Nice work Greppers, we await more 3 set epics :-)

45mph wind predicted for Saturdays E2, block headwind out, tailwind back. I’ve only got a 58 on the front.....

Ah.

9. (a) The MENS LEAGUE teams will consist of three pairs. Each pair will play ONE professional set against each pair of the opposing team. A professional set will be won by the first pair to reach 8 games with a 2 game lead. A tie break will be played at 8-8 if necessary.

It’s all proper international stuff. Rule 7 is a cracker.

7. All matches must be played within 15 miles of Chelmsford Shire Hall.

So a professional set = 8 games, unlike the T20-esque 6 game hit and giggle jobbies that the likes of Federer and Murray play.....

Yes it's weird, isn't it?

That said, the NextGen (sp?) thing for U23s has a 'short set' format - up to 4 I think - which is even odder.

Here we go. This is from the 2017 iteration I believe:


That's the reasoning behind one of the most noticeable innovations to be tested during the inaugural Next Gen ATP Finals, to be held 7-11 November.

Matches in Milan will use a shorter format: best-of-five set matches, but the sets will be first to four (with a tie-break at 3-3), and games will feature no-ad scoring.

I watched a lot of the 2018 tournament on the telly. It really is T20 with fluffy yellow bastards.

Seems all about faster and shorter matches.

Feels like the world is full of short attention spans.

Got home late so took a rest morning.
