The 'no let-rule' trial at Challengers is (Won't continue on after next week)

Source: "tennisalternative.com":

"This tournament is the first one on the ATP Challenger Tour, which is played with a so called “no let-rule”. This means that there will be no replay of serve if the ball the touches the net. It is part of an experiment run by the ATP for the next three months. At the end of this time the association will decide if the new rule will be introduced on the ATP World Tour as well."

Did you know? What do you think about it? It would make service game little bit faster, with more return winners as well...

Re: Heilbronn Challenger 2013 - 'no let-rule'

I think they used it in Sao Paulo a couple of weeks ago. Was watching the end of a match (for tennis tipping), and I saw someone running to catch a let serve.

Re: Heilbronn Challenger 2013 - 'no let-rule'

The rule makes sense IMO. They've been using it in NCAA tennis for a long time

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Bullshit rule that will hopefully never be implemented in a World Tour.

Re: Heilbronn Challenger 2013 - 'no let-rule'

I have no idea why lets were introduced in the first place. Always seemed like a bit of a waste.

Also bring back the underarm serve. I'm sure the girls would do better if they didn't have to overhead their serves, as is expected right now. (I realise it's not a rule, but it's enforced ethically.)

Re: Heilbronn Challenger 2013 - 'no let-rule'

as for the rule itself, i like it as a spectator

and it adds up drama if the ball is foul it can be advantage either for server or receiver

Re: Heilbronn Challenger 2013 - 'no let-rule'

Oh, oh. What about allowing a receiver to play a fouled serve? I've seen so many good winners off of faulty serves. I sometimes wonder why players can't make those shots in general play. This is a bit of a tricky suggestion as it would be difficult to tell if a guy is playing the serve or just going through the motions.

Re: Heilbronn Challenger 2013 - 'no let-rule'

I was strongly against getting rid of the let rule, and I still am in a certain way. I think that the electronic signal should be removed from the net. I have seen so many serves, that were clearly over the net, called a let by that stupid machine. Many players complain about, the servers and the returners.

Here is what I think should happen:

1) Get rid of the let sensor.
2) The let rule should only be enforced if a ball touches the net and then falls over to the other side.
3) If ball touches the net but continues to land in like a normal serve, then play on. Watch these 2 consecutive points starting at 15:47:

Re: Heilbronn Challenger 2013 - 'no let-rule'

I kinda like this idea, for two reasons:

1) It can break up the game and make things more fun/unpredictable on serve

2) It speeds up the game a bit.

IMO tennis' biggest problem is how slow the game is. If you watch a three hour match between Nole/Rafa probably 15/20 minutes of that match the ball was actually in play. This really sucks as a viewer

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray - The Tactician
