i asked my brother and he could only name sharapova, the williams sisters, halep and ivanovic (he thinks she's still playing :lol, then asked a couple friends and they could only name sharapova and serena :help:
+1I don't talk tennis with my non tennis friends. Is that weird?
Is it that interesting? Why is tennis the only sport where supposedly hardcore fans obsess over what casual fans know or think? Why do people like fongoeswest act as though the sport lives and dies by what people who don't care about it think? I'm so bored of TF's obsession with marketability and mainstream appeal. Does it appeal to YOU, is the question, and if not then no one's forcing you to keep watching it.Good thread Fon. It will be interesting to see the replies.
I suspect it'll generally be low numbers, but then again, I think many general sports fans would struggle to name 10 active ATP players.
