i agree friend. the format has problems but they can be ironed out. round robin is less watchable for me but if it increase tennis' fan base and brings in more revenue then i am for it. i am willing to sacrifice some of my own personal entertainment from some some mickey-mouse tournaments if it really will improve the prospects of the game=)
How will it improve the prospects of the game? And how will it increase the fan base? How will it bring more revenue? What we have seen so far, is that even the players are not familiar with the format, let alone the audience. MTF consists of people, who watch tennis and know more about it than the average guy. If people here don't approve and understand the format, how are you going to sell it to the "normal audience"?
Those "mickey mouse tournaments" happen to be important for some of the countries they are played in, by the way...
