Restart of the tennis season should be gradual and carefully scheduled to avoid putting too much physical demands on the players, says former Top 10 player Peter Fleming.
While current plans for a reschedule include holding the US Open, one or two Masters and Premier events and the French Open, a restart is still very much theoretical at this point.
“Let's hope we see tennis at any point this year. It's looking more and more precarious,” Fleming told TENNIS.com. “Hopefully, the schedule will include smaller tournaments that provide rest weeks for the top players, because no one can play more than four to five weeks in a row even when in prime condition, let alone after a five or six month layoff.”
