Probably one of the older players with the busiest schedules.

Well, it depends on the location of the tournaments you're playing.

Jakarta-Cape Town-Buenos Aires gets you a lot a miles while Brno I-Brno 2-Ostrava doesn't. :lol:

probably Wozniacki in her 40s :lol:

With the amount of tournaments she's been playing in order to maintain her ranking, her body won't last until 25, never mind 40.

During the last two months, Julia Cohen's schedule is probably one of the craziest :
- May 4 to 9th : USA indian Harbour
- May 19 to June 17 : France, Italy, Czech republic, Great Britain
- June 22 to 27th : USA BOSTON
- June 29 to july 10th : France (Mont de Marsan and Biarritz)
- From July 11th : week in Colombia (Bogota)

She actually played a USTA event in NJ last week, same week of Biarritz :haha: You know, she lost in Biarritz 1st round, she still had like 6 days off until her first round match in Bogotá :lol:

Some Colombians would kill you for that :p

Patty Schnyder is older and plays more than Vee. Sugiyama (before she retired) also played a rather busy schedule.

I remember the weird stretch where Jankovic played an event in Europe, played 1 week in Asia, and then went back to Europe for an event. Fall of 2008, maybe? Seemed one of the weirder scheduling decisions.

Sugiyama probably logged more miles than her peers because she played a lot of events and was based in Japan, which is pretty far off the radar screen for most events.

That was 2007. I think she played Bali, Beijing, Stuttgart, Bangkok and Zurich or something really silly like that!

Yulia Fedossova's 2007 season was rather strange.

Australian Open qualifying

Then;
Paris Indoors qualifying
Las Vegas 75k ITF
Antwerp qualifying
Memphis qualifying

All in consecutive weeks!

Jeca D in her prime was one of the best!
Tokyo - Zurich - Shanghai - Moscow - Leipzig -Kuala Lumpur

In consecutive weeks in 2000.

And she played every week possible from Hamburg (May) - Moscow (October) in 2001 apart from a week off before Roland Garros.

In 2001 & 2002, she had a round the world trip: Bahia - Tokyo - Leipzig.

She's the complete opposite now.

JJ. Not only does she have to fly country to country. But, when she's at Wimbledon, she clocks up a lot of milage going to and from Court 18 by helicopter.
