Get rid of it/Bring it back

There is a popular Australian Football show on the radio on Saturday mornings, which features a segment where they talk about which new aspects of the game have changed it for the worse, and which old aspects of the game should be brought back.

I thought it would be interesting to create a thread about tennis based on that idea.

Here is an example:


Sleeveless tops - get rid of them!

Wooden rackets - bring them back!

Re: Get rid of it/Bring it back !!!

Okay hate every suggestion here so far...lol!

No to wooden racquets.

Love sleeveless tops - if the guy has the body to wear them.

Love final set tiebreaks in the US Open.

And short shorts - good grief, no way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wooden raquets, NO.

US Open Tie Breaks, NO.

Sleeveless tops, Yes. As long as guys with fat arms like Mirnyi and Moya don't get to wear them.

3 days to play the 1st round at the US Open - get rid of that.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
