Re: Mr Disney De Villiers welcomes MTF suggestions to reform the ATP

I got this suggestion from Michelleg.

There will be Federer or Nadal plastic figures in our McDonalds Happy Meals for the US market.

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 De Villiers welcomes MTF suggestions to reform the ATP

Tournament winners are decided by MTF polls.
The top 3 becomes:
1/ Safin
2/ Federer
3/ Tursunov

Re: Mr Disney De Villiers welcomes MTF suggestions to reform the ATP

With the latest ATP farce with changing the rules in the format to allow Blake to make the QFs, when he lost against Korolev and under the rules Korolev should be in the QFs.

Mr Disney decides the tournament winners, but whether they support his ideas or not.

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 De Villiers welcomes MTF suggestions to reform the ATP

Which ever player knows the words to the Mickey Mouse theme song will make the semi finals at least and will have a sing off to win the event.

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".

Hwakeye system will be followed unless popular players disagree with the system verdict. By definition, popular players must be more accurate. (Credit to atheneglaukopis for this excellent idea)

Re: Mr Disney De Villiers welcomes MTF suggestions to reform the ATP

Courtesy of TBE

* All top players will be issued a get of jail card or joker card to use during a tournament if they lose in the early rounds, so they can come back in at the quarter final stage.

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".
