I would love to see a big "shot clock" timer for between points so the umpire can't pretend they're taking less than 25 seconds. Give each player 4 "extensions" per set, but make 'em move it along in general.
I couldn't agree more. Better yet, warning, point penalty, etc. That would get their attention. A visible court-side clock is a good idea. Can you imagine Steffi ever
getting a time violation called?
