The tennis player Andy Murray, who participated this week in the Battle of the British, was concerned about the tight schedule in the coming months and proposed the introduction of a temporary ranking to two years.
This measure has already been proposed in the past Rafael Nadal, to prevent injuries from damaging the players in the classification, and was one of the reasons for the discrepancy between him and Roger Federer, contrary to the initiative, in the ATP Players Council.
“It is not safe for the players to go from playing semifinals in the US Open to going to Madrid, with altitude and on the ground, after what they have not competed with. Many players will not be able to compete in major tournaments“the Briton said after falling in the semifinals of the London exhibition.
The circuit recovers normality from August 14 with the dispute of the Washington ATP 500, followed by Cincinnati and the US Open, after which a clay court tour in Europe will be held, culminating with Roland Garros.
“It may be worth taking a look at a two-year ranking., so that those who did well last year and are not now able to defend their points are not punished, “added Murray.
