Paris and Shanghai in 2008
According to the 2008 schedule on ATPtennis.com, next year's end of year Shanghai tournament is due to start on November 3rd. Paris finishes on November 2nd. So if a top 8 player reaches the final of Paris, is he supposed to jet all the way across the world to Shanghai and start playing within 24 hours of arrival?
Not exactly an encouragement to enter Paris.
