Rafa says that the changes proposed by Steve Simon would change the values of tennis


Rafael Nadal has written some of the nicest pages of tennis history, and he knows what it takes to create epic matches.

During a recent interview in Wuhan, the WTA boss, Steve Simon, proposed a change in the scoring system with the introduction of the no-ad scoring and the super tie-break in the decider. Steve’s point was that some matches are too long and they do not match the actual needs with people wanting faster entertainment.

Why Nadal is against the proposal

Rafa is now in Beijing where he is about to play the China Open. The Spanish legend made it clear that he is against this change for the following reasons

"The kind of matches that stay on the memory and on the history of our sport are a little bit long matches and dramatic matches that become emotional. If you want to change the values of the sport, maybe yes.

Tennis has values that we need to follow, in my opinion. All the sports need to improve and adapt to the new things. But I am not sure if that's the way; to make the matches quicker.

You need to put everything together to create a great show, to create a show (so) that the people emotionally feel involved in the match.

But I am just a player."

Rafa is 100% right. We would have lost so many epics like the 2008 Wimbledon final. Tennis would lose his Mojo
