France has too many big tennis events

The french people have RG (a major), Monte Carlo Masters (basically France) and Paris Masters.

Compare this with Germany, far greater population and economic importance with only Hamburg Masters (which could be moved, and even if it wasn't it has very little importance since it comes right before the big french event).

What the top dogs need to do is move one of the French Masters and one of the American Masters to different countries. We need to expand the sport of tennis worldwide.

Why doesn't SOUTH AMERICA have a single big event? Asia has the Masters Cup (for now) and AO (still Asia), but SOUTH AMERICA, which produces a lot of tennis talent has nothing. Ridiculous....

Re: France has too many big tennis events

Asia TMC is not forever

Yeah I agree , but it is because South America is baout clay and main clay swing is in europe due to FO. And TMS in South America is hard to fit into schedule, because of GS it won't fit before Wimby , UsOpen or FO so it could be only before TMC but still many players would simply skip it , because noone wants to travel from Europe to South america and then two Europe + there are so many tournaments in Europe indoors. So Maybe it would fit when schedule will be redone, but still I don't think so. I think moving TMC to Sout America for 2-3 years would be good idea.

Germany has many tournaments , they have Halle, TMS and if I remember well 2 smaller tournaments.

Re: France has too many big tennis events

France, Canada and possibly USA have too many TMSs. I would move Paris to Shanghai, Montreal/Toronto to Buenos Aires and remove maybe Cincinatti.

8 Masters Series events is enough.

Re: France has too many big tennis events

removing Cincy and moving Canada is bad. Canada is not US so they have their own event the only ATP event so I'm fine with it Cincy is before UsOpen so moving it to other country or removing would be stupid.

I would

move Indian Wells to South America
keep Miami
keep Monte Carlo
keep Rome
remove Hamburg
make TMS on grass in Germany before Wimby
keep Canada
keep Cincy
keep Madrid
move TMS in Paris to Asia

it would give
2 TMS + Slam in USA
1 TMS in South America on slow hardcourt
1 TMS + slam in France
1 TMS in Italy
1 TMS in Germany
1 TMS in Canada
1 TMS in Spain
1 TMS + slam in Asia
Slam in England

Well, I did apply for the job but I guess the ATP decided Mr. Disney was too overqualified.

It's not like I would get rid of Canda completely. I just don't think it deserves Masters Series status.

We're getting a bit off topic here but, if you want to discuss the entire ATP schedule, try this thread:

This should be the ATP/ITF calendar, Player Strike, Schedule Problems etc etc

Re: France has too many big tennis events

Germany has a pretty big grass tournament, and two other good clay court tournaments that get good fields. No way are they given a raw deal as far as events go.

I was scared the OP would have an American flag next to his name. Imagine my sigh of relief when I saw that maple leaf.
