The speed up adherents appear apparently as the vast minority without any power to exact changes this sport desperately requires.
Otherwise, tennis is going to frequently lose popularity and eventually become a secondary sport for gamblers.
Not even that.

All of the top players, on any surface, have shit odds every match. It's impossible to make a profit on them. Only decent money I've made on tennis this year was Nadull over Fed at 13/8 AO semi finals and Nadull at 4-6 3-4 down also at 13/8 in-play against Nalbandian.
