there were times when YEC was treated with way more respect and given far more importance.......those battles of becker, sampras, ivanisevic, lendl, borg etc. certainly helped this tournament gain a meaningful existence.......

homogenization of surfaces and disappearing variety in the last 7 or 8 years have certainly shifted the sport of tennis a lot more towards baseline duels......

the game has become physically a lot more demanding and the match-lengths have started to increase.......that increased the average time spent by players in matches through out the year and there was a significant amount of increase in workload noticed......

all that lead to a lot more wear and tear and players walking into the WTF in hopeless condition with all sorts of injuries and stuff......

it's not for nothing that the tournament is now widely remarked as "world toast finals" pointing out the stupidity of its timing......

another reason contributing to the reducing significance of the tournament is that there's no constant place for the event......the nomadic tournament is moved every once in 3 years to a different city......

all this is giving an impression that the players don't really give too much importance to this event and play it only for the heck of it and for some loose cash at the end of the season......it was too obvious in the 2011 edition......

only those players who saved some energy for this event and less spent through out the year seem to be doing well in this namesake season end event......

not only discuss this topic but also feel free to think of solutions to get this tournament back to where it once was in players' minds......

shut it, i din't mean to make it a comparison thread......if i wanted to, i would have gladly said,

5 best of 5 sets WTF titles in better competition >>> 6 most of which best of 3 sets titles(chicken titles) in weak competition with worn out players

i wanted to collect some suggestions for the improvement of the tournament......

I was suspecting that this was too much logical for start da fail and it all became clear with the jab to Federer´s win.

Get over it nutter.

SdG, you and other Nadaltards only hate WTF because Nadal sucks in it and gets owned. Stop moaning about it and just accept that your hero will never get his hands on that trophy.

such a sour bunch, it's almost ridiculous, shit......i have been criticizing this damn event ever since the end of us open and i am accused of being sour and whatnot......with this kind of oversensitive nonsense, i am disinterested and demotivated to enter GM these days......

go ahead you ultra sensitive clowns, cry with mods and destroy every single thread which is capable of generating innovative ideas and healthy discussions......

didn't realise you were physically so rotund that you could refer to your unique observation as "widely remarked"

It lost its charm already after 96 when Becker retired. All WTF since have not really lived up to the old days, but same thing happened to Wimbledon in 2000s when serve and volley died.

Anyway, you gotta love TMC 2005.

Hah Ha Ha ..SdG at it again...this guy is a treat..roger made me happy last night and SdG is making me laugh tonight...Tks!

And now, on topic...u spoke about the times of lendl or borg. Tell me , pls, when did u start watching WTF? Judging by your behaviour, I highly doubt u'v lived to witness the times of borg, jmac and lendl.

So this tells me this is a hater-troller thread...

Put your hand on the Holly Bible and tell me i am wrong :)

I like WTF exactly like it is :)


Let the atp officials judge that by the tv market shares , audiences worldwide and by taking into account the players' opinnions.

Propose solutions to rebrand WTF ...Ha Ha Ha...

U really made my evening, u little troll :)
