Why can’t we watch tennis with the camera this close to court anymore? Or the quick closeups during the point and all the dynamic camera movement.
Compare the match above with this from just a few years later, which seems to have become the modern go-to camera placement
wth? I honestly think this is one of the major reasons tennis is no longer a big deal in the US (compared to football, basketball, baseball and surprisingly, even GOLF).
Has this ever been brought up by anyone - WTA, ATP, any commentators, Johnny Smack?
