This website brings up a point regarding the cessation of bowing and curtsying at Wimbledon: that players may stop entering and leaving the court together.

I thought it was interesting, so I thought I'd pass it along.

Spirit, thanks for posting that article. I thought it was very interesting. I'll miss the curtseys and bows, and I also think it would be a shame if the custom of the players entering and leaving together was abandoned. His point about good manners, graciousness, and courtesy are well made. There is a sad lack of good manners in the world today, not just in tennis, but everywhere. The last lingering bits of good sportsmanship were in tennis, and now they are fading away also. Too sad.
