Luggy and Dallas, you have to see the Twitter conversation I'm having with Cahill. He's really into it! Too long now to post here  :)) lol

I've read it.  I'm glad he's actually responding and you all are having a 'conversation'! :thumbs-up:

I had many good ones, but this might be my best shot of the night.

So basically speed up the game so Roger can win more slams and prevent Rafa from winning any more. It's important to protect Rogi's status as GOAT for ATP revenues.

So basically, no.

This (June 06, 2012) might be the first time I sounded the alarms. While everyone else was screaming EPIC! at the top of their lungs, I was saying this:

It's worth noting that logistical problems are to some extent a function of the powers that be wanting to give tennis fandom "what they want:" long rallies (right?!). I think they ought to be careful, because I think there are diminishing returns to this philosophy. IMO the 6 hours it took Nole to beat Rafa in Melbourne was ridiculous. These guys have proven to be indefatigable. I can't see this being a good thing in the long run.

People are getting turned off by +5 hour matches courtesy Nole, Rafa, and Murray. The AO is fed up with it, too. They sped up the courts.

So now we have 2 examples of the powers that be identifying the length of the men's matches as being problematic.
1. The AO quickened the speed of the surface
2. The ATP is enforcing the 25-second rule - if it weren't for Nole and Rafa, no one would care about the damn thing, as it's gotten no attention for years.

Tennis is a lower teir sport in the States and one of the few untimed sports in our sport culture. If these guys can't get the job done in a reasonable amount of time, the networks -- who've never choosen to cover men's matches in their entirety unless there are no other options (because they're too long for network TV) -- are going to move the end of their matches to one of their cable outlets (smaller audience) so that they can get to their regularly scheduled programming.
