Really cool to have a grass court tournament outside of the traditional countries that host them.
How great must it be to stay at that hotel and watch tennis every day during your holiday. You could just go for a swim in between matches!

Still disgusting that ATP never had a grass M1000.

Great Perfect destination for tourists as well, mostly Germans and Serbians. Antalya will be an amazing grass tournament in Turkey with its perfect coast and beaches in the heat of summer.

Wonderful news. Hope it will be a success.

Not a place you would associate with Grass Courts but this is great and unique.

Maybe with more 250s now Queens can get an upgrade. It's not like they need to get rid of any of the other Masters to make a slot. Just upgrade and make it non-mandatory like Monte Carlo, ten Masters events would be fine (in the past I think there were up to thirteen?).

Re: Antalya Set To Join ATP World Tour From 2017

Queens should be upgraded to 1000.
Some clay or HC masters could be done away with.

Imagine how many more masters he would have if there were any grass masters?
He is grass GOAT and even at 35 his tennis on grass is still top-notch.

Imagine if how many GS would he have if Wimbledon wasn't such a historic event and they'd remove it at roughly the same time as carpet.

I do agree completely with your last sentence.

Tennis on grass is good. More grass tournaments is better.
