I think a lot of the injuries, illnesses etc. have a lot to do with players coming from the harsh heat of the Australian Summer to the minus Winter temps of Europe. The WTA roadmap is so wrong. Paris should be towards the end of the year with Linz, Moscow etc. That's only one of the problems. Having Fed Cup so soon after AO is harsh, and don't even get me started on both the WTA and ATP slowing down courts and therefore causing more injuries to players. It's such a mess. There's a reason players are getting injured more than ever.
