RG causes a bit of chaos for 14 full days, PSG just for a few hours once a week or so.

I agree. I they have used hawkeye in 2013 and prevented Pascal Maria's stealing points with his incorrect overrules, Novak would have had his rightful RG for a long time already.

stephen_marshtx You know who doesn't hate rain? Jack Sock.

He loves the stuff. Rain can transform a best of five match into a best of three and a best of one against a player who is a bit more fit. Enough rain delays at the right time he might win the whole tournament.

If they got in touch with the ATP/WTA or RG, I'm sure a player and there camp would probably rent it if it's that close...

What I would give to be living near slam events, or even any atp events.
There are people travelling across the world to Wimbledon, RG etc., and there are people who can't stand it.

I hope you also hold views on Djokovic's unfair ball bouncing, fake MTO and extra time between points advantages...

It's not about the first or the second semi, but about the case when the second semi instead of finishing late in the Friday evening under the roof or the lights, has been postponed for Saturday, giving another finalist unfair advantage.

There should be a obligatory day off before the GS final for both players or for none.

So, if you can't afford the lights for whatever the reason, postpone the finals for Monday.

As for the light and roof criticism, I do agree though. I don't really mind it this time as Djokovic tards will have a huge meltdown if his match is delayed and he ends up losing that or the next match
