A real RR poll for Mr Disney to talk about!

deVilliers continues to talk about how the fans like round robin and the system just needs to be tweaked to make it work. Nobody has ever actually seen where he is getting all this positive fan reaction from. So lets give him a straightforward poll that he can take to the meeting in Miami and quote to his heart's content! I know some of you may have already signed the online petition to drop RR elsewhere. But since the petition is only people who oppose RR, Mr Disney can always say that the fans of RR are still out there but are just not as forceful.

Since MTF probably has as many tennis fans in one place as you will find anywhere, this is the place to let him know how real tennis fans think about it. Any fans of the RR format have the opportunity here to stand up and be counted along with those who hate it. Then the ATP can make the final decision to end RR for good after seeing the results.

This poll should be public.

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

Can it be changed? I can't seem to find an option to edit a poll.

Actually, looking at the votes so far, it probably isn't necessary. I doubt there will be many votes other than NO!

I can't believe this forum predicted RR would be a failure. I think that makes us a collective 1 for 1,000,000.
