Confirmed, by linesmen I met in Cherbourg and will meet there: The Tennis Club du Griffon, where it took place, has a new hardcourt, instead of clay, for doubles and a few singles before quarterfinals, and the main site is, from now on, the Salle "Steredenn" ("star" in local ancient language), five minutes walk from Griffon, already used for other sports, and far wider for audience, partners and sponsors, obviously hardcourt.
Not the entry list I expected : is it that poor , or am I getting hard to please : confused: ?
The list is not that bad at all. Please bear in mind that the only tournament that is held in Europe after Saint Brieuc is Mersin in Turkey. Meanwhile in America there are several CH events to choose like MAR25th Guadelupe, Colombia & Mexico, APR1th Mexico; Apr8th Mexico, Colombia, Brazil; APR15th Panama, Brazil and Mexico. APR22th Brazil.
In consecuence that makes sense to remain several weeks in Latin America and then probably travel somewhere else.
