So you're telling me that you wouldn't be pissed if on set point against you, your opponent clips the tape on a second set and it trickles over for an ace? During a point it happens all the time, but since its part of the game and has been a rule forever, we are use to it. Trust me, I have not talked to one player on tour since this rule was being discussed that is in favor of it. It was put in college as the "John Isner" rule, for cheating, but since D1 matches have chairs now, its not that big of a deal.

USA isn't the world you know The fact it has been 125K and the challenger prizemoney hasn't gone up since the 80s needs to be addressed.

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".

This thread is about a change in the rules, not about prize money. You are acting like these two things have something to do with eachother. They don't.

Re: New rule for first few months of Challengers next year

i like this rule
it will help to make the game more attractive to the fans, you know. not that much "dead time" between points or between serves

Re: New rule for first few months of Challengers next year

I like the rule. Should encourage more net duels, and let's face it.

What's the difference between a mid rally forehand dying on the net and a serve dying on the net?

c'mon, don't you think it's totally unfair that the FIRST point of an exchange is decided by pure luck ?

Re: New rule for first few months of Challengers next year

I don't see the difference whether it's the first shot or the thirty-first, tbh. I think it kind of adds an unpredictability factor to the sport that helps.

And why should the serve have any special dispensation that any other shot doesn't have?

Well for me the current let rule is natural, I don't see the point of the new rule except creating frustration among players

Re: New rule for first few months of Challengers next year

The difference is that there are more lets on serve's points than during an exchange because the players have all the time they want to play with precision and with little margin between the ball and the net. So the proportion of net is higher. Moreover, a net on serve would be always a point for the server (otherwise the ball is out, and it's a second serve) whereas a net in an exchange can go to both direction (the hitter or the other player). So it's more unfair. (not to mention that this new "rule" is totally USELESS)
