he had made an offer but from the link now it seems it's official that it's the Bogota guy who got it in the end.

I had read in a Swiss article that that guy (who is also responsible for Federer's exho match with Tsonga in Bogota) had tried to get one ATP tournament for very long, but obviously would prefer another date.

I read that the 9600 tickets for the Fed-Tsonga exho had been sold in 3 hours

In that article I read, they say that SouthAmerica is crazy about tennis like nowhere else, they say that in Argentina even housewives are experts about tennis

It's normal that tournaments from the USA move there in these conditions, as the Americans seem to be disinterested in tennis.

useless old guy
