Grass season, even that is the shortest in season, for instance there is no M1000 in grass.

Flash O'Groove 02-05-2013 02:57 AM

the off season

After US Open.

The bit where they hit tennis balls

Too short grass season. We neef at least 1, preferably 2 masters 1000 tourneys on grass

The post-Australian Open period leading up to the Hardcourt Swing in the US.
With all due respect to the smaller tournaments, February is the most boring month of the whole season...

The hard-court and grass-court seasons, and the indoor hard-court season especially. Hopefully the indoor tournaments will eventually be phased out, just like carpet was. :-P

agree. Makes no sense. There are 4 clay Masters (including one that's really a 500 but pretends to be a 1000) and no Grass. :shock: Ridiculous and explains Nadal's 21 Masters titles (16 of which are on clay and 4 of which were at MC which wasn't even a mandatory event).

What's Nadal's record on carpet?

Clay court tennis. Shrink the season to what the grass court season is now.

estigma2001 02-05-2013 05:27 AM

The short Grass court season, i mean we need a M1000 on grass to be fair!

axel89 02-05-2013 05:50 AM

they are all pretty balanced out my favorite would be to usopen worst would be beg of season not much going on even after the aus

namelessone 02-05-2013 06:09 AM

The period between USO and WTF is usually pretty meh to me.

The rest is pretty good.

Gonzo_style 02-05-2013 06:10 AM

February of course

Cosmic_Colin 02-05-2013 10:49 AM

December, then February are the worst for obvious reasons.

August is quite a let-down after the grasscourt season, which is my favourite surface.

I'm not too bothered by hard vs clay. They're both generally slow anyway, on hard it's easier to see the ball but clay has more character.

For me, Grass > Indoor/Fast Hard> Clay > Slow Hard

always_crosscourt 02-05-2013 11:14 AM

Why are there two major US hardcourt runs?

Having said this, I like slow hardcourt (though the summer Toronto/Cincinnati duo are meant to be faster than the spring Indian Wells/Miami duo), so I'm not too bothered.

However, in the interest of fairness, it seems one of these should be scrapped for at least one grass Masters.

The tour is like 60% hardcourt, 39% clay, 1% grass.

SLD76 02-05-2013 11:15 AM

yeah fall hard court( WTF/WTAchampionships aside) and clay season , but only because of its length. After two tourneys im ready for the FO.
