Should the WTF be played on white ice???

Antarctica can host it. Provide the ice, some furry coats and ice skating equipment. Knee pads as well in case they fall. Penguins in the crowd chanting 'let's go Roger/Rafa/Novak' in Penguinese.

Gives the likes of Isner an incentive to qualify.

I've always said this myself!

Play a tournament in Antarctica and it'll be awesome! Give free tickets to the penguins so we'll have packed crowds and also make sure Monfils shows up to slide all around like a maniac!

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Maybe over crystal or quartzum surface. It would look classy. Topazium is nice too.

I think this is a sport I could be pretty successful at actually. Would love to see it.

What a fantastic idea. Milos Raonic would win it for a record 9 times in a row

White? If we can color clay, why not ice?

Great idea. Ice hurts much less than solid ground when you fall - you just slide along it, so it'd be good for the players.

1931 was a quality era. Back then there was no surface homogenization shit.

On a blue ice.

I always wondered if it´s possible to play on ice or snow...no bitching about bad slippery! And is ice fast or slow surface?
