Figures. You skip the oldest non-grandslam. Canadian Open hater.

Well, four are a given: Aussie, French, Wimbledon, US Open.

Adidas is naturally a good warm up for the Australian. A green clay tournament, Berlin, and Rome seems ideal before the French (what's the point of playing both green clay tournaments? They're simple novelties). Wimbledon tune ups are pointless IMHO. Indian Wells and Miami are staples of the tour. The summer hard court series... a Tier II and a Tier I would be just fine. The indoor season is insignificant, but I would play perhaps Zurich and Philly, giving me two nice tune ups should I qualify for the YEC.

So far:

Sydney
Melbourne
Indian Wells
Miami
Charleston
Berlin
Rome
Paris
London
San Diego
Toronto
New York
Zurich
Philadelphia

YEC?

That is 14 tournaments, possibly 15, with quite a few long breaks in the schedule. That also leaves some room for a few extra smaller tournaments, which I would rotate each year, just so I could see all corners of the world. :bounce:

I think that sounds like a reasonable schedule, though...

I would play like Lindsay. Like her, I can't tolerate red clay. But unlike her, I'd at least show up in Rome to save face. Plus, I'd whore up all the California tournaments.

LMAO! You watch the Canadian Open and you're not even playing it! If you're a good player, you can make both the Indian Wells and Miami finals (playing four weeks). But the schedule also depends how good you are and your surface preference. Schnyder likes to occasionally whore up a small event (Gold Coast, Cincinatti).

If anyone withdraws from the Cannuck event, they will do nothing. Just how they react to all situations.

Considering that I personally do my best on slower surfaces and not as good on faster surfaces (although I'm competent on them, it's not a Smashnova situation), my schedule would look like this. I would also turn down Fed Cup because the US doesn't have a consistent team, and I would also turn down all exhibitions, etc.

January 2nd-8th-Uncle Toby's hardcourts

January 15th-February 1st-Australian Open

Feb 21 - Feb 26 Qatar Total Open
Feb 28 - Mar 5 Dubai Duty Free Women's Open

Mar 23 - Apr 2 NASDAQ-100 Open

Apr 25 - May 1 Estoril Open
May 2 - May 8 Ladies German Open
May 9 - May 15 Italia Masters
May 16 - May 21 Strasbourg International
May 22 - Jun 4 French Open

Jun 20 - Jul 2 Wimbledon Championships

July 18th-24th- Cincinnati Open

Aug 15 - Aug 21 Rogers Cup
Aug 21 - Aug 27 Pilot Pen Tennis
Aug 29 - Sep 11 US Open

Sep 12 - Sep 18 Wismilak Intenational
Sep 19- Oct 25th-Sunfeast Open
Sep 26 - Oct 2 Guangzhou International Women's Open
Oct 3 - Oct 9 AIG Japan Open Tennis Champ's
Oct 10 - Oct 16 Thailand Open

Oct 31 - Nov 6 Advanta Championships (if I have a shot at making the Masters)
Nov 7- Nov 13- LA Masters (if I make it)

Playing the major clay court events, weaker hard court events mixed with an occasional big one, FUCK the grass/indoor = 20-22 events

Geisha
Aug 19th, 2005, 04:31 AM
that's one crazy schedule.

Gold Coast, Porto, Strasbourg, Cincinatti, India, Guangzhou- I mean, these are a bunch of small tournaments that will only tire you out- especially if you are the 10th ranked player in the world. This is almost Jelena Dokic scheduling...

DragonFlame
Aug 19th, 2005, 04:32 AM
really cool thread! :D

my schedule would exist out of 16 tournaments and i would keep the time-off and playtime as much balanced as possible :) i play 22 weeks and have 21 weeks off during the season. (7-8 weeks off out of the season in november-
december)

i have a few doubts but i still think if we look at the busy schedule this is my favourite.
issue 1. i could throw out miami or indianwells and put 2 tournie's in the place of 1 of them like throw out indianwells and play dubai and charleston. that would be a nice schedule too :) . then i wouldn't be playing for 4 weeks straight and have the rankingbased 17 tournie's. i like both options.
issue 2. the ordina open, it's my hometournie so i want to play there and i take 2 weeks off before the french, 1 week before the ordina open and 4 weeks after wimbledon so that's balanced i think. :)

my schedule would be:

