According to http://www.atpworldtour.com, the off-season as of 2012 will be extended to 7 weeks, a small step in the right direction for our sport. This will extend players careers with more time to heal both physically and mentally.
Eventually, this commentator would like to see four full months of off-season for the top players. This would give excitement to everyone including fans who would get a break and have something to look forward to when tennis returns at the Aussie Open in late January!
