I'm in Australia, and tennis is probably in the top 3 in most played sports, probably after AFL Football, and maybe Basketball.
But, apart from the odd one during the Australian Open, I can't remember the last time I've seen an ad for tennis.
Probably the one were Hingis was hitting a tennis ball thru that town.
And I also remember the Nite Club one with Hingis and Kournikova, but they were both a long time ago.
I'm surprised the 'new balls please' ads never came down here.
Soccer and Basketball seen to be the sports that are advertised down here. The stupid thing is, Basketball is not broadcast at all on free to air TV, and very little Soccer is shown either.
If you want to see those sports, Cable is really the only way, whereas tennis, mostly the Grand Slam are always show live.
So network executives must have stuff up bad.
