The reason it lasted so long, was because neither of them tried to finish the points. That´s not tennis. Besides, I cant even see the commercial benefit in it. Fine, it´s easier for a casual fan to watch a match where the ball is in play, but surely a casual fan won´t want to watch a tennis match for what, five hours? And anyone who understands anything about the game, would appreciate more variety, more attacking.
