OK, I guess it's official. The "Big Four" that is.
Andy Murray finally won that elusive major. Each of the Big Four (Murray, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer) won a major title in 2012. Murray also won the Olympics title.
In the Cheap Seats, we are exhausted, as fans, after a long and exhilarating year. We cannot even imagine how the players must feel. But, alas, there is still tennis to be played. Really, though, tennis should have an offseason between the end of the US Open and the e start of the Australian Open. Why not culminate with the last major of the year, then let everyone take a well-deserved break.
Let the players recuperate. Let the fans catch their breath. Start back up in late December/early January with Aussie Open tune-up tournaments. Tennis has never been better world-wide than it is right now. Let us not run it into the ground. A true offseason is needed more now than ever before
Personally, we are going to take a break. We only wish the players could do the same.
