Heineken Open Shanghai moves to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

The 2005 calendar will soon be updated with a new ATP international series host city Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The existing Ho Chi Minh challenger will go to Shanghai. Both events are sponsored by Heineken. Shanghai will host the TMC starting next year with Heineken returns too as the main supporter. As a result they can't sponsor two ATP events in the same city. Good to see some changes in the Asian area.

Re: Heineken Open Shanghai moves to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

This is sad I know we can't sponsor two ATP events, but Heineken has companied us for 6 years. Now it's time to say goodbye. maybe I can't watch Jiri playing here any more I will miss Heineken Open forever.

and congrats to Vietnam, same good luck to the players who will be there next year.

Re: Heineken Open Shanghai moves to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Kiss goodbye Heineken Shanghai Open!

Still good that the challenger will be moved here. I wonder if there will be any change to the challengers calendar...the Ho Chi Minh Challenger was in February, if it's moved to Shanghai in the same week 2005, it shall be played indoor.

What to believe in, it's impossible to say?
What to believe in when they change your name, wash your brain, play the game again, yeah, yeah, yeah...

It is good for Vietnamese tennis, maybe their tennis scene will improve due to this tournament.
Too bad for Shanghai, but at least you get a better tournament with bigger names now.

Actually i more miss the smaller names i miss the days when i watched those not famous boys playing and the efforts they made to win every match.
Jiri and Pala how i hope them to win once.
Sure we can appreciate more big names and big matches in TMC, but that's a totally different feeling. Seems TMC is like a big attractive lover, but Heineken is more like the Mother, who can't be replaced by anyone else.

Re: Heineken Open Shanghai moves to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Well, they can't be any worse than those guys who get wild cards to Dubai every year...what facility are they going to be having this tournament at?
