Get them out and bring them in for the next match.

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".

When chubby Chela wins a match, he should rip of his shirt and do a Hulk Hogan impression.

Everytime Volandri aces his opponent, ATP donates 1000000 dollars to poor people.

The same amount should be done everytime Karlovic hits a groundstoke winner.

Fair enough.

Everytime Gaudio and Daniel win a match on grass, ATP eliminates 2 random players from the main draw of that tournament.

Who is the true evil on the ATP tour?
Satan versus Nalbandian IV versus Mr. Disney

It's time for some suggestions that Mr Disney should listen to, since he wants to make tennis more interesting for the masses.

- Instead of a TB, they should have a serving contest where they place a cone in the service box and the person who hits it the most will win. (GWH)

- It should be decided on a round of Greco-Roman wrestling. Labadze will then proceed to become the marketing dream of the ATP. (Merton)

- If Tursunov is playing, then he must be allowed to have a blog off against his opponent except if it is Federer or Nadal, cause they have to be in the final. (GWH)

- As for the clay they have to do as many 360s while sliding laterally and forwards within a minute and have a tennis ball balanced on their head. (GWH)

- Instead of hitting a cone, they should bring out a lion in a cage on the service line - most balls served into the lions mouth wins. Bring on the Spectacle, Disney boy... and serve that cotton candy... (TenHound)

- Another idea to replace the tie-break: they pick 2 random spectators in the crowd (one for each player). The 1st player who gets his serve returned by the spectator loses.

OR

No spectator involved but they can do something like the penalty kicks in football (since Mr. Disney loves the WC system). If the opponent can't return the serve it counts as a goal. (Saumon)
I vote they can-can de Villiers and supplant him with none other than our very own George WHitler. As long as the ATP installs a screwball who wants to emphasize the E in Entertainment value of the sport, might as well make the entertainment a laugh riot.

You're on a roll. Whatever you do, don't stop now. Although, I must add, I seem to have lost my taste for walnuts.

Every side change, both players are able to spit his opponent once. The one who fail is penalized with a game.

Re: Fearless Leader Mr Disney Welcomes MTF suggestions to reform the ATP

Anytime LaLo hits a topspin backhand winner he automatically gets through to the semi finals.

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: Fearless Leader Mr Disney Welcomes MTF suggestions to reform the ATP

The new double revolution which finally will attract American fans: Roger Rabbit/federer versus Mowgli/Nadal.

"Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.”- Muhammad Ali“

Re: Fearless Leader Mr Disney Welcomes MTF suggestions to reform the ATP

The audience should be allowed to vote people out of the tournament Big Brother-style. The two most popular players remaining can play the final.

Or..

We could have an idols-like jury consisting of a former mediocre female tennis player, a tennis coach and a tennis official to criticise the players after every unforced error. This jury could consist of Jana Novotna, Brad Gilbert an Mr. Disney himself.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....
