Pretty much the same players played Houston 2003 and Shanghai 2002, and word is they found Shanghai a 100 times better :)

So at least on the players' part it's all good!
(Besides, there are about 253647 other tournaments on US soil)

I went to Shanghai in 2002 and it was so fabulous. I really enjoyed it. Although I don't know maybe Houston was better but I for one am glad its in China because its closer to Australia, so less time difference watching on TV and since i'm fasinated with China just another reason to go there.

I would like it to be at a different location every year. Kind of like the final of the Champions League in europe or the Super Bowl in the US and to a lesser extent, the Olympics.

No kidding. They'll at least fill up a couple player boxes with the population in China ;D

Seriously, if the event completely sells out sometime in advance, I will not be surprised.

Actually, no. It hasn't "always" been two years". Before Houston it was "always" 1 year. And before that it was "always" at one venue for quite some time, if I'm not mistaken.

Don't you know USA rules ;) Since it was 2 years in Houston, so it MUST BE 2 years. Not 3 years, not 1 year.

Um, isn't tennis REALLY big in Aisa though? I know the WTA is getting bigger and bigger there, so I'm assuming it's the same for tennis in general, no matter if its the men or the women.

That is correct, it's the big growth market for both tours.

Yesh Naldo it is. But with their population... just about anything would be considered big there.

haha. seriously though. tennis is HUGE in china but down south, it's kinda quiet here in SEA though thailand's an exception of course. i'm not too sure about the situation in india but i should think it's quite huge too!

so u've got china and india two of the most populous countries in the world and yeah...i'd say it's pretty huge :p

however, they should change surface every year... ;)

I'd rather have it in China than in the US once more. There are enough events there, and the American people aren't particularly loving the game of tennis. In China, they do. Plus it's one of the fastest, if not the fastest, rising economies and it is only smart to take advantage of that. They are building a huge stadium for it too, so it is good to take advantage of the new infrastructure there.

shanghai is a fantastic city... a great venue, i could/might go to china to watch it... but yeah, it may be too expensive

a lot of asians (who can afford it... probably japanese, koreans) and australians could watch, organizers just don't decide out of the blue to hold an event somewhere,

of course, there probably has been a feasibility study if holding it in china would be profitable and advantageous or not...

why call china "freakin' china" like it was situated in the middle of the pacific ocean or something? china is a humongous country which, unfortunately for you, is thousands of miles away... i live here in asia and i dont say freakin LA or freakin' Canada or something

open up your mind, widen your horizons, the world is not centered on the US
