Oh, it's being downgraded. I thought the men's event was being eliminated completely. If that's the case, I honestly think they can still get pretty good fields. There's always going to be the players who don't want to play the pre-Indian Wells/Miami clay court events in Mexico and South America.
True, some of those players will just play indoors over in Europe. But, since Memphis is relatively close in time to IW and Miami, and players have to be over here anyway, I think they'll do okay. Plus, players seem to like the event.
