Re: This should be the ATP calendar

Not too bad- but to design a proper calendar you need the minority events included too and actually build from scratch. My calendar was this.

Week1- Adelaide, Doha
Week2- Auckland, Sydney
Week3-4 Australian Open
Week 5- Davis Cup World Group
Week 6- Beijing, Chennai
Week 7- Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City
Week 8- TMS Tokyo (hardcourt)
Week 9- Davis Cup Quarter Finals
Week 10- Vina del Mar, Valencia, Umag
Week 11- Palermo, Casablanca, Buenos Aires
Week 12- TMS Monte Carlo
Week 13- Barcelona, St Polten, Gstaad
Week 14- Bastad, Costa du Sauipe, Houston
Week 15- TMS Rome
Week 16- Kitzbuhel, Stuttgart, Acapulco
Week17-18 Roland Garros
Week 19- Newport, Liverpool (yeah go on bring ATP tennis here)
Week 20- TMS London
Week 21- TMS Halle
Week 22- s'hertogenbosch
week 23-24 Wimbledon
Week 25- Indianapolis
Week 26- Los Angeles, Miami ATP (not a TMS)
Week 27- Cincinnati ATP (no longer a TMS)
Week 28- Montreal/Toronto TMS
Week 29- Indian Wells TMS
Week 30- Washington DC
Week 31- New Haven
Week 32-33 US Open
Week 34- Marseille, Moscow
Week 35- Belgrade (new), Milan
Week 36- Davis Cup World Group playoffs/semis
Week 37- Lyon, Stockholm
Week 38- Rotterdam, St Petersburg
Week 39- TMS Madrid
Week 40- Basel, Vienna
Week 41- TMS Paris
Week 42-43- Tennis Masters Cup
Week 44- Davis Cup Final

Some will have complaints about this but I think it's fair. Less clay court events and also less hard court events, and more grass and a bit more indoor. That's how it should be.
I've always felt that clay, grass and hardcourt events should be more evenly distriubuted throughout the year. I think the indoor events are fine as they are now though.
