Jon Wertheim: Murray, Williams sisters ready for grass-court season

1. Leaves of grass: Grass-court season is a term that verges on oxymoronic, so short is the interregnum between the French Open and Wimbledon. After their runs in Paris, both Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer pulled out of their scheduled tuneups and will enter Wimbledon cold. Rafael Nadal kept his commitment to the Aegon Queen's Club event but, understandably exhausted, fell on Friday to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. (As we write this, Andy Murray -- who demolished Andy Roddick in the semis -- will face Tsonga in a rain-delayed Monday final.) While it would be nice if there were more time to acclimate to a new surface, the problem is largely one of venue. If more complexes could accommodate a week-long grass-court tournament, you could make a better case for padding the schedule.
