|Mon.||I have always thought that Roland Garros and Wimbledon are too close together. There should be at least a week more in between RG and Wimbledon, cause the grass season is just way too short.|

Have them at the same time
Now we'll see who's laughing Mr. Chirac

There shold be at least 1 extra week's break. 1 month would be great.
I don't see that being a drama on the calender- the tournements are already there-
You woudl have
2. s'hergonbosh mens and ladies
3. Birmingham & Halle/Queens
4.Eastbourne & Nottingham
They could also play Newport the same wek as s'hergonsbosh
I think this move is more important than the Oz Open move (which is wonrg-- the season should just ifnish earlier in the year!)

It seems that given the drastic surface change and the gruelling nature of clay court tennis, it is in the interests both of tennis as a whole and of all the players to space out these two events by a week.

Keep it the way it is....Justine lost in the first round because she got outplayed, just as Serena was outplayed in the 3rd.
I say if players are lacking preperation they should modify thier schedules.

|selyoink||I also think there should be an extra week inbetween them. Add one more grass court event that could be either a Tier I or II. They are too close together as things currently stand.|

|Andy T||There should definitely be an extra week between RG and Wimbledon with Wimbledon moving a week later. Eastbourne should become a Tier 1 and a new tier 2 or 3 should be introduced between Eastbourne and Wimbledon.|

|Dirty Sanchez||I personally would be a big fan of a longer grass court season. The current one is just over in a flash, yet we're overloaded with clay and hard court events. Surely that's a bit unfair on those players who's best surface is grass?!|

|chris whiteside||If they keep slowing the Wimbledon courts down it wouldn't make much difference. Baseliners have as much chance there now as serve and volleyers. (Are there any left anyway?!!!!)|

|ezekiel||it hasn't been this way before and someone may corrct me but I seem to remember RG starting in early may. There should definitely be at least 3 weeks between these 2 majors. The change is too great but also spreads the tournaments around.|
|Jul 5th, 2005 01:31 AM|
I would NOT change it. It has been this way for years.
This makes it very special when a player wins BOTH in the same year.
I think this has been done by only five or six players.

|~Cherry*Blossom~||I think they should have a Tier I on grass and maybe have an extra week or two between the French and Wimbledon|

|Jakeev||Wimbledon supposedly going to be pushed back a week either in 2006 or 2007.|
