What do you mean the USTA has always been involved with events in Canada, why would they be, TC doesn't need them.
Yes, Vancouver is a nice place indeed, what I meant was the field that's playing it is not in the top 2 CH's in NA.
Who cares about the quality of the field. The field doesn't make or break a tourney. Yes it helps, but we are talking accomodations. Players like going to tournaments that have quality facilities, not because of which players are attending. Dallas, Vancouver, Maui and Tiburon are probably the top 4 stops on the Pro Circuit per the players.
