If it's raining at 10.00am in the morning, all matches will be moved to an indoor facilty with 6 courts.

well, china is big :p
nah, i when a tournament fills in the file to ATP they have to give indoor facility as a second option

i overheard last year poznan challenger wrote about having the court while they didn't have :haha: and they had to rapidly find a solution, they quickly had to sign a deal with an owner of a different object :p

Groth hit almost 40 aces. I know he's a serve bot, but that makes it look like the indoor court wasn't clay imo.

Tough luck for Lim Y-K :sad: Would've been a great win after so many injuries this year.

According to the news in Chinese they've actually moved the location to the tennis courts of a hotel in Kunming, so this is no longer in Anning.

By the online pictures I've seen, it does seem to be hard courts.

Nathaliia
07-19-2012, 09:20 AM
i found in the rulebook a note that a surface can be changed after making agreements with ATP, but yeah, it probably means this tournament won't be back...

also, i know in some indoor tournaments (ITF) the surface is written "clay" when in fact they play on carpet, which just behaves like clay (or at least it's supposed to...)... tessenderloo in belgium is one for sure

CooCooCachoo
07-19-2012, 09:28 AM
If they have the money, the tournament will be back :shrug: The weather isn't exactly their fault. But it would make more sense, should the tournament return, to have it on a non-clay surface anyway.
