MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

There are tournaments looking to make changes for 2020.

But Tennis.Life is told that the requests are being deferred, as the ATP Board wants to formulate a long-term strategy.

So a plan that would return tennis to the San Diego area appears dead for now.

La Costa was the proposed site for a joint event before Indian Wells that relocated the Sao Paulo ATP event, and left Acapulco as ATP-only by relocating the WTA component.

ATP Tournament council members, we’re told, did not support the Sao Paulo move.

The WTA event ran there from 1984-2013. It was sold to Japan.
