Another tennis "season" is almost in the books, but according to the ATP it's like the Energizer Bunny ....... it just keeps going and going. The injuries and no-shows remind one of NFL pre-season.

Stop the nonsense, incompetence and greed!

INFRASTRUCTURE ........ fill in the blanks
* Unify all existing tennis entities into an all-encompassing ruling body (Commission)
*Appoint a Commissioner of Tennis to: 1) protect the integrity of the game 2) well-being of the players 3) viability of the tournaments.
*Establish a Players Association where membership is obligatory (NO LONE RANGERS) for the benefit of all.
*Vote in players??reps (man and woman) for the Association.

Bring on innovation and imagination. Stop making excuses why this or that can't be done. Stop protecting turf. Let's see some initiative. Call on the proven professional organizers of this sport to get a chaotic house in order.
