.....but we also have Davis Cup (another tournament I don't really care about
Tennis, when it comes to the Olympics, gets an artificial sense of allure and fascination, almost as if its just excess excitement that leaked over from the other sports. McEnroe suggested that if Olympic tennis were upgraded to slam status (in terms of points and format, I suppose) that it would legitimately be a lot more interesting.
Of course I'm going to watch (we're ALL going to watch) but in terms of "status"? It's basically a Masters event to me. And I'm not any more (or any less) excited about it.
Oscarovic cried like
when he lost olympics last time.If players care,fans care.
If you not care, you will not be cared by other fans.
