'From 2013, on both the ATP World Tour and ATP Challenger Tour, a time violation between points (25 seconds) will be penalised in the first instance with a warning. For the second and all subsequent violations, the penalty will be a fault for the server and a point penalty for the receiver. Currently, the rule is a warning and then point penalty for both the server and receiver.'

That's still funny!
Has anyone noticed a significant difference at the AO? I know that at the lead up tournaments they enforced the rule. But so far at the AO, I haven't seen many penalties (if any) called.
That's not good Rafa, so i don't think it's good for the ATP, motion denied.
