In the US there's tennis on a smaller scale for kids (I forget the name of it right now). I see commercials for it during the slams and the commentators mention it from time to time.
I think the quality of women's tennis tends to be better on medium paced or faster surfaces rather than slow/very slow surfaces.
The Babylon project was our last best hope for peace. A self-contained world five miles long, located in neutral territory. A place of commerce and diplomacy for a quarter of a million humans and aliens. A shining beacon in space, all alone in the night. It was the dawn of the third age of mankind, the year the great war came upon us all. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2259, the name of the place is Babylon 5.
