View Full Version : Should Tennis have more events like the Olympics

I mean an event where people play for their country INDIVIDUALLY or in doubles, with no prize money but where ranking points are awarded. There is no world championships in tennis (though the end of year champs is often referred to as the world champs), and I think it would be great for tennis, if there was an event like the Olympics, not every year but say every 2 or 4 years. The players seem to be very relaxed on court and having a good time. Its also nice to see lesser ranked players have the expeirience of playing.

No because it wouldn't be worth it for the players. It's all about the money really. Look at everyone who's out of the men's draw. Federer, Ferrero, Henman and Safin and lots of people don't seem to be there. The players wouldn't be interested.
