Mertov has a good article up today about the 20/25 second rule enforcement.  :coffee:

Always good stuff from Mertov!

Mertov:
Thanks guys.  Seeing that Djokovic played more tennis in terms of time-on-court & games-played in one match than Sharapova played in all four matches, it reminded me of an article I wrote on Oct 12, 2012:

Surely, Billie Jean King did not find the Djokovic-Wawrinka match boring, did she?!?!

Bad idea...but one commonly held by many. We've had this discussion every year for the past 8 years.

She probably did, Mert. Some of the ladies in my mixed doubles group were bored. As said elsewhere, I was not.

Regardless of equal effort for equal pay, I wonder how best of 5 for the WTA would impact the scheduling at the slams, which already seems tight. I was reminded of how some years ago, Lleyton Hewitt got into trouble with the Williams sisters by publicly voicing the wish that the ladies would hurry up so that we could get to the real business of the evening.

Having said that, I am really looking forward to the women's matches on 1/22 at the AO. They should be good ones.  :)
