You just confirmed the Big Four is Djoko, Fed, Muzz, and Ferru. Rankings after AO won't lie.

Ferrer is not good on any surface. It makes no difference on what surface the tournament is played as long as the weak field and the Mickey Mouse venue are there.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (5): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013, Geneva 2015, Sydney 2016 and Buenos Aires 2016 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 3 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

The clay courters have not lost out. The South American swing still contains 3 ATP 250s and an ATP 500. The only difference is that the 500 is in Rio instead of Acapulco.

Effectively Rio (new tournament) takes over from Acapulco, which in turn takes over from Memphis, which in turn takes over from San Jose (tournament scrapped).

Re: 2014 ATP Calendar Published

Are there any news about 2015 ? they will necessarily be quite important changes in the calendar as Wimbledon will move from one week.

Besides, so many bullshits said in this thread ...

1. Rio is an ATP500 and Memphis is an ATP250 not "because the ATP sanctioned Memphis and downgraded it" but because one or two years ago, IMG and a Brazilian Billionaire bought the licence for an ATP500 tournament from the guys who own San Jose and Memphis. Those guys decided to keep their remaining ATP250 tournament in Memphis : that had been known for more than one year.

2. Delray Beach is not affected : it's been changed to the week before Acapulco, and there's no "change for vultures" : the coherence of the European/northAmerican/southAmerican swings are exactly the same as now, except that there's one less tournament indoors, which unfortunately has been a long trend of the ATP Also the claycourt ATP500 is now one week earlier, and the NorthAmerican ATP500 is now in the same week as Dubai.

3. Bogota's case is nothing strange : we had also known for months that they had bought the licence from Los Angeles, which explains their position in the schedule ... already for this year 2013, actually.
