Comment that Jana Novotna made in 1998 about schedules, injuries....
Q. What is your program going to be? You say you're getting a little bit older now. You have to pace yourself more carefully?
JANA NOVOTNA: Yes, that's a good question. I always said it's really important because I hear a lot of players complaining that the season is too long. It is true. We play from January till the end of November. It is a long season. I always said that you have to know yourself, you have to know what is the best for you, then you have to pick the tournaments you like, the surface you like to play on. Also when you don't play, you need to have quality time off, but also to have good preparation. That's why I took the time off in the beginning of the year, not going to Australia. I had some really good time off. I prepared, and hopefully from that I can go for one or two months. It is really important to choose the right tournaments. You have to do it. It's very individual; you have to do it how you feel...
Well, same problem as 7 years ago.... Time to change!
