wouldn't happen, the best player will still come through, it's not like we're playing 2 slams at the same time, putting half the players in 1 draw and half in another, in a situation where all the top players will be in a draw, and a relatively bad player will win the other.

The top players will have to be beaten for someone to win the slam, and with the current dominance the winner will more than likely have to beat 1 of them, even in they were all on the same half they have to beat one of them in the final.

I didn't say I totally agree with the idea, but it does have it's benefits

Don't play any joint events with those WTA vampires. They get equal pay so now they can do their own fucking thing. God damn vultures!

Re: MTF suggestions to reform the ATP and tennis in general

Players should get coaching.

As for tourney's and seeding, I think less seeds is better, make the seeds randomize in the draw, except for maybe the top 2 or 4 only, and possibly start thinking about getting rid of the 1rd byes for the seeds, so they have to play earlier which will make the early round TV coverage start earlier, which is better for everyone.

yeah I don't really get this train of thought. You are implying that the top 4 are winning everything now because of the seeding system. Surely that is not the case..?

You are a omnipotent ruler of the ATP and can bring in a surface of your choice. Choose!

On Murray

Re: What surface would you bring to tennis?

I would introduce the "anti-N/Adull surface" Basically it's indoor wood covered in ice, and the roofs would be about 8 feet high so that Dull's moonballs would just hit the ceiling.

Nice idea. I like the one where the players hover myself

No friction = fastest courts ever

Re: MTF suggestions to reform the ATP and tennis in general

enforce an anti-pushing rule, where players are not allowed to be more than a certain distance behind the baseline

This. However, I'd also advocate for every journalist who publishes images of that to be banned for life from his profession. Then the BBC will create some new jobs for the young Brits.
