Changes to tennis

If you had the chance to make a few adjustments to tennis, the way it is now, what you would you change? E.g. abolishing the 5th set tiebreak in the U.S Open.

Re: Changes to tennis

Abolishing ALL Final set tie breaks coz if both plaers are good enough to push it to the final set then a tie break becomes luck. Unlike if its a one sided match, tie breaks prove whos actuallybetter

Nadal~Federer~Baghdatis~Tursonov

Gonzo-Safin-Hewitt-Robredo-Verdasco-Moya-Nalbandian-Roddick-Kolya

"He has no idea what he is writing anymore or who he is writing to. He just puts “lol” and moves on to the next window. The girl is probably telling him that her kittens died and he just says, “lol.” "Tursunov on Monfils

Re: Changes to tennis

I would before all like to see direct points being rewarded more than points from oponents mistake. This would maybe only dissapoint fans of Nadal and similar.
