Default Re: SHOULD SOME CLAY COURT TOURNAMENTS BE TAKEN FROM ATP SCHEDULE

The same could be said about hardcourt, both surfaces have a couple of mickey mouse tournaments. Just face it, most tennis is played on clay and hardcourt and there will always be players who climb the rankings by performing in those minor tournaments.

I think the ranking is actually quite fair nowadays with the best 5 optional tournaments counting besides the GS and AMS, preventing players from only playing in the smaller tournaments on their favorite surface.
