I'm relieved to know that the people who cover the sport don't expect it to move. There's no reason Cincy and Charleston can't have big events. I just can't see the point of buying the tournament only to shut it down, as if it's competition and not complementary to Charleston. And the tours would have to approve this. If Ellison couldn't buy a relocation, it's bodes well for Cincy... I'm not sure where this idea that Navarro is anti-Cincy is coming from, anyway.





From another insider I know.

And the greediest people already have plenty. Constantly amazed by how driven people are by money once they have more than enough.

It is weird because I have been shown a totally different view of that. Both of my grandparents are pretty wealthy and they didn't come from a lot of money. My mom & dad(when living) do pretty well, but they have always told me and my brothers that we need to work for what we want. Now I have been helped a lot with my tennis stuff by my grandparents because that is something I could really never afford at my age, but for regular things I still have to do chores and things. My family also gives and works for charities and that is why I have always loved to volunteer with kids learning tennis. I want to give back to others. That is the way people should be I think.

I'm sure it's not everyone. :) Glad you had good examples. I'm talking about the obscenely wealthy.

At a point it becomes just a p!ssing contest, where it's not about accumulating money at all - because they have more than enough to live several lifetimes in luxury... It becomes about status and popularity...

We live in an increasingly superficial world, where a person's worth and value is measured in how many 'likes', 'followers', 'views', etc. one has... and in how much money one has.
We see it in team sports constantly - these players are making 2, 3, 5, 10 Million dollars per year - and they always want more, just to 'prove' (superficially) that they are 'better than' another player who makes 14 dollars less per season.

Meanwhile, there are people living without adequate food or housing - not only in 'third world countries', but also here in North America.
It's absolutely sickening.

We certainly are not obscenely wealthy. Yep, I have great examples.

It's not really about money, that's only a side thing. It's about power and humans have desired power above all else since the stone age. If you don't believe me read some more history about ancient nobles, kings, conquerors etc.

Oh I have read about them in my History books.

Check you calendar, Aces. If Rafa is doing this as a tune up for the USO, it might not work...
