However, the NCAA needs to look into shortening the format in order to make it more TV friendly. Maybe playing 4 singles matches and 2 doubles matches at the same time?? That way, since most of the college tennis facilities have six courts, they could use all the courts. Then, for a tiebreaker, each team selects one guy to play a 10-point tiebreaker for the match. What do you think?
Horrible idea. I think if they just skip the doubles and tape delay the whole thing you can cram it into 2 hours. Show highlights of how you got to a certain point and let it play out.
