    Oh, they can do it, but profits for shareholders are most important to the business suits.

    I just wonder why it is more like this in tennis than in other sports...

    I read it will be the week after RG.

    Gutsy move by Stuttgart. I hope they get a decent field. Boris Becker, coming out of retirement? :)

    after a few days I got a reply from my e-mail to queens club..and it just said any changes to the scheduling of the 2015 queens tourney when Wimbledon moves will be announced on the website :confused:..

    its good that they replied..but I was hoping for a bit of clarity on the subject.

    Wimbledon is already being pushed back a week. If only the caly season could be brought forward a week it would be great to see, a week off after RG, 2 grass masters and a week off before wimby.Maybe even possible tohave a week inbetween the grass masters. But at least one should be present. Really they should ditch Shanghai, or ditch IW and make Shangha in an indoor court.

    French open 1 week earlier

    French open 1 week earlier would open things up nicely and create a proper grass court season

    Literally the last thing the tour needs is a Masters/ATP1000 event on grass.

    So you're saying they should either ditch a large, prestigious tournament in a burgeoning economy/massive new market for the sport, or get rid of an already established powerhouse event? Yeah, good luck with that.
