Re: The tour calendar sucks!
Back before the game was as physical as it is now and players were able to play a lot more often, having green clay and carpet seasons was wonderful for fans. In fact, if you look at tennis history on the WTA side, some of the most successful, pioneering, and fan friendly tournaments were on green clay and carpet. Hilton Head (now Charleston which is still great) as well as Amelia Island were beautifully run tournaments that were always packed with stars and good matches.
And I think there will be plenty of people who would be willing to extol the success of the Carpet tournaments which are now a relic.
But doesn't think all belong in another thread?
