on the Mens side...between Federer and Coria, during the awards ceremony, they had a live pop band out on the court serenading the crowd and players. It was an electric atmosphere. And made it all worth the wild.

They took a page out of the US Open's book and mixed the celebrity world with the Tennis world thus creating more of a draw.

Should the women incorporate such tactics....to make tennis fun, aware and much more popular?

I thought it was brilliant. Tennis don't have to be SO boring.

I think tennis needs to become more of a "crazy" sport. I say let people cheer during points, shout at double faults and effect the match

yes and no, there is still a sense of tradition that needs to go with the sport, but it don't hurt to alter or add to tradition. Cheering and Jeering is two different things...and some(Parisans) take it a little to far.
