Another rule change designed to the improve the sport concerns the pre-match warm-ups. Administrators and pundits alike have been searching for ways to speed up the sport and they have a logical place to shave off some time when it comes to the warm-ups. Players will now be expected to meet at the net in a more timely fashion and adhere to the chair umpire's command when “time” is called or face a hefty financial penalty. The match is the main event after all so if any unnecessary dillydallying can be cut so much the better.
Also don't get stuck in your tennis shoes all day when you're in between matches. Get a pair of flip flops or off-court shoes that you feel comfortable in so you can give your feet some reprieve between matches. It'll give your feet and tennis shoes a chance to dry out as well which helps fight the onset of those pesky blisters.
Created with the versatile all-court player in mind the new RADICAL series offers the perfect combination of power control and spin for all player types. Thanks to the introduction of the innovative Graphene Touch technology the RADICAL PRO now offers an incredible touch and a solid dampened feel. Recommended by Andy Murray the most aggressive racquet of the series also features a new exciting design and an upside-down logo execution that perfectly represents the silo's versatility. If it is even more power you need then you will love this heavier frame and the fact that this racquet can be equipped with a longer pro-player cap for a very powerful and unique feel.
Overall this would seem to be a great plan but it is not without its drawbacks. The biggest of those drawbacks is that with the event only being staged over one week at a single venue it eliminates the advantage and atmosphere of the home ties. Squads will no longer have the advantage of selecting a surface that favors them over their opponents. Furthermore the rowdy raucous and festive home atmosphere which is so hard to replicate throughout the rest of the season will likely be missing to some degree in this new format.
