It's the only sport that's played year round yet it gets little exposure on t.v., and you have to search Yahoo's sports page just to find tennis results...

Is tennis lacking "Star power?"

Its not lacking star power but its lacking something. Golf is on tv on a regular basis during their season and it drags on for hours and hours without the well known players being focused on. I don't know what the problem is for tennis. I'm a fanatic and have been for years but it seems the number of tv coverage hasn't increased much.

I think you're right tennis seems to have more players with name recognition than golf, and it's a real sport!
