... Just that the US market barely notices the AO, so the whole tennis season for some is from June to September. Barely over 3 months.
The English only care about tennis during the run up to and during Wimbledon.
The French at least take an interest in grass roots and club tennis besides RG and their tour level events.
Guys, we're a tiny minority in the sports watching world, interested in tennis year round.

Then you might capture the sporting world's imagination.
