What do you mean by Tier X? And would you have all of those tournaments or just one? I actually think it's a better idea to have that one week separation between the slam and the Tier 1 so I would switch Birmingham and Eastbourne and switch Tokyo and Sydney.

There are a total of 58 tournaments in my schedule and I have made some edits. On the 2005 'Real' Tour Calender, there are 65 tournaments. I have deleted the South American tournaments and switched Hopman Cup to a WTA Tournament and the ASB Bank Classic to a team event to begin the Australian season. You can see that the tour ends one week sooner! :)

I would create more tournaments in the UK

Create more grass tournaments (maybe have one in America in Newport with the ATP).

Create more carpet tournaments for Maggie Maleeva

Cut down on the American hardcourt tournaments and share them out.

Give WTA tournaments to Croatia, Serbia, Argentina and one more in Africa.

The UK doesn't have the greatest summer, so it wouldn't work with Wimbledon's scheduling. Putting more tournaments at that time would also push the starting of the US Open into like, mid-September.

Croatia and Serbia? What is this? Argentina deserves one, but there are too many claycourt tournaments as it is. Maybe I can squeeze one in.

Has Africa ever had a tournament before? If so, what players would play there? There are like, no Africans on the tour.

The UK summer ain't that bad - and it doesn't have to actually be in the summer. We could have an event in the Birmingham Indoor Arena for example, where they have previously played Davis Cup. Play it on carpet the week after Zurich for example!!!!

Croatia - used to have one. What with Karolina Sprem and Jelena Kostanic flying the flag for thier country.

Serbia - simple. Jelena Dokic, Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic play in front of their home crowd.

Africa = event in Casablanca. Would be a nice chance to get tennis played more world wide! Or have events in South Africa - in Zimabawe for example to let Cara Black shine in front of her home crowd.
