No. Slams are different, they're supposed to be more demanding. They're the top notch of tennis, leave them that way.

Another reason to think Worthless is a muppet. The players haven't complained about the 5 set format for the whole tournament, so why change it what for? If people have short attention spans and can't sit through 5 setters during a Slam, go watch sumo wrestling.

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".

One of the most ridiculous ideas I've ever heard.

Absolutely not. That would be terrible.
