It's sad to see. But in the past 20 years, the courts have become very slow and matches are becoming unwatching with defensive players getting to shots that should be winners. Add to that horrible TV coverage, bad calendar scheduling, no real grass court season, and tennis is slowly making itself an irrelevant sport.
Guys such as Nadal, Murray, and Djokovic are all very talented. But if they get everything back due to courts being slow, that really does not bode too well for other players and fans in general. The contrast is simply not there. People don't serve and volley anymore. Servers can't even win matches against average people these days. Take Roddick. A few years ago, he would have never lost to a Tipsarevic. Now all his serves coming back and he is exposed badly.
As a fan of sport of tennis, it's sad to see everything slowing down. And the laws not being enforced (time wasting between points, fake injuries, abuse of rules) is making the sport look bad. And ATP does not like McEnroe type personalities anymore, which is why top tennis athletes fail to show up on the front page of magazines such as ESPN or SI.
How can we fix this?
Don't watch tennis if it's so bad. I think tennis is as exciting as it has ever been
And by the way, Andy lost to Tipsarevic a few years ago, genius.
