It makes more sense to see it happening towards the end of the year due to fatigue or wear and tear. At this point, they need to consider player's safety first. What should they change it to, and who would it benefit more if they do change it?
Serena and Na lose their balance, not the surface's fault


Inspiration is for amateurs


Faves: Mona Barthel / Samantha Stosur / Roberta Vinci
