Koch never publicly admitted to performance-enhancing drug use. However, a letter to the head of the state-owned pharmaceutical company Jenapharm (which became a subsidiary of Schering AG, which is not to be confused with Schering-Plough) was discovered by researcher Werner Franke, in which Koch complained that fellow sprinter Bärbel Wöckel received larger doses of steroids than herself because she had a relative working in the company.

Especially as it's not really like ATP is the opposition is it. If people are familiar with ATP system, and you copy it they will be familiar with your system too.


It's exactly the same for men & women at the GS tournaments, so it makes sense for them to have a similar structure for everything else too...

I know that the audience that we’re all trying to gain now, which isn’t in this room, and they’re all watching us on this (points to his cellphone), that audience isn’t going to sit there and watch a three-hour match. Not going to do it.”Show me the evidence they are going to sit and watch a 90 minute match either. This is where you wish journalism was a bit more back and forth really. As I could counter what he's implying quite heavily. IPTL the revolution - flopped. Go look at what the highest rated TV matches always are, the classic long matches! Under this format any match on the verge of being a classic would be over in a match tiebreak before people have tuned in after reading about it on social media.

Eg. think about the criticism women's tennis gets if the semi's or final at a grand slam are blow outs. Under this format the sessions would always be pretty quick, that's not a good thing at all when it comes to the paying fan at the event on the day. The fans actually paying to be there aren't these millennial types with 20 second attention spans, they want to be out for a few hours, not the tennis be over in an hour.


Alot of families attend the tennis. Mum, Dad, 2 kids etc. They don't want it over in super quick time. They want a day out. Steve Simon is a total plonker.

Report n88uk July 24, 2017 1:03 AM BST
Definitely don't buy pretty much any of that from Simon. People get caught up in this next generation only have 20 second attention spans an so on (not sure if I posted the quote how if a video is longer than 20 seconds people don't watch it anymore), yet there's no evidence to suggest they come in for shorter formats either, yet you will alienate virtually your entire current fan base doing this.

I will actually be bringing the Steve Simon out banners in plain visibility of the camera at Birmingham if this crap ever happens on the main tour.
