I am just saying that I don't think it would be the worst thing in the world to get rid of the second serve and eliminate all the servebots. Speed up the courts and single serves would still be a lot more effective than their current second serves. You would get a lot less aces / unreturnables but then it's more enjoyable to watch people win points with their ground games.
Yes, it would change the game substantially. But that is not necessarily always a bad thing.
Saying it would turn the ATP into the WTA is just silly talk. Do you really think that big servers is the only reason men's tennis is better than women's?
There's a whole tactical aspect in having two serves. A game with just one serve means a game where nobody risks ANY serve.
