War is declared. Good luck ITF. This seems pretty much exactly the same as the new Davis Cup, but with ranking points(and a better slot in the calendar). can't see how both will survive. Tennis Aus has positioned itself as the organisation most against the new Davis Cup, with a stake in both the Laver Cup and now this.Thanks.
Also ATP has announced a new tournament
So many questions for next years schedule now. I assume the 3 cities in Aus will be Sydney, Brisbane and Perth(?). Perhaps Melbourne, as Perth is too far away and the Hopman Cup is an ITF event, but they don't need any more tennis in Melbourne. long shots would be Canberra and Adelaide. Both hold Challenger tournaments and would love a share of this.
I wonder what will happen to the WTA tournaments? Will the ATP share the courts? Will the Sydney/Brisbane WTA tournaments still go ahead as stand alone? I reckon the Hopman Cup will struggle next year for men, which is a shame.
Questions questions questions.
