Monterrey: Svitolina, Pavlyuchenkova, Fernandez (26th February - 6th March or 5th March to 13th March; they did specify if ATP challenger tournament is first or WTA)
Charleston: Keys, Stephens, Badosa, Bencic, Fernandez (2nd April - 10th April)

I always liked the Auckland tournament. Too bad NZ is so strict with their covid rules.
The rules have made sure that Covid isn't killing people here like it is everywhere else. Even with our ongoing Delta outbreak there have only been 40 deaths since the start of the pandemic (12 or 13 in this outbreak).

2022's tournament may be cancelled but, unless something drastically awful happens in the next year, we'll be back with bells on in 2023.

It would have been a good balance if Sydney had one of the 2 Melbourne, Week 1, WTA250s,
running alongside the the ATP cup.
So spectators could see ATP and WTA together in Week 1 & 2 in all three cities.
Maybe not enough room at Homebush though.

Probably the same as this year where players will just enter one 'Melbourne' event and the list will be split afterwards.
Yes, probably they will the do the same this year. Now I don't remember but what happens if two players plan to play doubles together and each end up in different tournaments once they split the list?

They could play doubles in different tournaments. It seems more logical to just have one 64 player draw though instead of two 32 ones. I thought the whole thing was very confusing last year; they didn't even separate the different tournaments into different courts so I could never remember who was in which one.

2 32-player draw is better in terms of prize money and points earned. Those 64 draws are horrible.

They have Madrid as a one-week event with a Sunday start this year, so hopefully they don’t try to force women to have a Thursday start for a two week event.

ATP have released their first half today
So many playing opportunities for ATP players between the Australian Open and Indian Wells, with a lot of different tournaments in Europe, the Middle East, North America and South America. That's how you grow the sport around the world and bring pro tennis to multiple countries and continents.
Let's hope that the WTA will have more events than just Doha, Dubai, St. Petersburg, Lyon and Monterrey.
