Default Would Slams and ATP Tour be better if they were organized by MTF?

On a motorsport forum that's full of besserwissers, there was a thread about what if that forum had an own F1 team. Well this is also a forum full of besserwissers, many forumists were complaining about today's schedule. So, what if ATP Tour were run by MTF, would it be better organized. I gotta say that at least MTF would've made scheduling better for today.

Absolutely. WTA might complain, cause MTF would put them in the parking lot.

Nadal would be "drawn" with Rosol every tourney and Ferrer punished for Vulturing by being pecked at by the birds for hours.

Poor Tio Toni wouldn't be allowed within 200 miles of the match.

A five second time rule in between points. First a warning, second a point penalty, then the death penalty.

No, the greatest tournament ever, the Mens Tennis Forums Open Championship, would be played on indoor carpet.

apart from it being a very effective way to get rid of the WTA altogether, we would probably screw it up more than they do now at the USopen.

I for one would get rid of the seedingsystem, because that to me is the reason we get the same boring qf lineup all the time (with a few exceptions ofc.). Imagine r1 being Nadal-Federer :P

I'd pay good money for a seat at that tournment. And the TV-ratings would be through the roof.

Also maybe it could be played over 7 sets and with a ball that doesn't fluff at all and is heavy. I'm thinking something like a baseball. And the rackets must now have metall strings and if you get hit by a ball you could get severely injured or die

No warning. That's for women and WTA. It's point penalty right away. then death

Somebody should post this thread to players planning to boycott AO, MTF Open could be the alternative event.

All the members could donate 100 bucks so Stakhovsky finally buys that Ferrari after losing in first round.
