Default Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Something I was wondering about recently...what places are players allowed to play for? Because sometimes players seem to represent places that aren't actually countries, e.g. Puerto Rico. Who decides what territories get to be separate, is it the ITF, individual countries, something else? Could a player represent a nonexistent country if they convinced the right people to let them?

I guess, as tennis is an olympic sport, any country which has an olympic committee.

I think you can represent an area with a an own tennis federation, just like there are four football associations and national teams for UK in football. Then again, I don't know who decides which areas can have a national tennis federation.

Also, in Olympics you can't necessarily represent your area unless it has a national Olympic committee. That's why there was Team GB in the Olympic football unlike in other football tournaments.

S.Q. about wheelchair tennis. Why does Wimbledon have only doubles unlike other slams that have also singles?

Wild guess is wheelchairs are not good for the grass and they compromise by only having doubles.

Wild guess: Because of the longer matches in doubles with its 5 sets aren't enough time and courts available?

Why wasn't a bomus match put in centre court under the roof today?



Robson seemed an obvious choice.

Sorry if this has been asked before. I haven't read the whole thread.

I know players aren't going to eat a big meal directly before a big match, but I'm sure they need to an hour or two ahead of time.

How do they prepare when they end up waiting several hours longer than scheduled because of longer than expected matches and/or rain delays?

They need enough fuel to get through a possible 3+ hour match.
