by this time of the year they prefer to wear sweat pants and go face first into a pint of ice cream instead of playing some tier 10 in malaysia, so they think of a muscle and add "strain" to the end of it

If you ask me, I think all of the WTA should take the fall off, regroup, and play at the YEC. It would be players way of telling the WTA that their pissed, and aren't going to take it anymore!

A player has to play 17 tournments to have any chance of maintaining their ranking. Its too much. When I first started following tennis way back when (1990) they had a best 12 results system. I think that's not enough but why noy drop the maximum tournments to 14.

Most players are injured because they play more than 17 tournments as only the best 17 results count toward the ranking some play up to 25 tournments a year and if a player not getting injured they are on the fast track to burn out their way their stuffed.

Making the off season longer is one thing they can do but the player really need 10 weeks off 5 week to rest and the other five weeks to train so they are ready for Australia in Januray. Do we really need these indoor tournments after the US Open. I have hard time following them when Lindsay playing little alone when she not. Find four weeks of tournments and get rid of them and have a longer off season it would be better for all concerned.

if those indoor tournaments aren't played in your area, your favs wouldn't do well in them and u would hardly even get tv coverage, then sure u don't need them but that's not the case for everyone.

Also, 10 weeks off, huh??? I imagine it could display a hurdle to get back to playing tennis after u just didn't play for 10 weeks. I think I'd have a hard time finding back into my job when I'm just back from 10 weeks off.

Maybe the players should be the ones to decide "shall I play three tournaments in three weeks to maximize my ranking, or shall I only play two of them and increase my chances of staying injury-free for the whole year?"

There are girls out there who are capable of playing 50 matches a year and not getting injured. The ones who do get injured don't know the limitations of their body.

I would rather have the tennis season last as many weeks of the year as possible, and it should be up to the players to manage their health and schedule.
