Re: Remove the warm up time with the opponent before singles and doubles matches

Its just weird not to warm up with the opponent. Plus possibility of injury. Takes away some of the mental game. Throws in uncertainty Etc. Plus too much tinkering with tradition in a sport where tradition matters.

What if alternatively, for all matches that are televised, the starting time of the match will be moved 12 minutes earlier. Instead of a 12 noon start, start the warm up at 11:48, so that actual play beings when television comes on at noon?
