Protest 2009 ATP changes

1. I don't like this 1000 series, 500 series, and 250 series business. Leave things as they are - Masters Series, ISG, IS events.
2. Don't fiddle with the ranking points. How can we compare players from 2009-onwards with the previously readjusted rankings? Don't Mr. Disney care about any tennis traditions?
3. Leave Monte Carlo alone you ATP fuckheads. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad: :mad::mad::mad:

Are you aware of someone within the ATP to whom we should direct our grievances? It's not much of a "protest" if we only vent within the confines of MTF. Let us know if you find some more information. To quote John Lennon:

"You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan"

He is right though, I think all the changes are pretty silly.

first of ATP is a business that is trying to make money for the players,
so majority of the players supports the changes

they're not doing this because they just want to make change, they're doing it because after long research was done, it showed they need to make changes, just because you dont like it and cant keep track of new rankings doesnt mean that the old system was better.

Oh yes... Mr. Disney & Co. are very well known for doing intensive research before trying out anything. Remember the Round Robin fiasco? ;)
