Re: Why has Tennis been a White dominated Sport?
1)The cost of raising a tennis player
2)In the case of the USA, there's not enough tennis courts in areas populated by minority groups. It's very rare to find a free public tennis court. There's mainly basketball courts, or baseball fields. Also the popularity of American Football, and the opportunity of playing American Football can give you a free scholarship for college. I've never heard of a player getting a full-scholarship for playing Tennis, it may happen but I've never heard of it.
I'll be honest, I'm Dominican (Hispanic), and many of my Spanish friends call me weird and not a true "Dominican," because I'm more interested in Tennis than baseball (which is a stereotype that we all play well, and are interested in it). I root for Alex Rodriguez, but I prefer watching some great tennis matches (both men & women), and playing tennis is A LOT more fun to me, than baseball.
Each group has a certain interest in certain sports, but I consider it more of a social issue, than a racial issue to be honest.
