Which one is that? RG with Dusseldorf and Nice before it? Wimbledon with s-Hertogenbosch and Eastbourne before it? Or maybe US Open with Winston-Salem? Given AO is early in January, you can't possibly have a Masters two weeks before it, just as you can't have one before Wimbledon either, since the distance between it and RG is too small.
