In the near future, I am afraid that most of the tennis, especially competitive one will be played indoors. In Japan, the number of indoors facilities is increasing, and I personally switched last year. Too hot and humid in summer, too cold in winter, lots of rain cancelling everything, then quite often strong winds making play almost impossible.

Can't catch a break this, ice, now mud. No climate change at all. Just several coincidence at once.
