing 4 straight weeks is ridiculous.

I hadn't even thought of moving around the Asian circuit. That's a smart idea, so that the Aussie would ACTUALLY be "the big event" for the Asian-Pacific series.

I don't like having IW and Miami be 1.5 weeks each. It's a waste. Cut out the 96-player draw, reduce them to 1 week events, we get two extra off-season weeks for the players.

OsloErik
Jun 14th, 2010, 11:28 PM
If they did a proper green-clay season, I'd go with four weeks of events, the last one overlapping with the kick-off to red-clay season. Of course, I'd also shorten Miami and Indian Wells to real tournament length, and we've suddenly got half a month to play with.

Dallas and Amelia Island, green clay
Ponte Vedra Beach and Houston, Green Clay
Charleston (TIER I)
Atlanta (overlap with Marbella and Fes)
-some small clay event, like Estoril-
Monte Carlo (TIER I)
-two weeks of smaller clay events, like Barcelona and Warsaw-
Rome (TIER I)

# We advise you to exercise caution in Fiji due to the unresolved political situation and deterioration in the rule of law following the December 2006 military coup. We advise you to exercise a high degree of caution in Suva because of the prevalence of crime and potential for civil unrest.
# Cases of typhoid have recently been reported in Suva and throughout the country. For more information see Health Issues below.
# Pay close attention to your personal security and monitor international media for information about possible new safety or security risks.
# In April 2009 Fiji’s Constitution was abrogated. Fiji is currently ruled by decree, including a set of Public Emergency Regulations, giving the police and military extensive powers. The protections ordinarily afforded by the rule of law have been undermined, which has affected the interests and welfare of Australians in some instances.
# In November 2009, the Fiji Interim Government expelled the Australian High Commissioner. The Australian High Commission in Suva continues to operate normally.
# You should avoid demonstrations, street rallies and public gatherings.
# There have been reports of increases in violent crime. Expatriates and tourists have been targeted, particularly in Suva. You should maintain a high degree of personal security awareness.
