Here’s my annual rant of players who bitch and moan that the tennis season is too long, too arduous and too taxing on the body only to KEEP PLAYING ONCE THE SEASON IS OVER!!!
I won’t name names, but you know who they are. And admittedly some don’t complain. But there are those who are continuing to play long after the season is over, many of whom have been and still are playing in Asia in one of two if not both lucrative exo leagues that have sprung up thanks to the shorter seasons:
And there are more. Point is, the off season is supposed to mean resting, not flying – for many – halfway around the world to play exo matches in India or some other country in Asia. So these players lose any right to complain.
I also understand that the money must be great for a guy like Federer who likely will pocket a few million bucks for this weekend, right? But look how good Roger did this season after he passed on the lucrative exo circuit last winter compared to Rafael Nadal’s 2014 after going on that South American junket last fall. Coincidence?
Just hope it’s all worth it in the end.
