Carlsbad joint-event plan looks dead

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.
