I'm seriously kinda sick of them already. I traveled to all those places with my friends during my 1 year time of studying Mandarin in Beijing in 2011
Well yea you've travelled enough cities in China, but there're more places to go to.

Tho still I can't agree with that "Europe in China" thing

Well maybe not Europe in China but I definitely felt European vibes during my visit to some areas of Tianjin, especially compared to its neighbor Beijing

I love Tianjin Here are some of the pictures I took with my phone and camera during my visit to Tianjin:

Kazan filed the application by accident. WTA never bothered to check. How professional.

Kazan Never Wanted WTA Champs - Russian Tennis Chief

MOSCOW, January 30 (R-Sport) - The Russian city of Kazan never intended to host this season's WTA tennis championships despite appearing on the initial list of candidates, Russian tennis chief Shamil Tarpishchev told R-Sport on Wednesday.
The capital of the Tatarstan republic was only axed from a four-city shortlist this week, leaving Monterrey, Singapore and China’s Tianjin as the candidates to replace Istanbul for the season-ending event.
“Nobody filed a proper application, neither (Tatarstan President Rustam) Minnikhanov, nor anybody else,” Tarpishchev said.

“The city sports committee filed an unauthorized application and by accident, so initially we didn’t even want this tournament.”
Moreover, Tarpishchev claimed there was no financial incentive to organize such event in Russia.
“It’s a waste of money, it’s better to buy a tournament for a long time than to spend money on a single event which doesn’t have a lot of meaning,” Tarpishchev said.

Resources will be channeled instead into the annual WTA/ATP Kremlin Cup in October, the only Russian stop on the tour, he added.
“We have Kremlin Cup and the women’s event there is strong. There’s no sense in wasting over $10 million to stage one tournament.”

The WTA Championships feature the top 8 singles players and top 8 doubles teams of the season competing for $4.9 million in prize money.
However, the 64-year-old Fed Cup and Davis Cup captain insisted Kazan had all the required facilities for staging a big tennis tournament as the home of the University Games this summer.
“There are all the necessary facilities in Kazan and it is ready to hold competitions of such caliber, but for now we don’t need this tournament.”
Lol at Tarpishev throwing some shade at WTA.

The fact that Kazan Russia filed an unauthorized application and by accident was pretty laughable and dumb too

Singapore would be a good option, further solidify the notion of an post-US Open Asian leg.

All these choices are mediocre. But I guess we live in an era where Qatar gets the World Cup.

Re: 2014 YEC host cities narrowed to 3 candidates. Where do you want it to be held?

I'm not sure which is the best way online to gauge how popular tennis is in a country but after looking up tennis in Google Trends, I was pleasantly surprised to see Singapore pop up in the Top 10 by Regional Interest. Maybe it won't be half bad?




Even this year so far, obviously most of the interest in tennis has been in Australia, but Singapore showed up 7th, and this is recent interest, so maybe it won't be as bad as we are expecting? That's of course, if Singapore gets it. If Singapore doesn't get it... .

I just hope they find a long-term solution, at least 5 years. It sucks how they always have to fit the fall schedule around the YEC all 3 years.
