No change. Things are fine the way they are. If I'm serving and it hits the tape, I WANT another crack at it! I don't think this rule slows the game down too much. Why does tennis need to be played faster anyway?

Interesting article regarding merits of no let calls (option 2) is here.

I haven't seen any articles yet discussing option 1 - calling lets during normal play (as well as service).

Interesting. I am not sure, to be honest. I've never thought of it that way. Why is a net cord allowed in a rally but not during a serve??

I guess I'll stay with the "it's not broken, so don't fix it philosophy." If they changed it now, I think too many people would just be confused and forget the ball was live (both the server and the receiver).

Hmmmmm...

If you ever played competetive tennis you will know that hitting a let serve is way more frequent than hitting a return let. If you have a good serve and often hit it just milimeters over the net, let cords will happen quite often.

In my mug carrer for example, I would hit some 10 let serves before 1 let return. Let returns are very rare in fact...unless you have a great day
Or just look at the pro matches - you see a let serve almost every service game, sometimes even 2 in a row (or 3 in a row in extereme cases), while let returns happen only a few times.

That´s true, but not all let serves would end up in favor of the server, some of them would bounce high and be sitting ducks for the returner to take a swing at.

It doesn't matter which player benefits, the luck factor still increases dramatically. Making serve lets playable would be incredibly stupid.

Also, lets hit during a point are usually a lot easier to track down since players are already in motion. When you're in the return position it's almost impossible to get to a ball even if it lands halfway up the service box.

I´ve played a junior tournament in 1999 with the no let rule and it sucked, so no thanks

The pros hit a LOT of let serves, and a fast ball that's skimming off the net makes it even harder for the returning player to get it back. I say keep the rules as they are.
