Gosh! Are they going to somewhere in the middle of China like Xining or Haerbin?

They should do a tournament in western Canada like Calgary or Victoria will be great. But please a big no to tournaments in USA and China.

Vancouver will be a perfect location. They tried to buy the Quebec license few years ago

Victoria has a lot of more space and and it will be less expensive from the organising perspective.

Re: Bombshell: RIP Quebec City MM 280, 1993-2018

Is there a reliable and official source that can confirm the Quebec cancellation?

I suppose the writing was on the wall when there were supposedly going to be 4 tournaments in one week post USO. Of course there was never real intention for that to happen.

Poor Quebec City - I remember the days Big Bad Brenda, Tara Snyder, J-Cap and Chanda Rubin took the title. It worked well then in the calendar alongside Philadelphia et al. Roadmap killed it in 2009, although it did last another 10 years nearly!

The only carpet tourney gone?! I've always loved Quebec City, I hope they somehow keep it, I don't know.

Re: Bombshell: RIP Quebec City MM 280, 1993-2018

they should move the US-Open completely into August, to make for space for Asien Tournaments after the USO

unbearable how dead the North-American Womens Tennis market is

(i know, Quebec was after USO - but the slot was always bad, and the NewHaven Tournament showed how bad the market is)

They probably thought that Bianca wasn't going to care to play there anyway and Genie is just a scrub now.

Re: Bombshell: RIP Quebec City MM 280, 1993-2018

What a shame, this was a nice little tournament. The time slot has really hurt it in the past few years though, not many top players want to be playing the week before or after a Grand Slam.

Here's some footage from 2015 when Baby Ostapenko played her first ever WTA final against former top 43 player (and Wertheim Wimbledon SF pick) Annika Beck.

She's actually a former top 37 player

Re: Bombshell: RIP Quebec City MM 280, 1993-2018

This tournament has so many memories for me.

Rumor is that they want to get a high level challenger in the winter. I'm guessing a tourney right after Midland? Wouls actually get a decent draw if it was a 125k/100k.

It feels like North American tennis keeps going in this direction. Sponsors aren't willing to go above the 125/100k level. There are so many American tournaments at this level right now.
