Jet-lag always be a struggle for Wta players?

Most of players have to do with this problem,so,I suppose that they have technicals to be not too tired before begin a tournement.
I particulary think about the summer period. They play on europeen ground and,right back after,they came to U.S hard court. There is more than eight or nine hours of time difference... How they do?

Yes, I think getting jat in between the legs is still a major issue for the WTA players.

The tour tries it's best to accommendate for jet-lag.
In many cases it's the players choices that really make it an issue.
The players who consistently play Tier IIIs or IVs and then show up for the Tier Is usually have the worse jet-lag. This week would have been a pain for Anna Smashnova.
Also players who opt to play the Teir IIIs and IVs when there's a Teir II in play also have issues.
In the case of Kim that happened last year. She could have played Philadelphia where her fiance used to play but opted out. She played Hasselt instead then stayed in Belgium.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."

Something needs to change.
