Player power secures shorter men's season
The men's calendar is likely to be shortened by at least two more weeks in major changes beginning in two years' time.
The Association of Tennis Professionals is expected to reveal shortly that its 2014 calendar will see the Paris Masters, which is currently played in the first week of November, move to a new date in February. This would enable the year-end World Tour Finals, which are currently held in London, to be brought forward. That would please the top players, who have long complained that the season is too long. Some non-mandatory events may be introduced between the World Tour Finals and the end of the year.
