    Then the players will have to change sides after every point to maintain the notion of a break/interval. I guess the winner will be the one who wins 11 sets first.

    Ladies and gentlemen, on my right (player 1), and on my left (player 2). (Player 1) to serve, love-all, play!
    [rally]
    Game. First game won by (player 1).
    [change ends]
    Court x, 20 seconds. Court x, 20 seconds.
    Second game, love-all, play.
    ...
    20th game won by ...
    ...
    Final game, love-match point-all, play.
    [rally]
    Game. Match won by (player 1) 1-0 0-1 1-0 0-1 ... (full score announcement) ... 1-0.

    That's for singles, I won't even dare to imagine what a doubles match would become...
