Is the grass season too short? I say it is. The US Open and the Australian Open used to be played on grass. So many more tournaments used to be on grass. Players had longer careers and fewer injuries. Having more grass tournaments could bring greater variety back to the game. No one specializes in grass court play anymore because of the shrinkage. The argument that grass is hard/expensive to maintain forgets that most tournaments used to be on grass, so it's not like it's too difficult for pro tennis to be played on grass. The argument that players will need to train on grass as rec/college/juniors to be successful isn't accurate. The Williams sisters and countless others have won slams on grass despite growing up playing on hard courts. The argument that players don't like playing on grass isn't accurate. Most pros like playing on grass, although clay specialists tend to prefer clay. The real issue with hard courts is the damage to the body, particularly for WTA players. Clay is harder to master than grass for a hard court player. There should be more clay tournaments in the USA, and I don't see why more universities with big tennis programs don't have some clay courts. I've opened this as a poll.
