It may be American indifference, but these two young women have received less attention than the first person’s eliminated from “Survivor,” “The Apprentice” and “American Idol” put together.
Wouldn't it be a more powerful argument to say that they reached less attention than the first person eliminated from "Survivor" alone, rather than the combination of three programs? He is weakening his own arguments, which is interesting.
Also he seems to think that dominance in tennis is the equivalent of interesting tennis. I was so bored myself, with the Williams sisters dominating the game and the same goes for Agassi and Sampras. I am actually very much pleased with the game at the moment, as upsets mean exciting matches in every round. Even in the women's game, though less there, fewer bagels are handed out in the early matches (the entire first week used to be a week of victories in no longer than an hour). What is he complaining about? Yes, it is a pity that serve & volley tennis is losing importance in the game, but putting an end to technological development is a very rigid kind of conservationism and might actually lead to the inability to create rackets with which net play regains its position in tennis.
