Why on earth is this allowed to go on?

If there is something wrong with the balls they should be replaced, if not just get on with it. None of this having the ballboy/girl throwing them extra balls and then grovelling around picking up the discarded balls.

It's great that players now get their own towels. That is a step in the right direction and the old process of fetching towels for them should never return.

Kick the pampering out.

Agree about the balls thing ,and the towels .I watched tennis years ago and nobody used a towel except maybe at the sitdown .I think it was Andy Roddick who started it ,used to use a towel between every shot practically ,its just a habit/comfort thing ,you dont actually drip of sweat after every shot.And when they used to get the ballboys/girls to hold the towel for them ,ridiculous nonsense .

Probably not HappyI have afeeling that once the pandemic eases/ends it will be back to the ballboy/girl being treated as a skivvy with alot of unneccessary bending down to pick up discarded balls ,and holding the towels at the same time .Not a job id fancy .

Watching Pera v Hibino.

It seems Pera wants a choice of three balls every serve. Really annoying to watch.

That's because she is acutely aware of the heavy burden that her performance is carrying Surprised

Massive agreement on the towels issue, how that ever was allowed to become a thing I have no idea, extremely unhygienic and unpleasant....

bit more sympathy on the balls as they are looking for one with the least wear usually..

Roddick used to sweat like a pig tbf. He started sweating and dropping liquid all over the court just by picking up his racquet.

He and Nadal are easily the heaviest sweaters I've seen in tennis.

I can't wait for ballkids to come back. When you're tired it can't help to have to walk 10 m between every point to wipe your sweat off when you badly need the rest.
