The grass season is too long!

#1
Three days into the grass season and i'm already bored from all these Rosmalens, Nothingams and other small town tournaments that are going around. :mad:
Next 2 weeks basically is the same story really, with the sole exception of one semi notable tournament, that's Queens. The period from the RG to WB is too long imo. Lots of servebot filled small tournaments, and nothing important going in between. So why not cut short this period by at least a week. ATP should schedule Queens in the week straight after RG, the second week should be reserved for all these smaller tournaments like Rosmalen and Eastbourne, and then just get on with the Wimbledon dammit.
What do you think?:unsure:

When your boy is regularly exiting R1 or so of course it is a long season. Be patient your boy should be extra motivated to go further this year and then receive his mandatory beatdown by novak

Grass season would be perfect if there was a masters.

ATP 500 followed by masters 1000 followed by Wimbledon.
As it stands now, there is no grass season to speak of.
Seems that ATP doesn't give a flying f**k about the surface either. Otherwise why so reluctant about investing in a ATP Masters 1000 on the surface, or why so long to promote historical tournament like Queens from 250 to 500!?;):unsure:

Only a true ******* would complain about the grass season being too long when the clay season is 3 times longer than the grass... :rolleyes:

Yeah would LOVE a Masters! Hard to get into pre Wimbledon tournaments as players are scattered and some like Rafa/Nole don’t even play....Maybe we could get rid of some of the end of season tournaments and make grass longer....

Do you think Nadal, Djokovic are liars ?
Yes or No ?

Because I can post millions of quote from both of them saying winning Wimbledon was the biggest dream.

From a young Rafa around 2004 shyly talking about how he wants to win WB the most to the Rafa of 2007 crying in locker room thinking he will never win it , to the one that still calls 2008 WB victory his most emotional ever.



While all slams are objectively equal, that is not the present thought process of media AND the players born in 80s.
Grass still holds the most popular and most well respected tennis tournaments.




If you don't like the grass season, it is your problem.The key word is "you" WB finals are (I can post a link) essentially the most watched tennis match worldwide unless the other slams have a very special and big final. With around 25 millions worldwide watching.

So the thing is if you don't like grass tennis, great. Don't project your feelings on players and much greater audience alike.

Very good point re clay tournaments not being prominent enough.

As a way of remedying this matter, I propose that Madrid, Rome, and the French Open should be switched to grass courts.
Oh don’t forget the WTF as well. That should be indoor grass.

No, this isn’t purely to benefit Federer at all. It’s just to bring about more balance.
