It would seem like a good time to add another event in Canada, particularly on the west coast. Vancouver really got into the Davis Cup. With Canada actually having a decent tennis program right, having a smaller tournament gives some of the lesser Canadian guys an opportunity, while as long as Raonic is on tour, he'd probably support the tournament and give it a draw.
Some of the point appropriations are being shifted around and this is becoming a clay Rio 500. I think Memphis becomes a 250 to compensate and Acapulco will become a hardcourt event.

Vancouver would be a good place for a 250.
