The Wrong Approach to Fix College Tennis

As we all know, the NCAA and the ITA have made some changes to the college tennis rules this year and it has all of the tennis community in an uproar. Scoring has changed, the number of games have been changed, warm ups have been canceled and even third sets have been replaced by super tiebreaks. Imagine the NCAA making baseball a six-inning game, football a three-quarter game or basketball a 30-minute game and you'll understand what tennis is going through right now. In my opinion, the NCAA and the ITA have ignored the gaping wound in the abdomen to focus on the splinter in the finger. Nobody has the answers yet but changing the sport altogether to accommodate a few fans or television is the wrong way to go.

Re: The Wrong Approach to Fix College Tennis

To be honest I think the changes were not too bad.....the dual just took too long from my point of view. The time investment of all involved parties was just too big compared to other sports....with shorter duals, it might be attractive to more people thus increasing the spectators.
