Grass court M1000

What do you guys think of a Grasscourt M1000?

Like a preview to wimbledon the 1st week of june.
I think it would "save" the grass-court. It's a bit sad to see only 6 grass tournaments in the ATP World tour level.

Check this fact:
Federer is the player who win most grass tournaments in the open era with 11 titles.

11 titles...


Share your opinion

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

Re: Grass court M1000

Yes. They should remove useless Paris-Bercy Masters and put a grasscourt one. But where? Forget about Queen's! I'll go with Halle.

Should there be a Grass TMS or 500?

Clay season and grass season should last the same amount of time, imo

Reduce hard court season. Add more grass.

Re: Grass court M1000

Definitely. What a shame that the surface gets no weighting outside of one tournament a year.

Re: Grass court M1000

I agree! Although it would be a shame to take away the only indoors Masters so maybe they should get win of one of the US ones (I'm thinking Cincy) - it would be awesome if such a grass-court M1000 could take place on courts designed to be more like traditional grass. Really fast with awkward low bounce. Then maybe we'd see a new wave of serve-volleyers coming through...

Come on Chris Eaton!

Re: Grass court M1000

at the very least they ought to give Halle and Queens 500-point status. Since 4 500-level tournaments are now mandatory, put them where the players like to play (everyone tries to play a Wimby warm-up). Four 500pt tournaments packed in February is just silly.

Re: Grass court M1000

I guess everyone agrees with this. Take hardcourts tournaments like Cincy-1000 and make Queens (or Halle) a MS tournament. I'm just saying...

Re: Grass court M1000

Hard season should be cut a little bit to make room for some more grass IMO.

Re: Grass court M1000

Personally I'd cut ANY OTHER SEASON.
It's the same, I just want grass-season larger.

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.
