You have a point sembilan about taking too much time in between points.
Maybe the ATP tour should put a large timer similar to the ones that detect serve speed.
1) It enables players themselves to know how much time they are taking.
2) When the world sees that you are breaking a rule, it would more or less be a deterrent factor for players to keep doing it.

That's the thing, someone needs to actually enforce it, they have the rule, it's 20 seconds for grand slams and 25 for normal tournaments (if I'm not mistaken).

I'd understand if they take longer time after a long rally, but for example, a match between Djokovic and Nadal, both of them would be hitting back and forth for a large part of the match (since both of them are super defensive and plays a retrieving game for the most part) and then take 30+ seconds to serve (there's actually quite a number of articles out there about the time taken during the Australian Open 2012 final).

i have no gender bias but simply would not watch women tennis. Tell the truth, if williams not on form but injury free at any time, they are still the favourite in Wimby.

Women tennis post Williams & Henin is just pathetic... Even Clijter a mum can still win slams after delivery.

Agree with u all, they definitely need to buck up and STOP SHREAKING!!!!!!!! I dont want my neighbor think i m watching porno when Maria n Vika are playing!!!!

Don't be so petty la.

Matches which consist of long rallies, really do take up a lot of energy. Those who had played long rally matches for almost every single point will be sure to second this. Yes, they could be professionals but so what??? Professionals are still human after all. They ain't no robot/machine. Give them a break la, will ya??? It's just a couple of seconds.

Afterall, the longer break there is between points would allow the viewers to go tandas kencing/berak/ta fei kei/ciggy break without missing a single piece of action. While the players benefit, the viewers would also benefit ma. Win-win situation.

Learn some patience la. doh.gif

"No salah". Massage & PRC are just community services to all. Without them, the statistics of rape cases will sure go up. Sometimes we need sins to mellow the sinners biggrin.gif

There's also a control button on the astro controller labelled "MUTE". If you don't like the "Aaahh" sound coming from those female players, then, just 'mute' it. Simple as that. No need to change or enforce new rules & so on. Life is filled with rules, rules & rules already & let's not make things more complicated la. rclxub.gif
