It's time to scrap no-ad scoring!!!

No Ad scoring is the most pathetic, stupid, retarded thing ever implemented into the sport! Take it out now!!!

What do you guys think about this? Should we still have no-ad scoring in doubles matches?

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

Re: It's time to scrap no-ad scoring!!!

It's very unfair to have it in doubles and not singles. I would like to see full length doubles matches again. All these changes have been for the worse.

Re: It's time to scrap no-ad scoring!!!

is this because erakovic lost 6-0, 6-0 in doubles today? funny how this thread hadn't popped up untill then.

i dont mind it, it makes doubles matches quicker and more singles players seem to be playing.

No, ever since I joined this thread I have commented on how womens doubles is getting less and less attention. I've never been a fan of doubles, but surely no-ad scoring just makes doubles worse!

Re: It's time to scrap no-ad scoring!!!

It gives doubles an aspect of randomness which is really annoying. (I think as a general rule, this favors the weaker team though). Furthermore, I really don't see how this has led to more top singles players playing doubles

So scrap this no-ad system

Re: It's time to scrap no-ad scoring!!!

Doubles has gone downhill in my opinion with the third set supertiebreak. It's not as exciting for me anymore.

Now this, well it's almost like they are trying to squeeze out the doubles players on the tour. It sucks. What's next? One set doubles matches? Then what? Doubles matches will just be a supertiebreak?

Re: It's time to scrap no-ad scoring!!!

well doubles is going to get even more unpopular unless top singles players play it. thats what no ad scoring tries to encourage. lets face it black and huber dont sell tournament tickets.

That's the road tennis is going down, mind you it would probably have to go down to One set for a large number of tennis players to specialise in it.

I don't see why you don't just scrap womens doubles and just have Mixed Doubles for all Joined tournaments.

Your everyday tennis fan would have absolutely no idea who Black and Huber were yet they could probably name 8/9 of the top 10 singles players

That's true. They may as well scrap womens doubles if they're just gonna invent these rules so that the singles players don't get tired for their singles matches. That's so stupid. I wonder how Cara Black, Liezel Huber, Renee Stubbs e.t.c feel about this. The doubles game they've known for years and years and years has changed a lot in the last 2 years with these lameass new rules.

Didn't the Wta tour try and do that big upgrade of Womens Doubles last year, if anything the popularity if the tour has gone downhill since then

Larry Scott - time to get all 8 fingers out of your a$$ and retain the Wta tours credibility!

Yes, but Lindsay/Lisa still would've double bagelled the Kiwis. It just would've taken 39 minutes instead of 37.
