shanks and 'his mtf tennis players terms'  ..-)

Tennis is more than just top players. Nadal wanting the 2 year system, I can't imagine it was for anyone else but himself.
Its already tough to gain #4 position, imagine it if it was 2 year system.

Anyway, on the REAL topic, I enjoy AO and players should 'keep it'!

In Roger's interview, he said he's aware that there are a lot of 'rumors' out there concerning what the player's discussed, but he said as long as he's the President of the Player's council - he's going to keep what the players discuss in their meetings 'in house'...meaning, he's not going to comment on any 'speculations' or 'rumors'.

So...we really don't know exactly what was discussed or agreed upon.

They should skip the AO and Wimbledon and get those s**tty surfaces speeded up. US Open also.

Yeah, in my opinion, people who think Nadal was acting on behalf of the ATP is completely wrong. Wait till Djokovic takes over the top spot. Then it doesn't matter what tennis court surface they're playing on. Nadal can't be number one. What a waste of time! I'm sure the ATP players were on to his game. Can't imagine many players supporting this other than the top 5.

I don't think Djokovic want it.
