[Nevertheless, I would say there are organisations within the UK that could do better, but that's a different debate for a different thread.]
What I meant is that according to you the actual format is wrong because british people dont get excited ¿?¿?
Ok, lets change the format of the football worldcup too because US football team is rubbish and americans dont get excited...
The format is OK, and big stars like Nadal, Berdych, Roddick took it seriously and won the title.
If UK is mostly insignificant when it comes to tennis or if Federer hasnt won it before (even when he's got a good teammate, Stan) its not a format's fault.
