Some hardcourt tournaments would most likely need to be scratched in favour of new grass ones (there are enough).
To make the schedule smaller and slimmer in general, some of the indoor, clay and hardcourt tournaments would need to go, but no grass tournaments should be taken away as this stretch of the season is too short already anway.
I've not thought about it that much calndar wise but it would be possible to cut one week from the clay season, one week from the early hard court season and one week from the late hard court season. Ad one of these weeks to the grass season and make the schedule two weeks smaller. Encorporate a grass AMS and boom! Tennis is like it should be
