Should tennis implement a no-let rule? Of course not. That would be like diluting the aces.

We see serves hit the top of the net and ricochet unpredictably the vast majority of times. In 1968, the World Championship Tennis (WCT) circuit’s short-lived experiment with abolishing service lets ended because the players objected...."
