Rule changes to come in tennish

Post by luvsports! on Tue Nov 21, 2017 4:55 pm

Tweet from NYT journo Clarey saying at Aus Open in 2018 there will be a 25-second shot clock and in 2019 there will be 16 seeds at slams!

Rafa ain't happy! "If you don't want a great show, of course it's a great improvement," he said in August.

I want a great show! and Tennis was great before Nadal's time.

Let's see whether the 16 slam champion can win a slam within the rules!

I am curious.

So now he kind of admits it never was about OCD?

Can see this reigniting the GOAT debate in decades to come! Especially on the seed reduction side which was always long over due.

Shot clock was always the most pragmatic solution moving forward for time violations. Why it took so long as above is beyond me.

Yes this rule has been a joke since nadal came on board cause we know players respected it before. But the reason it took so long is simple. It is the same reasons which allowed lance to dope at will. Those guys sell. It is that simple.

The question is more like, why now? I think the answer might be that it is time we create new selling icons.

At AO, Rafa will lose every one of his service games to love, having failed to put a single serve in play on time.

Did he not always admit that?  I seem to remember that after his AO final vs Djokovic he may have even said something like "you could not have matches like this without longer time between points".

I thought that OCD thing was always just something people (but not Rafa himself) were peddling to excuse Rafa's cheating.

Well I think he played on it as well. His routine, his bottles placement, etc...he certainly wanted to entertain it.

Nadal said he would if he could, but he can't! [play to the rules] 
I hate him madly
Let the authorities take him away from us, gladly!
A brand new top 10
A highly commendable
Rule change rendezvous!

I feel like dancing in the rain
Can I have a volunteer?
"What a damn jolly good idea!"
