Do you think No-Ad scoring is good for tennis? Vote in the poll!

No-Ad scoring is used primarily for doubles matches at the moment, but in recent times more and more exhibition tournaments have also started to include them.

Do you think No-Ad scoring is good for tennis?

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

This I am deffo 100% against. It introduces luck to the game, and its not nice at a crucial moment in the match when at deuce a team double faults or hits an error and then they end up losing the game/match.

i've seen it in antwerp, saw lots of doubles there, and it was actually pretty cool.
players don't seem to mind it either
i don't think any of the teams won or lost by being lucky....

Actually I don't know if it is good or bad for tennis, but I don't like it. I mean, I like it when you have a struggle to get to the point that can bring you to the game point, see what I mean? Now, at 40-40, that's more chance than really game construction that can make you score... But they say it makes the game last less time, and it brings dynamics, so ...

A player told me once, when I asked her what she thought about it: "well, with no ad and super tie break, I play less and I'm paid as much, so...." lol

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Agreed!

But the idea is that they think people don't like doubles, so they want to make IT shorter. The problem IMO is you cannot like if they don't show you, and TV coverage of doubles is beyond zero....

I never thought about it like that actually. I guess the players don't mind but for us fans it totally sucks.

And I agree *Jool*... men's matches are too long.

you're absolutely right .
that's a huge problem in this sport - all credit/mediatization is given to singles players . be it for their skills and/OR looks ( ) .
I know it's pretty normal but such a difference is disrespectful to doubles players AND amateurs .

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

Re: Do you think No-Ad scoring is good for tennis? Vote in the poll!

Speaking on a (mostly) personal level, I find mens doubles very exciting at Grand Slams. Infact we get a fair amount of mens doubles coverage here (in relation to singles), and because there is so many well defined teams each with their own style it really makes for some good viewing. On the women's side it seems to really lack behind, and I really don't think you can blame that on poor crowds. I think there needs to be a boost in funding at the Wta level to increase the quality of doubles overall. I don't see how No-Ad scoring was meant to make increase the quality of ladies doubles.

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Such a good idea
I dont like the idea of no ad scoring for me it is one of the most stupid rules ever
Other thing that I dont like it is that in YEC only four teams are in,would be better to have 8 teams,like the ATP doubles.

With a score of 20 to 0, I guess we can say that "NOBODY HERE LIKES NO AD!!!"
