Thumbs up If You Love Tennis & You Hate RR - Please Sign Here

If you agree with the sentiments I have expressed on this petition, please sign it and leave (if you wish) an appropriate comment (please keep it clean and constructive). I would like to get as many signatures as possible and send this to the relevant people before this "meeting" of the minds. Thanks for your time and hopefully support.

http://www.petitiononline.com/nomorerr/petition.html

If you have a blog or run another board, please feel free to post the link there too so we can get as many names backing this. Thanks again.

Edit...
Thanks for all the support for this so far everyone, and special thanks to anyone else spreading the word to their blogs or other boards. I'm not naive enough to think this petition alone will bring about any change, but I feel that given EDV so readily tells us about all the research done in SUPPORT of RR, I feel it is only right we try and put together our own numbers of those against it.

I am also in the process of contacting some tennis news outlets who hopefully may give more light or exposure to those of us who are unhappy with what is happening to tennis at the moment.

And as GWH has said, this petition alone is not enough, sending individual and constructive letters to the ATP will also let them know how we feel. The petition is simply for a quick way for as many people as possible to attach their sentiments to this cause and get it out to them.

I would love to know their numbers and their research, I haven't found them, hopefully they will reveal them to us. What the numbers were, what the questions were and to whom, where and when were this surveys/questions administered.

I don't know what kind of figure will be enough for them to at least sit up and take notice to a simple petition started and seen through in the space of just a couple of weeks, but MTF has 25k members and many of us here are also part of splinter tennis boards and blogs, so I'm sure we can put up an impressive number in a short amount of time.

When I send them these details, I will also include a variety of links from MTF & KOC where we have all discussed the pitfalls of RR when it was first talked about being introduced. Please send me any other links from other boards via PM, and I shall also add them.

They may not read them, they may not care. But at least we will have collectively let them know what we think about it all. Thanks.

I urge as many people as possible to sign this and pass it to others to sign if they would be interested in doing so.

Re: If You Love Tennis & You Hate RR - Please Sign Here

It's definitely worth signing. It's all very well complaining about something, but unless you try to do something about it nothing will change. This whole Blake situation in Las Vegas is shocking. I'm going to add my name and send the link to as many tennis boards as possible.

Re: If You Love Tennis & You Hate RR - Please Sign Here

I put it on my forum where everyone is totally against this RR mess from the beggining ! I'm sure they'll sign !

I'll also put it on my blog hopin it will bring more people... considering it is the second source of info about Korolev (the other being his official website) I think it will have an impact !

According to De Villiers.......

"It is clear that fans like round robin but unless we can find a way to ensure that withdrawals don't unfairly affect the outcome of group, I'm afraid round robin will fail."

Re: If You Love Tennis & You Hate RR - Please Sign Here

I will sign it and add it to my blog this evening.

For those who live in the US, you may also want to call the ATP, the USTA, and The Tennis Channel. I realize that to call Florida, NY and California is too costly for many people's budgets so the petition would be better for you, but if you have cell phones with lots of free minutes for the entire US, a call makes a larger impact.

If you do call, please be respectful. I do a lot of lobbying in Washington and know that if the caller is disrespectful, their call isn't taken seriously. Also keep it short and to the point.
