Singapore is about to “lose” the WTA Finals, but he is bidding for something (probably) more important: The ATP World Tour Finals.

The City-State launched an ambitious bid to have the best tennis players in the world (ATP) to compete for the Season’s Finale.

Sport Singapore, the Singapore Tourism Board, and Sports Hub confirmed this week that they have placed a bid to host the prestigious event from 2021.

Will the event be hosted in the 55,000-capacity National Stadium?

According to rumors, the event could be hosted in the gigantic 55,000-capacity National Stadium that would be much bigger than the Singapore Indoor Stadium, which hosted the WTA Finals (12,000 seats).

The communicate from Singapore

SportSG, STB and Sports Hub released the following

“This is part of our continued efforts to look out for suitable world-class events that can inspire the enjoyment of sport here, and add to our vibrancy and attractiveness as a sport and lifestyle destination.

The Singapore Sports Hub is a world-class venue and choice for such events.”

Why the International tender

The ATP’s executive chairman and president Chris Kermode announced back in August that

“The tournament’s popularity and stature have reached unprecedented heights in London, which has attracted significant interest from potential future host cities over the years.

We feel the time is right to undertake this international tender process as we look to secure the event’s future beyond 2020.”

This is going to be interesting.

For Tennis Tonic, I mostly take care of the sections that we call Quick Buzz and Videos that is about brief stories, videos or posts about the top Tennis Players. My favorite players are Federer and Nadal even if I am aware that they are at the end of their career. Following the like of Shapovalov, Tsitsipas, and Coric and on the WTA side I am intrigued by Naomi Osaka, Dayana Yastremska, Amanda Anisimova, and Olga Danilovic. I am always hopeful that Genie Bouchard will find her way back.

London has its charisma, but if I could choose a city outside Europe and in Asia I would go to either Tokyo or Singapore.
