Re: Sequel: More Prestigious? Olympic Gold vs. Year End Masters?
Hmm... Olympics may be prestigious but it would seem tennis doesn't exactly share that same standing in the olympics themselves - otherwise I hardly think it would have been deep-sixed from the Games between 1924 and 1988. And who knows, maybe it will disappear again (other sports which shared similar non-appearance fate at the Games and then returned, have once again been voted out.) One hopes it won't happen to tennis, but really, there's no guarantee that it won't
Hard to give full prestige status to something that was gone yesterday, here today and may be gone again tomorrow
