Not a bad suggestion at all.

Okay, it's a given fact that the most tennis is played on clay and hardcourt. But when doing that, why not going for a balanced 5-5-5-5 scheme?

The whole calendar would need to be changed for that as it would require more grasscourt tournaments to be installed and some others would need to be scratched, but why wouldn't grass deserve to be (almost) equal in the number of events compared to indoor, clay and hardcourt?

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy
