On ESPN they keep talking about pros being forced to play 5 matches in the remaining

...6 days, but nobody mentioned poor juniors most of whom will have to play 5 singles and 5 doubles in the remaining 6 days since the majority of them are in both singles and doubles draws...

And if tomorrow is rained out or disrupted, I wouldn't be surprised they play a pro-set in doubles.

And it's not most pros either. It works both ways.

If a junior can't handle playing five matches in six days then maybe they shouldn't be playing international tournaments
