If an Extreme version of tennis was developed,what would you like seeing in it ?

If someone developed 'Extreme Tennis', where the game is turned into
an extreme sport, what unique and original things would you like seeing
in it, compared to the normal way tennis is played on a grass or clay court ?

Movement. Players should move around the court like Scott Weiland moves around the stage. Extremely good!

i think they should introduce a court made of hot coals and players are forced to play barefeet.

i think they should come up with something resembling the game bond and largo played in that one movie. the one where they played battleships and every sunk boat meant a little electrocution.

that way a guy like murray is probably going to keep his hair up the way some mtf'ers have him in the avatar.

With each point you lose, a small piece of your side of the court will break away and crumble into a bottomless abyss. Kind of like the underground pipe organ in The Goonies. Provides incentive not to tank.

Instead of tiebreaks they should have an ultimate fighter kind of thing to determine who wins the set. That's usually what would happen when I used to play my brother, anyway.

These are the kind of threads that make MTF legendary.

Better than brief tennis would be strip tennis. With underwear on deuce.
