Take away second serves, make the balls 50% bigger, slow the courts down.

Speed up the grass, speed up Montreal, slow down the clay, return Paris to carpet, bring back 5 set finals in Masters Series.

Make tennis crowds more hostile and make them boo top players.

Shouting during points for that true stadium feel. It would bring a whole new audience to the sport.

Thumbs up "Bronze Medal" or 3rd Place in Tournments

In the semis of Roland Garros this year, the big four were present and I expected all the matches to the final would be fun to watch

Djokovic vs. Federer
Nadal vs. Murray
and finally
Nadal vs. Federer

I think it would be good for the game, tournament, players and supporters to have a third place or a "bronze medal" as the case in the Olympics

wouldn't it be interesting to watch Djokovic vs. Murray competing for a third place, earning more points and extra cash?

thought ?

No. When players lose they want to go home. No one would give a shit for 3rd place. Olympics its different cause you are still competing for a medal

No. Roger, Novak and Andy are all losers. It doesn't matter who places what, all that matters is who wins the tournament and that's Rafa.

Such a bad idea that probably the ATP will introduce it and threaten a zero-pointer to any beaten semi-finalist who claims injury to drop out of the match.

No, NO, NOOOOOO!

Default Re: "Bronze Medal" or 3rd Place in Tournments

nah. It's natural for players to wrap it up when they lose. It is natural for ranking points, statistics about win/loss and pretty much everything to NOT have a third place match.

IF you have a third place match you also give an extra chance to SF players to earn more points/money. Why should they? Should losing QFists also get placement matches? This is almost like suggesting there should be a round robin like in WTF for tournaments 1st stage. It would complicate an already well-working system
