Another excuse for tards when Nadal wins the title: shouldn't count as a true Wimbledon title because the scoreboard was changed.
I kind of liked it, but understand that mantaining a very old thing like that, with probably no more replacement parts, etc. was expensive and pointless.
Also, think that if all traditions were kept forever, we would not be watching tennis, but burning people alive, or eating raw meat. Things change.
Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open
, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series
, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)
The inhabitants of the Balearic Islands are said to have been the inventors of slings, and to have managed them with surprising dexterity, owing to the manner of bringing up their children. The children were not allowed to have their food by their mothers till they had first struck it with their sling.
~Vegetius, De Re Militari, late 4th century
Nadal: the last Balearic Slinger, the ultimate product of natural selection. Feel the weight of the centuries in the Topspin from Hell!
