Default Viña del Mar to lose its 250 tournament almost certainly

Quote:
Chile is very close to lose his ATP tournament. This happens because the organizers for 21 years, the Group Fillol, resigned from keep organising the tournament because of the lack of sponsors and support.
Quote:
"As a group, we decided not to be part of the ATP circuit next year. We're tired of risking our money. There is no interest in any company or TV channel to contribute in the championship. We're sad to take this decision, but without investors we couldn't keep on going, really" said Alvaro Fillol to El Mercurio.
Quote:
The Fillol brothers have already started negociations with local businessmen, in order to give the tournament to them before a foreign company takes it. "The completion of the tournament in 2015 will depend on local investors. Otherwise, other country will take our ATP. That depends on what Octagon (the enterprise who has the rights of the tournament) decides" said Fillol.

Sad, but the tournament really didn't look like much. I liked the place itself though.

Maybe move it to Valparaíso?

It was bound to happen. As soon as Massu and Gonzalez retired, I knew that this was going to happen

It will be almost the same and even worse, The municipality of Valparaiso don't even has the half of money and tourists.

Viña del Mar isn't the problem itself, not even close, it's the lack of sponsors and money.

I wonder what South American cities could get this tournament. I remember Montevideo used to have an ATP tournament in the 90's, but I guess it would end up in some Brazilian city. Florianapolis has a WTA tournament, maybe they would be interested in getting an ATP one as well...

Terrible calendar placement, one of the worst weeks during the year and I imagine you really need a higher ranked host country player or two available to get some audience/sponsors. Taking place in the already ghettoized Golden Swing during an weak era for Latin American tennis surely made things even worse for them.

Sad, wonder if the Latin American swing will dissolve eventually.

Shame that the #1 thing appeared to be TV broadcasting that held this up.

Default Re: Viña del Mar to lose its 250 tournament almost certainly

It will problably end up here in Brazil, Tennis is kind of booming here in the major cities, we have two tournaments in the South American swing, maybe in a few years time it will be the Brazilian swing. I know there was a lot of interest in a Master series or Master cup, but London being as popular as it is right now managed to keep it.

I would much rather Chile and all of the South American kep their tournamens and expanded and had one Master series to end it in Brazil. That would have been really cool and balanced as far as with South American.

I will always remember my travels in bus from Santiago to Viña

Because I don't think the issue will be solved.

Hopefully stays in South America though.

Chilean tennis doesn't deserve this... huge loss. The tournament will move to Quito most likely.

They only had a HD feed for the year that Nadal played and the other years the SD feed quality was fucking horrible. Sad news but not surprising.
