Thoughts on Next Gen format of play

How do you like the shorter format of sets played in the Next gen tournament? I think playing to 4 is clearly better than to 6. There is too much of a transport corridor happening when playing to 6. When playing to 4, the games become more important. Many sports have done similar rule changes to speed up the sport.

Of course, shot clock should be mandatory, and more importantly, enforced by all umpires, in all tournaments. If everyone starts enforcing it at the same time, it will be easy.

No one wants to see Nadal wipe his sweat for 4 hours. We want action.
But Ad points are exciting, they can stay.
 
Hawkeye Live because it removes the very fallible human judges (and disputes that come with it) out of the equation. Plus, whenever there is a line call challenge Hawkeye is used to validate it anyway, so it proves it's a more credible system.

I also like the elimination of towel children. Make the players get their own goddamn towels.
