In spite of the bitching by cry baby Dull this rule change has worked well. After a few early moans most players have adapted and play is generally a bit quicker than it was which is a good things for fans.

You remember it so vividly exactly because it's a rare occurrence. For Nadal, cheating is a daily ritual on the tennis court. Hence, him bitching about the rule is ridiculous.

They all have their bad aspects, what matters is whether that actually affects the quality of play or not and whether the opponents allow for it to distract them

In general, the 25 seconds rule is good, otherwise we would be treated to slugfests like the Nadal/Djokovic AO 12 final time and time again, the faster players learn to play, the better it is for the sport.

It's a very respectable your opinion but Rafa and me believe that there should be not a rigid rule.

I repeat, Roger hates hawk-eye, when hawk-eye is very fair to me. I would love something like hawk-eye in football. Should we bash him for hating haw-eye? Oh, we could do that: "Olderer is a powerful player, a legend, so obviously he wants that a frightened umpire make always the call, hawk-eye is a very objetive rule for his own interest"

Anyway, every silly & little detail is good for bitching about the same guy so whatever.

Federer argues with the umpire maybe once a year, and Miami 2009 was the only time he smashed a racket since what, 2000 or 2001?

He doesn't like hawkeye but he uses it, and he uses it better than he did in 2007/2008.

Well the difference is that Roger might be vocal about his dislike of hawkeye but he speaks only for himself, Rafa is saying that it will harm the fans and that most players aren't happy with it.

Same as when he was agreeing with the 2-year ranking idea, it's silly and will only benefit the top players, Federer actually spoke against it and with reason since he knows that it will make it harder for up and comers to break into the top of the game.

Look, I love Rafa but he's been mistaken about a lot of things regardless of rules in tennis and should be called on that when he does, Roger might be a self centered arrogant fool but he doesn't look to bend the rules to suit his own game even if he's losing more and more of his abilities with time.

Hawk-Eye detracts from sport

And for me Hawk-Eye protects lowered ranked players. If football had something like Hawk-Eye Real Madrid and Barça would finish La Liga with some points less every year, there is no doubt, so if Hawk-Eye is implanted some day Madrid and Barça will say the same stuff that Roger: Hawk-Eye is bad for sport because fans love refereeing controversies...

Hawkeye would only be used in football for when balls went over the goal line, right?

That would be true if hawkeye was universal but in reality it is only used in the bigger tournaments and only in the main courts so it tends to benefit higher ranked players more because they are the ones playing in those venues time and time again

I don't think that an umpire is more scared of Garcia Lopez than Istomin for example, so if he is wrong in any call sure would be fairly random. But playing Federer against other not top four player for example there are more chances of any bias from the umpire calls, and if you don't think that's you're very candid person.

Same with Rafa or Nole or Murray . And most of the time the lower ranked players aren't used to hawkeye so they don't know how to use it, it would be absolutely fair if it was an universal measure.

25 seconds for all matches all tournaments, Hawkeye for all courts. It's only fair.
