... and most pros just play the last 2 weeks? This is crazy. Has it always been like this? So basically most players havent had competitive tennis in the past month?

Isn't it the same for the clay/grass change over

US Open Series started in Indy, then LA, then DC, so it's been 3 weeks now. Just some guys either choose to play the post Wimby CC tourneys (Davydenko, Ferrer, Mathieu, Simon to name a few) or rest up for the 2 MS events before the USO (Fed, Nadal, Murray, Djokovic)

There are 6 pre USO HC tourneys-Indy, LA, DC, Canada, Cincy, and New Haven. Just that most guys choose to only play the 2 MS events.
