Did you guys prefer the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix to be held in the old venue in Filderstadt (1978-2005) or the new venue in Stuttgart (2006-onwards).

For me personally I liked it when the tournament was held in Filderstadt. I just liked the way the center court was set out, how the atmosphere of the crowd made it conforting for all the fans watching & just simply the colour of the courts.

The tournament held in Stuttgart now is great too but not as good as when it was held in Filderstadt - my opinion though. But the tournament in Stuttgart only has completed 1 year so I could change my mind later on you know.

Discuss.

I liked the Filderstadt tourny better, the setting was a lot more intimate ie, more closer to the players. Also the court surface was uber-fast, just my kind of surface to watch:D

From what I saw, I liked the changes in Stuttgart. But I haven't attended either venue, so I can't be sure.

I remember reading how the players loved Filderstadt.
Will this tournament be an A or B in 2009?
Is Porsche ready to spend more money?

Filderstadt seemed much faster for me, thus i would prefer it for the indoor season - but the tournament is one of the best thanks to near perfect organization and feel to it.

filderstadt, a lot more of an intimate atmosphere.
stuttgart will feel kinda empty and cold by comparison

Well, I had a hard time seeing the ball in all the matches I ever saw from Filderstadt. I liked the colors and setting and all, much brighter than Stuttgart, though.

I don't really like either, but I can see the ball better at Stuttgart, so I pick that.

Filderstadt.

It was always one of my favourite tournaments because the entry field was so prestigious. Look at the past multiple winners - Graf, Navratilova, Hingis, Davenport, Clijsters, etc.

Why do they have to keep moving the venues of these tournaments with an established history and a pantheon of great memories?

For what?

For What ?
Greed and financial considerations..
My Grandparents were born and raised in Germany, but I was born and raised in US, so I may be wrong as to the move from Filderstadt to Stuttgart, but here in the US, established history and great memories are quickly thrown out the window for personal greed and/or financial considerations ..
