Federer Promoting Fast Tennis!

Post by ... on Tue Nov 25, 2014 11:26 am

He, he...I knew this title would get you in Winking

When I posted this thread a few months ago, contemplating scrapping best of 5 format, I felt quite "brave" and revolutionary...

...but it seems that was nothing child's play compared to what's going to happen in Sydney next year...Federer and Hewitt are going to play an exhibition mtch promoting new rules for "faster" tennis.
Check it out!

"There are four rule variations from traditional tennis: no advantage scoring; no lets; a tiebreak at three games all; and sets won by the first player to four games."

Is this the beginning of the end...or the beginning of maybe a paralel ATP tour that will see older players competing without worrying about fitness and endurance too much.

I wouldn't mind it if we could watch Fed & co play till they are.....60+?
