Bad desicion. Nobody is going to go there at that time of the year. Free week for hard court players. This tournament should had been scheduled for the South American swing.
the company from Bogota wanted to have a tournament for long but you need to buy an existing tournament "license" for that, and they bought the one from Los Angeles.
Not sure if they can change their date in the scheme of the ATP-calendar reform where there should be a december-southAmerican swing from what we heard.
