about the southAmerican swing moving to december, we talked about it here :
ATP Calender, 2014 onwards
it looked on a good way as you will see.
As for Bogota replacing Los Angeles, if we agree that the safety concern is not a big concern, there are two arguments not to go there :
- the altitude
- the distance
I'm not sure they are that strong arguments, when in the meantime the Bogota organizer seems to have a lot of money
And Querrey, Isner, Anderson or Muller look to me as the typical players who played in Los Angeles.
The notion of "opportunist players", what others call "vulture", drives me crazy on this board, as it's so so exaggerated ... or diminished, as many players are like that, I can't understand why people really think that some players like Monaco (who actually didn't play that many tournaments previous years) are that more "opportunist" than others. I can't believe how many people speak about those supposed "vultures"
As for Monaco and claycourt players, Bogota will be the same week as Hamburg then surely they will go to play Hamburg.
