San Jose losing ATP stop
The 123-year-old ATP World Tour event in San Jose will move to Memphis in 2014, with the Memphis tournament being sold and shifted to Rio de Janeiro.
The ATP Board of Directors approved the sale of the Memphis membership this week to IMX for operation of the 500-level event in Brazil. The ATP will determine the calendar and format for the events in 2014 and 2015 later this year.
The SAP Open began as the Pacific Coast Championships in Monterey in 1889 and has been played indoors recently at the home of the NHL's San Jose Sharks in February before dwindling crowds.
