Re: Rule Changes

The rule change was to fit tennis I to an easy television time box but the us open is reminding me that tennis can succeed even with the unpredictably long matches from 3 out of 5 sets.

The match in before Mallory Burdette had a 11 am start time. Its in the 5 the set, had a small rain delay, and at nearly 6 pm new York time its longer the is allowed for 6 singles and 3 doubles matches. And the us open brings in money.
