ok, thx guys for the info.

will be interesting to see how they schedule all this: if they don't change anything there could be 2 straight tournaments played in brazil...

and what about the surface ? sao paulo is an indoor clay event... what would be rio played on ?
(anything to do with olympic facilities, by the way ?)
