Re: How to get rid of servebots

How do you stop servebots?

Slow down the courts.

They did that.

Servebots don't win anything anymore.

This is a myth by people who didn't watch tennis not so long ago. There were plenty of slow courts in say 2003 but there were equally as many neutral and fast courts.

Get rid of the tiebreaker, even the first set, win the set by 2 games, you'll see servebot go a long match then the next day, he'll be too tired to play and be the easy ripe for a bad serve day.

So how does having only one serve stop height being an advantage when serving?

Re: How to get rid of servebots

We need more servebots and more tournaments where they can win. I want to have more variety in tennis and not only one kind of allround player.

Cause serve becomes like every other shot, if you make 1 mistake its a point for your opponent. They still have advantage but we wont be watching ace fests.

That's really not gonna happen. A top player capable of boosting a powerful first serve will diminish his serve by let's say 10% to allow himself to keep causing trouble to the opponent's return, and will continue to serve aces most of the times. It will be worth any risk. I dare say they would become even more dangerous.

The weaker players with imprecision in a powerful serve will be forced to diminish their serve by much more, basically casting a second serve each time. The opponents will use this weakness against them and win even faster.

The players you call "servebots" will perform even better, while the players with a powerful, yet unstable first serve will suffer, despite their game being concentrated in other areas too.

This move would transform ATP into a WTAesque type of tennis where most of the games are breaks.
