Thumbs up Another marketing idea: On-court change of attire!

Reason No.1: It has been done before.
Reason No.2: It would speed up the game (compared to off-court change).
Reason No.3: ... should be obvious.

Actually this idea could be expanded too.
For example, players could be required to wear different outfits with each change.
Additionally one could have the crowd/TV audience deciding in a poll which outfit that player should wear next.
The worn clothes could be given away to the crowd, underwear included.
Of course, a bunch of cameras aiming at different body parts should be used.

What do you think?

Well, Jelena J. changed her pantys at Roland Garros this year on court. The interest here of pictures and videos was big. So why not.

Hmmm. That's an idea. I was thinking more along the lines of strip-tennis. Every time your serve is broken, you lose one item of clothing. That would definitely bring in more spectators, I mean just look at what it's done for crazy golf.

Yeah she did and got into heaps of trouble for it. I don't think it would catch on some how.

It would only be worth watching if the player was good looking

if it was Mauresmo, Williams, Henin...etc, then

If it was Sharapova, Kirilenko, Hantuchova...etc, then
