The Real Withdrawal Story

Quite simply the fraudulent speeding up of events leads to injuries. Year in and year out the players are left in tatters by the fast court season post US Open with WTF often the walking wounded. In 2016 the ATP started making them faster, now in 2019 all faster including Asia.

If Guy Fraudget and company would just slow things down to a safer speed, the crashing and burning at the end of the season would stop plus they would have much better events. Paris was just awful today. Holding serve is almost a given. All week I've seen players sliding around on the courts like they'd been greased or something.:sneaky: Give it up. Even Federer playing less in these conditions.:cry:

Dude, I was there for the 1/8th (Thursday), and it was just simply gorgeous. I have attended to the last 5 editions and maybe my eyes are getting old, but I honestly don't see any obvious change.
I agree that all 1/4th matches sucked but you should maybe accept it's just bad luck...

Concerning the real withdrawal story, I think you should consider Nadal's record of attendance at Bercy over the last 10 years. He skipped most, and that includes many years before your supposed continuous speeding-up .

LOL. It is the slow condition and slowed down courts causing the issue.

Did you see the WTA YEC ? It was a slowed down court and every day a player retired - Naomi, Andreescu, Bencic and all players complained

Speed the courts up...they're too damned slow!!!

The schizophrenic mindset of TTW is sometimes a wonder to behold!!! :cool:
Ever since I joined TTW, I've slowly descended into madness in real life. I will see things that aren't there. Like numbers, geometric means, complex diagrams written...on chalkboards that are empty. I will see weak era mugs at the store have the audacity to be in line paying for stuff before me. I see the ghost of Christmas past (who looks like a young version of PETE), the ghost of Christmas present (Grumpy Bearded Federer) and the ghost of Christmas future (Alexander Zverev in nothing but Tommy Hilfiger and a golden chain). Nobody else sees these people, but I talk to them nonetheless. They tell me things. Important things.

My public speaking skills? Gone. Everything needs to be presented in meme formatting and meme templates. All I can think about are goats, hypothetical matches (think previous era versus current era etc), technology advancements and I feel a constant, crippling apprehension that Murray's bionic hip will fail to install the proper firmware updates to keep him competitive.

When I shut my eyes, all I can think about is TTW. What threads am I missing? What posts of utter genius are being crafted at the very moment I lazily try to sleep? How will we show through complex mathematics that Federer is the 5th or 6th best of his generation, far less of all time?

I peruse the forum morning, noon, and night, eager to uncover the countless gems and pearls of wisdom waiting to be unlocked. TTW is the greatest MMORPG I have ever taken part in. Amazing graphics, gameplay, and lore. The developers are constantly keeping us on our toes with evolving content.

Thank you, TTW.

It used to be Shanghai and TRS were 1A and 1B in speed so tomorrow we will have a final featuring a guy who couldn’t win at 1B and underachieved for him (3x) at 1A. Now he’s going for his fifth P-ercy title. Various court speeds don’t bother him and he has remained lower body injury free. Maybe the other injury prone players need better preparation???

Also, it’s perfectly natural that the tail end of the season has more physical issues mounting up. Overplaying is very much an issue.

Well WTA and ATP apples and oranges. I think Guy Fraudget loobed the court surface up himself in Paris its so shiny and slick.

WTA has it super easy at slams with best of three and the days off, but for them I imagine the weekly grind is quite brutal in this Poly Era. There matches definitely can go as long as the men. I'm a bit surprised they're not taking notes on the Milan scoring format. Anything during the regular WTA events to remove some of the grind seems like it would be rally good for their sport.

For the men its rough too and very, very hard to do something like back to back Masters like Madrid/Rome and Rogers/Cincy. Something that took the load off a bit would help, but people seem attached to the monotony of the current scoring system with the joke of tanking sets which I swear even players like Coria and Nadal were doing in their 2005 best of five clashes. I like the five sets at slams and it seems to often bring out the best play by the end of the tournament (hard to complain about the last two slam finals), but the number of matches in the last week is quite lacking with at most two matches a day (not counting both men and women).

I'd rather see a better solution for the men then ultra fast courts where holding serve is a foregone conclusion, but maybe for the women faster might shorten the length of matches and their serve games could use the help.

2. I am allergic to aluminum.

Wow, I was seriously considering having my english skills recognized by TOEIC or similar test, since I read a lot of American sh*tty sci-fy on my Kindle, spend far too much time on nonsense threads on TTW, and incidentally work for a US-based company since 4 years.

However, reading the post above has shattered my dreams to tiny bits. I didn't get a single f*ck*ng word.

I dunno what is worse: having bit like a baby dummy to the worst troll post I ever saw, or that.

I'm just making a point. Here are the hard facts on Paris:

Started in 2016.
2017 37.5
2018 34.6
2019 ????

