Many will remember the rash of disastrous late and first-round withdrawals that plagued the slams especially the back-to-back opening-round mid-match retirements that occurred on Wimbledon Centre Court. It certainly did not paint the sport in a great light particularly when it unfolded at one of the most famous venues in all of sports. Thankfully the Grand Slam Board has come up with two changes to help greatly reduce the chances of such an ugly scenario happening again.
Some of the game’s current players are incomprehensibly wonderful ambassadors of the sport. They are unlikely to vanish once they hang up their rackets. It would be good however to think that whoever the current batch of best players is and whatever period it may be that they will lead the way and encourage others to preserve the majestic originality of tennis and every aspect that makes the ATP and WTA tours such a privilege to observe year in year out.
