New Year, New Season

The new tennis season commences on the first day of the year. This week there are ATP tournaments in Doha (Qatar), Adelaide (Australia), and Chennai (India). The WTA tour starts out with two championships in Gold Coast (Australia) and Auckland (New Zealand).

Many players had their last matches in mid-November, leaving them with a recess of only about six weeks. Those guys and gals are professionals but they deserve a longer break. So do the fans. There are only a couple of dozen people on the stands in Doha right now, freezing their asses off. Is that really necessary? Anyhoo, I also understand that the players want to get in the game again before the Australian Open. So maybe there is a point in all this.
