Instead of the $1,000,000 Penn bracket challenge we'll have the $ 1,000,000 Penn entry list challenge. Whoever guesses all the players in a certain entry list will get the million.

Re: Mr Disney welcomes MTF suggestions to reform ATP, in light of banning Entry Lists

- Davydenko, Volandri and Vassallo Arguello should be allowed to set their own betting odds.

- Norm Chryst will be conducting eye tests for future umpires.

- Anyone who beats Federer, they have to play their next match with a balaclava, ice hockey helmet and sandbags on their feet.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Mr Disney welcomes MTF suggestions to reform ATP, in light of banning Entry Lists

If a set reaches a tiebreak, each player must select a FAN to compete for them in the tiebreak. The same FAN cannot be chosen to compete for two different set tiebreaks in one match. All the FANS will love it!

Re: Mr Disney welcomes MTF suggestions to reform ATP, in light of banning Entry Lists

I know it's fun to complain... but all we really need to do in order to be heard is stop buying tickets to the events. That'll teach Ol' Disney a lesson.

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

There is also a very special place in my heart for the three greatest WTA players of all time ---- Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Monica Seles!!!

Re: Mr Disney welcomes MTF suggestions to reform ATP, in light of banning Entry Lists

Each MTF member will decide who's gonna be in the entry list by voting with his mobile:

For federer send 1,if you want Rafa to be in the entry list send 2,if you don't want Stepanek in the tournament don't send a message,if you love Mr Disney you can also send a message "Mr Disney marry me" etc....(1$/message)
Then the one who brings ATP the more money will be in the entry list,the money gained with this vote will be given to the winner as the prize money.I think it's fair enough to the players!

Additional rule so that the fans could take part in this new concept: every week the most moving support letter to Mr disney is picked up by a profesional jury,and this lucky person would be given the opportunity to be in the entry list and would automatically be ranked in the ATp ranking!Mr Disney make your dreams come true!

These are the heads of marketing at the ATP.


On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Mr Disney welcomes MTF suggestions to reform ATP, in light of banning Entry Lists

To make indoor events more interesting, the crowd must be allowed to through smoke flares on court.

If a player losing to Volandri on indoors. "They must sing na na na hey hey goodbye" before they can leave the court.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
