    SOUNDBITE: (English) Mahesh Bhupathi
    "No. I think we're hoping for the positive impact. I think things are changing worldwide, that's why IPL has been so successful. Nothing will ever change the four pillars of our sport, which are the four Grand Slams. I think the youth of this world are looking for something fun, innovative. I think this format brings the biggest stars in the world, creating something new and fresh for tennis. "

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Lleyton Hewitt
    "I'd say the majority will be known players. They're the players that people want to go out and see obviously. I think that's the biggest thing for the event as well, for pumping up tennis in the Asia area. Yeah, I have no doubt there's going to be a lot of quality players that are still real contenders at the Grand Slams, and I think it needs that."
