We need to get the old legends back to save tennis from the bunch of uncharismatic, nonamerican, 5 meters behind the baseline ballbasher clowns who are ruining the sport.

If you are over 35 you should start every set with a 1-0 lead, 40+ year olds start every set with 2-0 leads, 45+ year olds with 3-0, 50+ 4-0 and if you are over 60 you start every set with 5-0, 80 year olds start with 5-0 and 40-0 in every game. Also if an old guy comes to the tennis court with a wood raquet younger players will be forced to also use wood raquets.

- After each set the umpire will conduct a 'Simon Says' game between the players. Who wins starts the next set 1-0 up

- Hawk Eye will be replaced by public voting. Every seat will have buttons where spectators can vote 'in' or 'out' whenever a player makes a challenge

- Hip-hop music will be played during matches (note: during Robredo matches will be played classical music for obvious reasons)

- Final set will be replaced by a burping contest. To facilitate the players a beer tank will be put at the seats so players can help themselves during changeovers

If both first and second serves are faster than 200 km/h but out, the player will have 2 additional serves. If this persists, he will have as much serves as he needs to put the ball in.

Players who don't have direct entry in the "1000" events will not be in the same locker room as those who have. They will have a separate locker room that will be gated and guarded.

-The ball will be replaced with a national emblem of the country in which the tournament is being played. So in the Nethersland, players must hit tulips at each other and in India, the players must both hit a cow at each other.

-Sockcam - at break, set and match points, the camera must switch to Sockcam and focus only on the players socks so that we can see what the players socks look like in vital situations

-instead of prize money, players shall be given 5 virgins and a strip of land in the local park

-Instead of tiebreaks, the players must get their grannies to come onto the court and mud wrestle while the spectators throw their countries national emblem at the grannies (tulips for holland, cows for india)

new grand slam court surfaces-:

Australian Open - Water. The players must swim around the court as fast as possible, attempting to hit the ball before it gets wet. In the final set, sharks will be introduced into the court/pool to make the set more interesting.

French Open - In a cave. The players must play in a cave with no light, umpires or spectators.

Wimbledon - Ice. Players must play bare foot and run around the court trying to pick up the most amount of injuries possible. The player with the most injuries moves onto the next round where they withdraw. Therefore the ATP solves its problem with sceduling in SW19 cos there is only one round. Hernandez is deemed champion if its a Tuesday and Henman if its any other day.

US Open - Glue. Players are lowered onto court by a crane with fireworks and loud music. Then they must stand there for 3 hours. In the case of a tiebreak, the players must make macaroni pictures of their favourite animal and show them to their moms. Whoevers mom is happier, wins the tiebreak.

Royal Rumble SLAM!!! - all 128 players must stand on the court and hit balls at each other until only 1 person is left standing

Just so I'm clear here - the players with direct entry will be in the locked and guarded locker room?

1. Quicksand to be ze only surface. Last player to hit ze ball over ze net before sinking and dying iz declared ze winner.

2. Gunter Parche to be let loose with a knife at ze change of endz. Playerz need to avoid being stabbed until ze umpire callz time.

3. Sumo wrestling to decide tiebreakz. If Nalbandian iz playing, then just award him ze tiebreak to save ze spectatorz ze horror.

4. Elvis impersonators instead of umpires.

5. Stilts and G-strings mandatory.

6. Ballboyz and ballgirlz to be replaced by Oompa Loompas.

7. Instead of prizemoney and a trophy, winners are given a golden ticket to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.

Yes, they will have personalised rooms and the ones who don't have direct entry have to stay in a tent.

The French Tennis Federation approves, as it is easier than building a roof.

Sticky-footed players yearn for rebound ace.

Bercy is trying to reduce the field to 32 for a TMS event, this is one Mr. Disney should agree with.

Increased ticket prices as well.
