I don't know what to think about it. On the one hand, China will probably have good attendance (at least the men's masters had last year), on the other hand I think it's not quite fair for the fans. Of course, there are also fans of certain players in China. But it's a fact that most players of the top eight are from USA or Europe. And I don't see any asian girl coming into the top eight next year.

Didnt Sugiyama just qualify for the end of year champs, last time i looked she was asian. Yeah she was there cos of withdrawls but yu get them most years. But i get what yu are saying, i think china is a bit out of the way and not really a tennis country. They should bring it to the UK, we love tennis!!

its not gonna be a permanent move
Shanghai Masters last yr was a sell-out and we didnt see any Asians in the field.
they should move it around every yr and PUBLICISE it as the ATP do.

I see so many people going on about how doing x or y is "good business"... advertising certain players, seeing players a certain way, etc etc etc, all about the money.
If they think that moving it to China will bring in more money than LA, then why not?
