Re: Bogota to replace the Los Angeles tournament
Another factor is that above 1200m or so altitude balls come into play, which doesn't help anyone who plans to play all the following weeks. An alternative is using a type 3 ball (ie the larger category of balls), which have been legal for a decade but aren't used anywhere else.
Going to be amusingly quick up there if they don't, a nice difference from the rest of the tour. I hope Isner plays it once, his second serve would jump like a gazelle.
Presumably a nice + for Bogota in terms of attracting crowds is having Falla/Giraldo, and perhaps Robert Farah and Alejandro Gonzalez in a year or two.
