    Most people that like watching it are out living it when it's on TV on the weekends. If you have no viewers you have no sponsors.

    Tennis has high dollar advertisers & sponsors ( Rolex, Mercedes, Paribas etc), they must get something out of it besides some free seats :)

    So does fishing, especially bass fishing.
    But you still have to have an audience. Some sports just dont have the following of others. I have shotguns & have only shot skeet 4 or 5 times in 25 years of owning a shotgun. It's just not my thing. Now fishing on the other hand... I have a garage full of fishing stuff :cool:

    Used to really enjoy Newk and Stan Smith slugging it out back in the day. Some of the best matches I have ever seen.

    You mean the John Newcome tennis camp between Bouerne and New Brownfalls?

    I like to watch tennis when gorgeous women play.

    But then, I like women playing beach volleyball.
