although there is no date confirmed at the website, in a Brazilian tennis magazine there is an advertisement of Petrobras Cup which announces the Tournament of Champions to happen from 04th to 08th November, however it was released before Santiago being confirmed as the host city (they have the Brazilian flag next to the date)

The 2006 edition was played on hardcourt, not on clay. SteveG is wrong.

Btw, if I'm not mistaken there was an edition in 2005 sponsored by Petrobras (Guga d. Puerta in the final), but it didn't have this actual format with the winners of the Copa Petrobras series.

right, I will fix it and tell him about the correction. I can recall it was played on hard.

Is there a chance it was played in 2005, maybe in Săo Paulo (Ibirapuera)? Or am I messing it with another exhibition? I only could find small South American exhibitions (with 4 players) after the end of the season in 2005.

yep, in Rio de Janeiro, at SteveG it has the weird name "Desafio de Tęnis e Handebol" :lol:

I think the 100K is the total prize money available to all the players.
I like both players so whomever wins let's hope it is a good fight for the crowd. :yeah:
