note: insulting an umpire does not bring about a similar outcome. umpires do get paid so that is not community service.


I have seen the little troll Clement in action with the ballkids, he is one of the worst in this regard.

Tommy Haas would be an excellent ballboy, though along with Clement, there are a few others who'd do well in this situation.

24 second shotclock. if the point is not over by then and if the ball has not crossed the net on your side, you lose the point.

To implement a system of apartheid where the top 10 players can only mix with other top 10 players and that they can only leave through certain doors, whereas the others have to go through numbered doors like 11-30 depending on ranking.

Oh I forgot de Villiers is from South Africa and he would be used to apartheid.

From Lee

There will be an armwrestling competition held in Las Vegas between tournament directors to decide who will get the players they wanted to play.
Fucking brilliant. That must be why he gets the big bucks.

There is a rumour that Ebeneezer Scrooge has been appointed as the treasurer for the ATP.

This is the car that they will win and travel around in.



For winning MM events, the winners will be awarded.

Give Mr.Disney a chance, at best, he will make tennis more popular for the masses.

At worst, he sucks and will get his ass kicked out eventually.

Not surprising you'd come up with a statement like this and there are more than enough reasons as to why Disney is a problem and not an asset to the ATP.

If you like cheap gimmicks then be my guest.

Replace the ugly players with models.
After all, who's interested at looking at UGLY guys hitting a ball?

On clay, the third set should be replaced by a "who slides longer" contest.

Another one: the player that gets a BH winner from Lalo is automatically disqualified from the tournament. If the BH is DTL, he's also disqualified from next week's tournament.
