20 years of tennis in Tashkent for nothing. Shocking news.

Re: WTA 2020 calendar news: Adelaide replaces Sydney and Lyon replaces Tashkent

It'll be a shame for a country like Uzbekistan to lose it's only event, but I always did wonder why France put on significantly fewer events than it's fellow Grand Slam countries, especially when you consider the amount of ATP events it hosts.

Adelaide is the best Australian City.. They should also do an WTA 125k on Kangaroo Island!

Rad-alaide! The city of churches if I'm not mistaken. I went there once I think, was very drunk, lots of winetastings... Can't seem to recall too much about the city unfortunately :/

Sad about Sydney but maybe it will be a little cooler in Adelaide during this early part of the month? Does anyone know what venue it will be played at?

I hope Lyon can step up with some outfits for the players to compensate the loss of Tashkent

It's just as hot as Melbourne but less humid than Sydney. I'd say Adelaide conditions (dry heat) are closer to Melbourne than Sydney.

What I like is that the tennis centre is actually right next to the city centre like how the Australian Open is, unlike Sydney where it's played over an hour from downtown Sydney.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?