Jan 9 - Jan 15 Medibank International
Jan 15- Feb 1- Australian Open
------3weeks off--------------
Feb 21 - Feb 26 Qatar Total Open
------2weeks off--------------
Mar 9 - Mar 19 Pacific Life Open
Mar 23 - Apr 2 NASDAQ-100 Open

xxxxxx-3weeks off-xxxxxxxxxxxx

Apr 26 - May 1 J&S Cup
May 2 - May 8 Ladies German Open
------2weeks off--------------
May 22 - Jun 4 French Open

xxxxxx-1week off-xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Jun 13 - Jun 19 Ordina Open(my hometournament hehe)
Jun 20 - Jul 2 Wimbledon Championships

xxxxxx-4weeks off-xxxxxxxxxxxx

Aug 1 - Aug 7 Acura Classic
-------1week off--------------
Aug 15 - Aug 21 Rogers Cup
-------1week off--------------
Aug 29 - Sep 11 US Open

xxxxxx-3weeks off-xxxxxxxxxxxx

Oct 3 - Oct 9 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix
-------1week off--------------
Oct 17 - Oct 23 Swisscom Challenge
-------2weeks off-------------
Nov 9 - Nov 14 WTA Tour Championships

These are all Tier III tournaments, with the exception of India. It's basically acknowledging that I couldn't beat the top players on a faster surface, but I could beat anyone outside the top 8 or so.

Hmm, insteresting idea, but why are you playing Tier III tournaments on clay?

If you're a clay court specialist, that's what you have to do. That's your time of the year to shine. Besides, if you're playing 2 tournaments over the following 2 1/2 months, one of which you'll likely lose in the first or second round, it provides ample time for rest and recovery.

Well, here is the claycourt tournament schedule, so couldn't you just play:

Apr 4 - Apr 10 Bausch & Lomb Championships
Apr 11 - Apr 17 The Family Circle Cup
Apr 26 - May 1 J&S Cup
May 2 - May 8 Ladies German Open
May 9 - May 15 Italia Masters

That's six tournaments, all Tier II or higher. You'll get a ton of points by beating tons of top players and you can play up to 31 matches on clay...

No, not really, because if you are such a great claycourter, then you will have a tough test at the beginning of a Tier II tournament, not a Tier III.

Precisely.

You guys also have to realize that not EVERY player is prone to getting injured. Perhaps they overtrain as well. It really depends on the player. Amanda Coetzer played almost 30 events a year in her heyday. Ditto with Likhovtseva now. When was the last time you saw them pulling out of tournaments with injuries? Venus and Serena can barely get through 12-14 events a year. Again, different players, different body types.

Perhaps it should be specified when creating your schedule how injury prone you are (or aren't).

That's 17 events :tape: Those are the only tournaments that really appeal to me and that I feel are really useful :shrug:

It also looks a lot like a typical Justine schedule :p

I think the clay schedule is probably a little overloaded for me, but I think along the way, I'd probably pull out of Charleston or Warsaw. But notice that I didn't really crowd my schedule near the end of the year :) That's to give myself enough rest when my body is ready to break itself apart from all the tennis I play in the beginning of the year :)

Looking back at all the rest weeks that I gave myself, I'm pretty proud of the schedule I have ;) Some would say I'm lazy, but at least I KNOW that I won't get any injuries/burnout related to playing way too much.

Precisely.

You guys also have to realize that not EVERY player is prone to getting injured. Perhaps they overtrain as well. It really depends on the player. Amanda Coetzer played almost 30 events a year in her heyday. Ditto with Likhovtseva now. When was the last time you saw them pulling out of tournaments with injuries? Venus and Serena can barely get through 12-14 events a year. Again, different players, different body types.

Perhaps it should be specified when creating your schedule how injury prone you are (or aren't).


Assuming I was one of these players, who wasn't prone to injury AND had massive reserves and mental and physical stamina?

I'd make sure I played in EVERY Tier I and II tournament, the Grand Slams, and the YEC. I say to hell with the anything Tier III or lower! ;) :lol:

So that would make for a grand total of 31 tournaments! No problemo! :bounce:
