I know that I am in the minority on this message board for wanting a shorter season. But the fans on message boards make up only a very small percent of all tennis fans. There are millions of people around the world who watch tennis and only a few thousand diehard fans who post on message boards.
I am only going by what so may players (Jennifer, Andre, Monica, Lindsay, Venus, Marat, Roger, Carlos, etc) have said. All of those players and plenty others have complained the year is too long.
If the season isn't too long, then why are Tennis Australia and the Grand Slam Committee trying to convince the tours to end the season earlier? And why is Juan Carlos Fererro threatening to sit out the Australian Open next year? And why are ratings and attendance for tennis dipping in most parts of the world?
