This kind of fan is the majority and the target audience, you don't want them to be interested in tennis per se, you want to give them superstars to bandwagon/idolize.

There's also sponsors of course: what better way to hype up the sport to the sponsors than with this golden era with amazing top 4 BS?

Real tennis fans want things to change, but unfortunately the $$$ doesn't come from them.
I thought more people hate the top 4 than vice versa I guess not It seems like a marketing strategy that only 6 year olds would fall for We need a revolt, and we need one now!
