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.
"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.

"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.
