Memphis and Washington at least have been established on tour since the 70s, unlike hey lets give China all these big events that no one shows up to. The crowds at Shanghai and Beijing are like most of the posters on GM gloryhunters, your second sentence points that out

I thought Beijing got the crowds in unlike Shanghai which is empty for the whole week .I think the only time Shanghai got crowds was when Federer played in 2010 Thats not the case with Beijing which was almost full for a Berdych-Monfils match

Memphis or Washington you could easily die of boredom watching those two get my vote. Not watched Acapulco for a while but there have at least been some entertaining matches particulary when Stoner used to play there and like most of those latin american tournies no matter what the level the crowd is always into it.

Washington is not a bad tournament. The grounds and facilities are really nice, and the crowd is large. There are never empty stands. The field isn't good this year because of the Olympics.

The crowd at Beijing is pathetic. The only reason DC will never have a great field is its position in the calendar. It seems that the majority of the good players in the world are European, and it's too soon for many players to come over to North America for such a long time.

Memphis or DC to 250, these two tournament are by Field worse than Sunrise challenger (between IW and Miami)... Just shows how pathetic US tennis is at the moment...
Acapulco deserves to stay 500 it's a cool place with great weather and a solid venue...

A thread of yours that almost worked out Memphis is the answer. Utter joke of an event that doesn't even deserve future status. The stadium looks like a third world netball stadium.

Beijing, the crowd is just horrible, even for a final it's not even 3/4 full, even with big names playing.
