Mumbai R1: Matsui d. Singh 64 76, worst ATP match of the year? Mumbai worst tourney?

This deserves a mention, two players ranked outside the Top 500 playing an ATP level match.

Mumbai is really a big mess with all the bad weather, last year they had the Monday final, this year the qualifying was completed on late Tuesday afternoon (new record?). The scheduling is also bad, matches are starting after midnight, the outer courts aren't used enough, etc. Another annoying thing is the scoreboard which only works in patches

All in all, this seems to be the worst organized event of the year that needs to be moved somewhere else (or held at another time).

Who are these players? Is this the same tournament that Hewitt went to? How much did they pay him?!

Toshihide Matsui (JPN), age 29, rank 536
Navdeep Singh (IND), age 21, rank 817

yes, Gasquet and Hewitt are the top seeds there

This tournament started life in Shanghai, was moved to Ho Chi Minh City for one year then moved to Mumbai. I wonder where it will go next.

MAY ALL BEINGS BE HAPPY!!

shanghai and ho chi minh city got worser fields than mumbai anyway.
I think this tourny should move to kolkata. (netaji indoor stadium where wta tourny is held.)
Mumbai get a lot of rain this season and players aren't willing to risk the next tournament.

There are indoor stadiums im mumbai but Globosport certainly choose not using any of those.

This is no worse a match-up then Augustin Gensse vs. James Ward at Valencia.