Paris has been heading in the right direction after 2016 so will be interesting to see the latest numbers.
World Tour finals had a similar jump:


Another sign of the sheer fraudulence of the ATP is the total lack of any graphics or information on 2019. Basically the commies drop numbers once in a while, but it seems to be a big secret for the most part this year which makes it all the more suspicious.:sneaky:

I watch a lot of tennis and I can tell you that the really fast court tennis late in the year is often boring. It seems to benefit the fastest players (which still include the Big 3), but also players like De Minaur who are on the smaller side. And yet when said mobile player hits a big server well its lights out for them. Its definitely the worst part of the year for me. I'm not totally opposed to it because the giant, giant servers do not seem to have the mobility to make it deep in the events. For me the most interesting events this Fall have been the slower ones, Beijing and Vienna. Just a lot off good matches at the end of things. Generally I find it the worst viewing of the year. The outdoor hard season has heat to make it faster, but overall is slower and just tends to be more interesting.

Tremendous excitement for me with the play on tour and draw at Paris. I've found the French fans partiality over the top this year for some reason probably because it seems to have carried so many players over the line. (I don't think Tsonga wins any matches at this event without it, nor Chardy, and it really just seemed completely unfair in those matches. The indoor arena of course bolsters the fan influence.) Hopefully the final delivers some fireworks as it deserves more given the field promised.

TA actually posted serious post in effort to talk me over to the dark side of the force, but I know what I see. I am encouraged that the honorable and just Guy Forget has been backing off the speed the last few years and maybe just maybe there will be a nice Shaprize at the end of it all.:p

Agree. Moderation is the chief forethought of all good. Federer liked slow grass pretty darn well this year so I'm here to say on outdoor hard I think he might actually like 2018 US Open conditions when healthy.

I'm not totally against faster courts and I do think the Auz Open speed up at start of 2017 was very good for the tournament, thought the last two finals have been disasters.:unsure: I believe the faster conditions actually hurt Kyrgios and Tomic, but I suspect their new top prospect Alex De Minaur really, really likes the current conditions so I expect they won't be making any changes for a while.:sneaky:

I'm a Diamond Age diatribe with a LostGen wrecking ball.:D They don't always win, but I'm getting exactly what I want which is either Big 3, Thiem, or NextGen in most of the big finals this year. All 4 majors have gone as predicted. Every masters 1000 save crazy wind riddled Monte Carlo has featured these battles this year. The creme de la creme will be Shapo beating Nole in a epic match in Paris final, but I'll settle with just a good effort from both.;)

Agree the Big 4 really can handle most any condition due to their raw athleticism. They just have a speed/height combo unprecedented. Mad Lad and maybe Tsitsipas combine more height with great speed (Zedrot too really), but its still less speed. They were all astounding when they arrived and yes some of this was the perfect storm of all court tennis losing out to Poly baseline maestros (aka technology change aided the Big 4), but they were more than that.

For me Federer was so dominant coming into early 2004 that it just made the slam results a foregone conclusion, but then Nadal arrived and then it was quickly apparent that Murray and Djoko were quite special. I am very glad they dominated and Roddick was hosed by their greatness once his game went Pushdick in 2005. Frankly other than Del Potro none have been deserving of slams until this new crop of players. They may not be Big 3 great, but I think many will get results to rival or exceed Murray and its quite amazing with the Big 3 right now still holding onto high levels of play that we get to see many a showdown happen. Early 2019 teen Shapo vs Djoko in Paris final, magnifique.;)

You're totally right, when entering the arena I was discreetly proposed 50€ for cheering loudly after each point won by a french player, and a extra 50 for booing each point won by their opponent.
I was also given a Rolex watch to try and dazzle opponents with an accurately aimed reflection of the spotlights off the saphire screen. Check my video here from Tsonga vs Albot. it's pretty obvious.
And, don't repeat it, but there were indeed mass destruction weapons in Iraq back in 2003. It's only a set-up from french intelligence which made the world believe the opposite.

OP ignores the fact that first half of the season is so tragically slow, players literally starve to death in the middle of a rally.

Benoit Paire actually grew a beard DURING a match at RG. Even Diminuar grew a feeble mustache in the AO 2nd round and he hadnt even hit puberty yet at the start of that match.

Do you really want a WHOLE season of Diminuars poor effort at facial hair? With boringly slow play? And starvin marvins dropping like flies?

I didn't see this match. But I don't think it would have been a dilemma. Paire has been among the first to lose french citizenship (Sarko on ne t'oublie pas) through a national consultation following both the shoelacegate vs Tsitsi, and the Bartoli Affair shortly after. Rumors say he has been offered shelter by an association called 'Hipsters Débiles en Détresse', but has declined, arguing he could not speak freely enough about his haircuts.
Hopefully, France is full of self-contradicting, french-hating individuals. Great fan base for Benoit.

"Federer liked slow grass pretty darn well this year"
Strongly dissent.

He tolerated slow grass this year because he had no choice. Had the grass been anything like 2001, he wins in four sets over any version of Djokovic.
o_O
 
If the courts were even slightly faster, Fed wins without that fiasco. Not saying I know whether courts are being slowed or sped up (clearly no one truly knows), but fast courts like Basel are a beauty to watch. But variety is what they should strive for.

But wouldn't longer points and more "grinding" be the cause for injuries?
