Maybe there could be an auction for each tournament to bid for what amounts of points they can hand out for their event. The highest 7 or 8 bidders will get TMS status.
I suggested that for a quick laugh here http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=98715 but with Mr. Disney we might wake up one day and see it as part of the ATP restructuring plan.

Yes, he would see that.

Maybe there could be a boxing match between Ricci Bitti and Mr.Disney.

I suggest you hurry up and patent this idea. You might get rich one day.

Default Re: Mr Disney De Villiers welcomes MTF suggestions to reform the ATP

Here is a good suggestion: The ATP will just allocate points to events that it runs, so slams get zero points. In addition, it will try to organize anti-slams at the same time that the slams happen. That will be the "super-duper slam 2000 series".

Perhaps Mr. Disney has a secret crash for Ricci Bitti and all this noise is an attempt to get some attention

I don't think alfonso would take them both on as we know he loves Mr. Disney, but not sure if would have a threesome with Ricci Bitti and take one for the team.

Default Re: Mr Disney De Villiers welcomes MTF suggestions to reform the ATP

De Villain steps down from his position. All members of MTF are knocked out and wake up several hours later on ATP Island. There is a ritual. A new method of deciding who runs the ATP: THE SHORTEST MEMBER OF MTF MUST BE THE LEADER! Naturally, I win, being 4'6". I deem all current rules and regulations invalid. In fact, I trash tennis. A new sport is created — Teacher Tennis. This game is played in school hallways everywhere. Two teachers are put into large plastic bubbles with scalding hot cups of tea. The spectators begin to roll the teachers around. The teachers attempt to stop the scalding hot tea from spilling. 99.9999999999999999999999999% of the time, the teacher fails. The tea is spilt everywhere. The end result is that both teachers are badly burned and one teacher strongly desires to hurt the other.

Here's a suggestion: Davydenko must be allowed to give a 'Putin-esque' speech at the end of every grand slam QF he makes it to. By addressing Marxism to the masses, slowly but surely, ATP will yield to the ways of the fans, thats us! Vamos!

Default Re: Mr Disney De welcomes MTF suggestions to reform ATP, in light of banning Entry Li

Mr.Disney has done it again. He has decided that tournament Entry Lists can't be published anywhere before the tournament site gets around to it.

Of course he would be against something that is helpful to fans and media alike.

- People who can guess 4 players on the Entry List will get a 10% discount on tickets.

- Draw will be done by playing pin the tail on the donkey.

-Forbid showing oop into public places, fans should go blindly on courts

-Livescores from any event (except top10 players matches) should be not allowed

-Any TV coverages/livestreams (except top10 players matches) should be forbidden

- Instead of deuce and advantage each player must carry a paintball gun in their pocket. When the score reaches deuce they must draw and the first to get a hit wins the game.

- The E4 (Tv station) concept of second chance Sunday is created for Roger Federer. If he loses before the final of a tournament he gets a second chance on Sunday evening, whoever is the tournament winner must immidiately beat Federer to be crowned true champion.

- Hurdles are placed on the service lines so that when a drop shot is hit the player must jump them to get to the ball.

- The tennis ball is replaced by a small bomb, last player left alive after the explosions is the winner.

- A new format for tournaments. ATP players have to form partnerships and play doubles, at the end of each match the crowd chooses one player from each team to advance into the next doubles match. When it comes to the final doubles match the crowd pick just one player to be the winner.

- Andy Roddick serves bombs next to the lines and players each guess whether the ball landed in or out. Hawkeye is used to show who was correct.
