Default Instant replay at Wimbledon...

First equal pay for the sexes then a retractable roof and now instant replay will be used at Wimbledon in a few weeks.

Equal pay I call progress. The other two seem like change and I HATE change. :redhot:

Actually, I think the equal pay sounds fishy....aren't the women still playing best of 3 while the men play best of 5?

The pay should be commensurate with the work...so the men should get more, or the women should play best of 5 as well (that's my choice!).

Of course, I haven't really watched tennis in years, so maybe I don't know what the hell I'm talking about

I could buy this but IMO...the women's game is superior to the men's game. I'll take 3 sets of women's play over 5 sets of men's play.

Just like you'd take 3 quarters of NFL football over 4 quarters of AFL football.

Agree - the women ARE professional tennis these days - more competition, more marketability, etc. I mean, honestly, the way you guys go ga-ga over Maria Sharapova....
