Angry Time since the Tennis TV Producer played tennis?

I'm sick of watching that "Time since last point" BS on my screen! It is sooo biased!

Has the Tennis TV Producer or whoever he is even played or watched tennis before? I was watching Nadal-Nalbandian yesterday. Ok Nadal takes a few extra seconds that don't really bother me, neither to his opponents, but that silly "Time since last point" thing made him look worse!

Nadal sprinted to the net to reach a drop shot from Nalbandian, so of course it's going to take him a little bit to start next point! Producer just counted time as if it is the ordinary time Nadal takes between points!

Another one. Crowd were yelling before a big point so Nadal had to wait a little bit to serve. Producer displayed time since last point like it was Nadal's fault!

That guy needs to learn about tennis first and stop with that stupid and biased "Time since last point" BS!!!

Some people seem to be obsessed with speeding up the game. I'm not one of them. If they want fast shit, go follow the xgames.

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

Lol, biased. The timer got up to 40 seconds quite a few times in Rafa's last match. 55 seconds for Lapentti in R2 too. Ridic.

Hilarious considering that Federer had a 52 second service game in the same match

As I said on my first post those were not ordinary points! Circumstances made Nadal take a little bit of time!
Why do they never show it after ordinary points when Nadal serves in time??? It is biased and ridiculous!

Better to play boring once in a while than having a overall dull game

Nalbandian was playing the same tough rallies and did not resort to 40 second pauses!
