Why has Tennis been a European race dominated Sport?

every other major global sport is not dominated by any particular race, then why only tennis? what could be the reasons? are afros more athletic than europeans and are suited for far more physical games? or is it just that europeans are more interested in this sport and other races not that much?

how do you see the sport transitioning forward? with the sport becoming physical with each passing day, do you see more afro players joining the mix? what progress do you see in tennis as far as the five major races are concerned - african, indian, asian, middle-eastern and european?

Re: Why has Tennis been a White dominated Sport?

I don't know what you mean by MAJOR sport. Being a good tennis player demands a good coaching, traditions and money which you don't have in poor countries where African/Asian people live.

Re: Why has Tennis been a White dominated Sport?

Is this a legitimate question. And are you 3 years old, or pulling our legs?

And why would you post this today, during the middle of a match?

I don't like thread question, but your question is equally misguided.

It is like saying because Tiger Woods had dominated golf at some point, it is not a white dominated sport.

All sports whose roots are in private club are white dominated.
Polo is the other sports.

Re: Why has Tennis been a White dominated Sport?

why not take this thread in the spirit it was meant to be? this being the largest tennis forum in the world, the thread will be paid attention to and could evolve and serve as a blueprint for development of tennis in non white parts of the world......so lets chip in with knowledgeable posts......

Mainly because it started in private clubs. The cost of membership kept it rather exclusive.

that's a strong argument for african countries but what about the rest of the world? canada and united states has plenty of rich non whites......india (please stop categorizing india among asia, we are NOT asians) and asia invest a lot in sports in general......we are a different story because of our addiction to cricket but what about countries like in middle east where people are the richest on earth?
