Rio will be clay and Acapulco will change to hard court to preserve the surfaces. Delray and Memphis will both be moved a week back to allow Acapulco to be become the finale of this pre-IW/Miami NA hardcourt swing. Rio takes Acapulco's place as the 500 event of the Golden Swing.
So essentially, San Jose becomes Memphis, Memphis becomes Acapulco, and Acapulco becomes Rio.
