Do they have to play 17 tournaments?
I was listening to the commentators during one of Serena's matches and I think it was Tracy Austin that was commenting on how Serena never plays the full 17 tournaments. Is it kind of an unwritten requirement now? I was just wondering cause there was a lot of talk about whether the players are getting overworked. I know that they pick the best 17 tournaments but is it really neccessary for some players to play 25-30+ tournaments in a year?
