Curious what is to become of the venue post-Olympics.
The site looks WTA1000 worthy.
Ariake Coliseum (有明コロシアム, Ariake Koroshiamu) is an indoor sporting arena in Ariake Tennis Forest Park (有明テニスの森公園, Ariake Tenisu no Mori Kōen) located in Ariake, Kōtō, Tokyo, Japan. It has a capacity of 10,000 and is one of the few professional tennis venues which has a retractable roof.

The arena is used as the center court for the Japan Open and the Pan Pacific Open, held in Ariake Tennis Forest Park.

This venue will also host Road FC 24, instead of Ryogoku Kokugikan.

The venue will also host the tennis events for the 2020 Summer Olympics.

KLM blue + indoors = ATP finals style

I expect the no crowd problem will be solved via lighting (even more of the spots on the tennis court alone, the rest of the arena pitch dark, like in a theatre

Court colours are a bit like Melbourne. This is maybe an omen Pavly will get to the quarter finals win the title. :)

Most of the matches will be played during the day and with the roof open.

The old venue was a nice park full of trees. The venue will have lost its old charm but it indeed screams WTA 1000. I wonder if the WTA regret going all in on Wuhan just before Li retired as Osaka has been reaching the final in Tokyo since 2016.

This is where they play the WTA event. It was renovated for the Olympics. It was a 1000 for many years before being downgraded to 500 for the amazing Wuhan tournament.
Still Wuhan is not that bad as Tokyo still exists. But what they did to Miami when they moved it is total s…

One of the few times in 2 years that Barty and Osaka are healthy and in the same draw
Djokovic going for a golden calendar grand slam
An Olympics with no crowds. Why havent more people in Japan been vaccinated?
Wimbledon had big crowds, US has big crowds for every sport
