bali – tennis combo : Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions Nov 4-8, 2009

14 03 2009

Received a newsletter from a top asian tennis tournament, explaining the new format of the popular Bali tournament – Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions. I like the ‘Road to Bali’ concept involving the winners of 6 tournaments in Mexicio, USA & Europe.

Trivia : before Bali, the tournament was held in Surabaya, Indonesia for 4 years from 1994 to 1997. Then it was held in KUALA LUMPUR for 2 years in 1999 and 2000. Malaysia doesn’t seem keen on ‘owning’, branding & developing an annual repeat tournament, unlike Bali and Thailand with their Pattaya Tournament. Malaysia boleh only the big names – big time – hit & run one-off EXHIBITION matches eg Federer vs Sampras, Borg vs McEnroe.
