What do you think about those who play every week?

What do you think about players like Nadia (before injury), Patty and ElenaD who play every week?

Elena doesn't play every week!

ALG and Patty on the other hand....I think their ranking is a little inflated
I don't see any problem with it except when the player is often injured

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber

If you're healthy enough to, go ahead. Chances are those players aren't winning a LOT of matches week in and week out, so it makes sense to play a lot. There's also rumors going around about players who play every week because they... *looks to see no one is listening* ...they like tennis *gasp*!

i find it annoying-players dont need to play every week like ALG and in the long term it does them more harm than good

If they are healthier than rest of the tour. kudos to them for their fitness when some most of the tour is in hospital. They are the one earning money for the tour.

As long as they're not hurting themselves then I'm all for it. People who complain about inflated rankings are just pissed off that their favorite isnt higher ranked.

Riding the 3AM Rollercoaster!! Players I support, no matter what
Anastasia Myskina, Kim Clijsters, Alicia Molik, Elena Dementieva, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Tatiana Golovin, Ai Sugiyama
Juan Carlos Ferrero, Lleyton Hewitt, Tommy Robredo, Rafael Nadal, Gaston Gaudio, Nikolay Davydenko, Richard Gasquet, Jarkko Nieminen, Mario Ancic, Mikhail Youznhy, Novak Djokovic, Marin Cilic, Andy Murray, Evgeny Korolev, Paul-Henri Mathieu, Dmitry Tursunov, Stanislas Wawrinka

It bothers me b/c several of these players are on the fast track to burnout... Then again they may play every week, but that may only consist of 2 matches or so. Someone like Davenport or Sharapova couldn't possibly play every week since they consistently play finals.. so I could see either side of it. It's every player's personal decision and nothing I think will change it.

Lena D does not play every week.

"Playing every week" means playing 25 or more tournies per year. Lena D plays about 20.

as far as Petrova and Schnyder, last i checked, people who work more get paid more. So for those who are physically healthy enough, it's not a bad idea to play a lot of events.

Jankovic played 15 weeks bad in row and next 15 good in the row but dont miss any of 30 weeks in the row!!!

GO JELENA

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

no one tops davydenko on atp side, I don't know if he has missed a week this year and I don't even wanna know if he ever gets sex let alone rest On wta side, I am thinking ALG and Patty.

I think these players just want to be away from home for whatever reason and like to travel
