There are big countries without A tournament, or countries like Argentina who give the sport so many great players with just a bitchy 250. Countries like China who never gave any good tennis player to the world have a MS1000.
Come on, don't complain dude! You have so many good tournaments across your country, and a big grass arena.

Money talks.

aussies are running on borrowed time/money. the kia open should obviously be moved to serbia in recognition of djokovic's GOAT legacy

why isn't there an ATP tournament in BC

repeat 10 times except replace BC each time with the following

Alberta
Saskatchewan
Manitoba
New Brunswick
Nova Scotia
PEI
Newfoundland & Labrador
Yukon
NorthWest territories
Nunavut

be happy Australia has as many tournaments as it has, it could be worse;)

Fair point, but it takes about 4.5 hours to travel to Sydney, and 5.5 to Melbourne.

It isn't the biggest place, but it is the capital city, and more than 50% of us live here.

I assume you mean big by area then because if more than 50% of you live there then it has to be the biggest by population lol:p

Lol, true. 54% of the population live here, so yes, that is correct, but in area, it takes up 0.008%.
