Houston is the biggest tournament in the Solar System.

Ok, seriously, Valencia looks very promising. Houston doesn't look so bad. Estoril looks bad, but has a certain charm of course (including Davydenko).

Honestly, I voted for Houston. Obviously there won't be the best clay court tennis being played there, but I think there are some interesting matchups, especially considering the surface.

The three of them together wouldn't make a good tournament,:) but I think Estoril looks the most interesting, bit more variety.

All three of them have their interesting questions-to-be-answered I think... so no vote from me, here.

All of them are interesting, for different reasons. Valencia has the better field overall.

It's difficult for any of theese to be interesting when you can't see them.

Corollary: The most interesting tournament is the one you can see.

So far, it seems US fans will only see Houston on TC, 2SF & dbls F on Sat. & sgls F on Sun. Barely enough to sustain a tennis addiction.

Will there be any live streams of Estoril or Valencia? (Of course, from the US, betfair, etc. is not an option) Eurosport.uk, maybe? Schedule?

HeretiC, where are you?

Safin played good against Berdych in the Davis Cup, everything looked pretty good actually, so if this stays the same, then against Ferrero will be a great match perhaps, like many of their previous encounters.

I voted Houston, because of Peter Luczak. Go Looch!!

If I should have voted neutrally then Valencia looks the most open and interesting IMO.
