ATP dropped round-robin!

The ATP Tour have dropped the round robin tournament it seams! Very good.

Let's hope the WTA Tour don't even think about trailing it!

Thank god they did. ATP and WTA Tournaments are no place for the Mickey mouse style except in the YEC.

Re: ATP dropped round-robin!

Thank the lord. Now if we could only get the WTA to drop this "super tiebreak" before they get the bright idea to try it in singles.....

Etienne de Villiers is an idiot.
He should go back to Disney World and teach Pirates of the Caribbean how to fight in a Round Robin System or what ever. It looks like, that he wants to destroy tennis.

Hooray! If that Blake incident hadn't occurred, it may not have been scrapped yet.

Re: ATP dropped round-robin!

I don't think it's good for the head of the ATP tour to saying tennis is just about "hitting a fuzzy ball over the net". He's running a business and he shouldn't trivialize issues that could damage it.
