Questions

1-- What do the A and F after the players names on the commitment list stand for? Some have A, others F.

2-- Where is the updated entry list? By now we should know which of these players have decided to play in other events instead.

A and F are their member status of the WTA.

F means 'Full Member'
A menas 'Associate Member'

Not sure on all teh details, but you get free entry as a full member and voting privilages amongst other things.

As of an updated entry list, WTa or ITF won't publish them. That's teh job of the tournament website which doesnt exist. If u can find an address u could try e-mailing the tournament director.

I have a question:

What is the main reason for choosing Hyderabad over other Indian cities?

Was it because of its facilities?

I'd originally presumed it would be held somewhere like Mumbai, Delhi or Chennai...

Hyderabad has a nice tennis stadium, built for the recent national games.

After the big four cities, Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, etc are the next largest cities ..

The primary reason was the interest of the state government and the state chief minister in Andhra Pradesh. He is create a big hoopla about Hyderabad. It has become one of the more modern and cosmopolitan cities these days because of the IT industry base there (known as "Cyberabad" now). Anyway, I believe the state government came up with some financial incentives.

We all thought it would be at Bangalore at first, as Glibosport is based there (Bhupathi is from there), and were surprised that Hyderabad managed to pull off the coup and get the event there.

I don't know what I would call very advanced. As far as facilities are concerned, all the big six Indian cities have all the facilities you would want, in terms of world class five-star hotels, restaurants, shopping options, bars/discoes, etc [not as many as you would find in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore etc, of course, but they are all there if you have the money!]. The only thing Indian cities normally do not have are big skyscraper filled downtown areas, because these are old old cities. Hyderabad is probably the Indian city that has undergone most changes and the biggest facelift in the last 10 years or so, with a lot of construction - flyovers, street upgrades etc.

As far as the stadium facilities for tennis itself is concerned Hyderabad is among the top three (Chennai and Bangalore which have conducted ATP events being the other two), and has the most recently built tennis stadium.

By the way, it looks quite probable that the ATP Chennai event itself will become a rotating event from now on, moving among the three south Indian cities, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
