Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Why did they switch from White balls, is it easier to see green on tv?

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

I have always assumed it is in the order on the drawsheet, but I have never checked!

Why'd they get rid of carpet tennis courts?

Surface homogenisation by the ATP. Carpet didnt fit the bill, it was too fast and good

They're obviously just like in the draw. #1 always on top, #2 always on bottom.

Stan Wawrinka
2014 Australian Open Champion | 2014 Monte Carlo Masters Champion | 2015 French Open Champion | 2016 US Open Champion

What do you mean by that? I've often seen the seeded player be at the bottom of the scoreboard.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

See here: http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/sc.../ms/msdraw.pdf

The first column is the initial draw. The order of the players is the same for every single match throughout the tournament. If player A is above player B in the initial draw then if they meet player A will be first and player B second.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Why does Olympic Gold give 750 points? I think it's at least as prestigious as an M1000 title.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

It's halfway through a Masters and a ATP 500. I think it's appropriate. Not everyone is eligible to participate, so it only makes sense to limit the gain. You also cannot defend the points. And it's not really that prestigious. It's coveted yes, prestigious - not really.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

This is really stupid but I need to know:

At Wimbledon (the GS) do they interview the players RIGHT AFTER the game? On their way out from the court?
And they did this at OG? With both winners and losers?
