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

skel1983, I understand your point. The situation is that we face a reality: to construct a clay court and to maintain it in good state throughout the year, is cheaper than a grass court.
The ranking points system, as Cervantes says, in certain way tries to correct this "disadvantage" for the specialists in courts like grass.
And yes, It's truth that is difficult to prevail in tennis, being a grass specialist, but as well as there are more clay courts, also there are more specialists on clay, for that reason those that shine in clay also have a great merit.


or in other words
