Suggestion for Shanghai

Postby Togtdaylttai » 19 Oct 2008, 19:37

I think that for Shanghai, the higher ranked player should be able to choose the surface for each match. I'd like to see this happen in real life too, but it's not exactly feasible...Whatcha think?
Record (since coming back from ban): 24-6
#19 (Too bad I got myself banned, otherwise I'd be #11, even without the tournaments I missed)
Winner: Banja Luka, Vienna
F: Paris
SF: Newport, Bucharest, Beijing, Tokyo, Basel
QF: Wimbledon, Indianapolis

Well i think there shouldnt be any such privileges for the higher ranked player.I mean what did the poor lower ranked player do to deserve this lol.Why should the lower ranker opponent have the surface disadvantage ,doesnt make sense to me.There should be only one surface which all the players play on ,irrespective of their rank....then it will be a fair competition :D
