Relocation

The tournament will be moved to Montpellier, apparently. They're still waiting for the consent of the ATP, but it seems really sure. It will take place in the new Arena (9000 seats, to be finished in September). 575 250 € prize money. The tournament director will be Dominguez.

Only the 4th event in the South of France ^^ - after Marseille, Nice, Monte-Carlo.

Well, it's a nice part of the world.

On a more serious note: Why this inflation in France? There should be a tournament in the Czech Republic. Good players and a country with quite some trennis tradition.

Re: Relocation

Maybe the ATP won't agree, it seems crazy to have so many events in the same area.
I'd be all for the Czech Republic too!

Montpellier To Host ATP World Tour 250 Event
Montpellier, France
by ATP Staff
04.05.2010

Montpellier, one of the fastest-growing cities in France over the past 25 years, will host an ATP World Tour 250 tennis tournament for the first time in late October of this year. The indoor hard court event, which has relocated from Lyon, will be played in a new multi-purpose venue called the ARENA, which has a total capacity of 14,000 and seating for 7,500 during the tournament. The stadium will be completed by September, ahead of the tournament, which will be staged 25 October to 31 October.

Just 10 kilometres from the Mediterranean coast in the country’s south, Montpellier is the eighth-biggest city in France with a metropolitan population of more than 500,000.

ATP CEO, Europe, Laurent Delanney, said: “The ATP World Tour showcases the world's best players in the most beautiful cities and venues around the world. We are delighted that one of our tournaments now will be played in the magnificent ARENA stadium in Montpellier. We also would like to thank the city of Lyon for its role in hosting this important event on the indoor circuit since 1987.”

Patrice Dominguez, former French No. 1 and National Technical Director at the French Tennis Federation, who has directed tournaments in Monte-Carlo, Toulouse and Metz, will be the Tournament Director in Montpellier.
