They should move the JP Morgan Chase Open to either Boston or Washington DC. I think one tournament is enough in LA.

I agree, California has ENOUGH tournements (one of the reasons why I think the championships tanked so badly last year.)

My picks

Vancouver, BC
Detroit MI (or Cleveland, OH)
Rio de Janerio, Brazil
Atlanta, GA
The Bahamas

Columbus would be a great pick. They have very nice facitlies and the people are very friendly.

Anywhere in Texas would be nice. We are holding the Tennis Masters in Houston the next two years, We now have a nice indoor complex, a women's event would be perfect.

I think there should be another tournament in Canada. Vancouver or Halifax would be great choices.

to organize a tournament you need money, money is provided by sponsors, if there are not sponsors there is not tournament, as simple as that.

Although it would be nice to have events in Africa or other areas with no tennis tournaments, it wouldn't be realistic.

In addition, you need infrastructure, you need a stadium, that's not cheap to build especially if you are going to use it for that only event, and it has to be maintaned, 365 days a year.

There are already too many tournaments in the US, if they add events they have to take others out.

Realisticaly, I think they should consider

Barcelona
Geneva
Montecarlo
Amsterdam
Prague

Buenos Aires would be a good choice, especially for a men's event since there are so many good argentinian male players, but with the current economic situation I don't think it's possible

Cairo already had an event and got cancelled

Mexico city would probably be a good choice
