An adjustement of rules of tennis game

A game must be won by the serving player within a given time - say 4 minutes - or the game automaticaly goes to the recieving player. From the other side, recieving player has to completely follow the rhythm of the server and can not in any way influence his serving, including the amount of time that passes between the two serves.

Grand Slam Season as of 2008:

Australian Open
Roland Garros
JOKE SLAM
U.S. Open


Right word in the right moment - a glass of watter in the desert.

Say it again?

'Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.'

Re: An adjustement of rules of tennis game

Nadal would never hold serve. He has trouble getting 3 or 4 points into a 4 minute span.

This might not be the dumbest idea I've ever heard, but it's in the top 5..

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS
