The minor events are more important to up and comer players, players that have taken a break due to long time injuries and player that have fallen out of qualifying for 1,000 events. If you eliminate them, they would have to play in the Challenger level tournaments that a win gives them 50-75 points! They would never earn enough to get into the qualifying tournaments of the main draw 1000s!Get rid of 500 and 250 events and pnly have 6 m1000 events. Less is more.
Something like this ?While they’re at it, I’d be down for some changes in court colors as well. Make things spicy.
I think a red court would be nice. Perhaps some combination of a blue/green court with a tan surrounding as well.Something like this ?
On a serious note, additional grass Masters 1000 would make perfect sense.
It is the traditional surface...if Next Gen kids are not mastering it.....then It is not the fault of the surface but only points to the poor adaptation skills of Next GenMake one of the pre-AO tournaments in Australia/NZ a Masters tournament. Weird to go into the 1st Slam of the year with only small tournaments preceding it.
Why make the grass court season more important when most young players don’t ever play on grass and it has become the domain of only older players who slowly get used to movement on grass.
