They shouldn't get either one of those until the Masters Cup leaves their country...I'm disappointed that it is staying there for years on end...the idea of moving it around every year was good.

New MS event. Should look like this:

H : Indian Wells, Miami, Canada, Stuttgart, Paris
C : Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Rome
G : London

Almost all parts of the world would be satisfied

GS NO WAY. GSs are based on tradition, you can't make them up just like that. MS has a good chance the way the world is going.

TMC is staying there for a good reason :money. I think the chinese pay alot of money just to have the master cup there and they are actually making money cos the chinese will go and see every match unlike in other places where only semi and final being sold out

no miami ??

replace barcelona with montecarlo, get rid of cincinnati and replace with beijing, and don't have a grass tms cause the grass court season is so short. have either paris or madrid, not both

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

A grass MS is essential for players to prepare for Wimbledon and is a traditional surface. Cincinnati has much more history than Miami and china already has Shnghai so they don't need Beijing. Bangkok could be a MS though.

I wanted to satisfy every big european country and I didn't get rid of Monte Carlo, although I should have, cause it's so old that they won't make it an "ordinary" tournament, probably ISG

but if I was to modify, it would look like this:

H : Indian Wells, Miami, Canada, Beijing, Paris (last two indoors)
C : Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Hamburg, Rome
G : London

miami is the biggest tournament outside the slams and it's in one of the very few strong tennis communities in the states
