Agree with this. But if the ATP sped the balls and courts up to shorten the points, it would help.

Can't hold back the progress of the tennis stick tech - golf tried and got destroyed in court.

And since these 'discussions' always come back to Nadal, his 8 hr practices with ankle weights, probably did more to him than anything. Or maybe bad knees runs in the family?
