Good summary. Again, I was very sceptical regarding the change of rules (I'm german... being sceptical is in our DNA) but I feel like BWF has chosen these 1,15 m wisely. Are there any guesses regarding how many % of pro doubles players fall into the 1,70-1,80 category? The effect on singles players will hardly be noticeable imo. The women still serve forehand to a high percentage and the men hardly attack the short backahand serves at all. Just look at the unbelievably sloppy serves of VA with which he gets away with regularly. They shouldn't get any worse in case he has to lower his serve by a couple of cm - so in fact he spoke a valid truth in his 1.15m joke-clip there.
